QWOP Game - running is pretty hard

Most of you have probably already heard about the QWOP Game. It' all over the Internet. That's how I found out about it. But for those of you that don't know it yet, here's what it's about.

The QWOP Game is a running simulation game in which the aim is to run as far as possible. You control the legs of your character (named Qwop) and try to synchronize the movement as best as possible. It's apparently pretty hard to achieve a good running distance. All I got so far are 6.8 meters and that after a lot of practice.

QWOP Game - running simulation

The game is controlled using just 4 keys. Go ahead, guess which keys... That's right: Q, W, O and P. The Q and W are used to control the thighs while O and P control the calves. The way you use these keys should mimic the human body movement in running as accurately as possible if you want to run the 100 meters.

A few tips the game developers give us is to start leaning the body forward at the beginning, tapping the O key. Also there seems to be a surprise at 50m and another one at 100m. Has anyone found what these are?

In any case, go ahead and give it a try. You could experience small problems accessing the game page, probably caused by the huge popularity the game is enjoying lately. More information about the game can be found on foddy.net.

If I find some really good tutorials on how to get a better distance I'll update this post. If you find any, please let me know. Also I would like to hear what other people have scored on this game. Leave a comment below. I'll keep practicing a little longer but it's king of frustrating.

Oh, I almost forgot. The link to the QWOP game is below:

How did you manage that? I almost broke my keyboard and all I got was 6.8 meters. What's your secret?
