Mad Riders trailer goes heavy on the meta

Mad Riders has released a launch trailer for its release next week, which cheekily pokes fun at game trailer cliches.

Off-road racing game Mad Riders has a release date of May 29, and studio Techland has found a clever way to get its trailer noticed. Rather than release a video showing off the features as normal, it's released a cheeky commentary on game trailers as a whole.

The trailer pokes fun at trailer cliches like teaser-teasers and artsy slow-motion. The game is coming next week to PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 for $9.99 (800 MSP).

      That was the best trailer my eyes have laid eyes on. The trees. Always the trees.

      Lol that made me actually want to buy the game. Best trailer I've seen in a long time.

        That was funny. I have been hoping the game will be good. My ATV Offroad Fury itch hasn't been scratched in a long time.
