Just finished A Slower Speed of Light, a computer game in which simple relativity is explored - the (simulated) speed of light is slowed bit by bit.
As it does so, all sorts of relativistic effects happen (my favourite is the Doppler effect, but others are perhaps more interesting). Travelling sideways is particularly trippy.
It took me about 29 minutes. Well, in my frame of reference, it did. In the game’s universe it was a little over half an hour…
