Race.a.bit out now on iOS, Android & PC

Düren, 2 nd August – We are in a good mood. The sun is shining, summer has finally arrived. So we are enjoying ourselves, looking forward to a great weekend. And we want to share the happiness with gamers worldwide.

Thus we have decided to make a brand new game available to the public for free for the next couple of weeks. And when we say free, we mean f-r-e-e. No strings attached. No adverts, no in-game purchasing. So what is this all about? Simply put: We love this game, and it comes with a huge social component - players can create their own levels with a powerful editor, share their tracks and times with players worldwide across all operating systems and can send challenges to other players to beat their best times on any track they completed.

All it takes is a tweet/facebook post. The game and its freshly launched website can be found at
