FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hoffman Estates, IL– October 10, 2008 - High Voltage Software, Inc., one of the world's largest independent developers, today announced High Voltage Hot Rod Show, an intense new racing title scheduled for release on the WiiWare downloadable service later this Fall.
High Voltage Hot Rod Show requires players to master more than the basic racing skills to compete. A unique stunt system gives players multiple ways to build boost, which drastically increases a Hot Rod's speed. If you get too greedy, you might crash and burn! The game utilizes the company's proprietary Quantum 3 Game Engine technology, which provides graphical performance and game play not possible on other Wii titles.
"We wanted High Voltage Hot Rod Show to be a fresh and exciting racing title for the Wii that would provide up to four friends with endless replay value," said Kerry Ganofsky, CEO and founder of High Voltage Software. "The result is a game that is easy to pick up and play, but maintains a core of skill-based racing, which givesit special appeal."
"Style was important to us on this project," said Benjamin Savage, Lead Artist on the title. "We were inspired by the work of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth and that led us to design some really exciting characters, Hot Rods, and even music. We hope players will love the direction we've taken."
"We set the bar for ourselves very high with each new title" said Eric Nofsinger, Chief Creative Officer of High Voltage Software. "Not only have we created a fantastic racing title with support for split-screen racing and online leaderboards, but we've also demonstrated the incredible versatility of the Quantum 3 Game Engine."
