Polarbit's Raging Thunder Named Best Driving Game Of 2006

Stockholm, 2007-01-23. Leading on-line mobile game journal MobileGameFaqs has proclaimed Raging Thunder, from Swedish developer Polarbit, "Best Driving Game" of 2006, placing it ahead of such giants as "Need for Speed: Carbon" and "Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift".

MobileGameFaqs praises Raging Thunder as "Slick, stylish and with graphics and gameplay that will blow your socks off".

"We're really proud of this award, especially considering the harsh competition in the genre", says Polarbit co-founder Janne Korpela and continues "Firstly, since it confirms all the positive feeling we ourselves have about Raging Thunder, secondly because it shows that smaller, talented and technically proficient studios such as ourselves can take on the big boys and beat them at their own game."

Says Polarbit CTO Anders Nilsson: "We've worked hard on both Raging Thunder and the underlying Fuse middleware platform. This is a nice confirmation that it was time well invested and that we're definitely on the right track. 2007 couldn't have started in a nicer way."
