Polarbit and FILAO Announce RAGING THUNDER, the Next Step in Mobile 3D Gaming

Paris - October 20th, 2006 - Polarbit, top-notch 3D games developer, and FILAO, leading publisher of games, references and lifestyle applications for mobile phones and PDAs launch their collaboration with the release of Raging Thunder, a gut-churning, tire-burning racer developed for a broad range of mobile platforms and handheld devices (Symbian S60 & UIQ, PalmOS, Windows PPC & Smartphone, Brew and WIPI).

Race against time, CPU controlled opponents or other speed addicts in this fast paced and exhilarating coin-op style racing game. The crisp graphics, responsive controls and polished details of Raging Thunder are sure to impress both casual gamers and the hard-core alike.

Says Mitri Bautista-Wiberg, co-founder of Polarbit: "Raging Thunder is a landmark title on the mobile games market. We're very proud of how it turned out and excited to be partnering with an enterprising and dynamic publisher such as FILAO in its release."

"Until today, 3D mobile games were limited to a pretty small number of handsets. Raging Thunder breaks the market limitations and like no other 3D game is able to run on an extensive range on mobile phones and PDAs. We are very enthusiastic to publish and bring such a high quality gaming experience to a large audience. This superb game from Polarbit has all the ingredients to become a market reference." Says Francois Clemenceau, Head of Sales and Business Development at FILAO.
