Revolutionary Computer Racing Game Released by Cougar Interactive

Cougar Interactive announces its release of The Zoo Race computer game, featuring animals in a race never seen in the gaming industry. With a unique theme set to a rocking soundtrack, The Zoo Race stands apart from other games.

Sacramento, CA September 17, 2007– Cougar Interactive announces The Zoo Race, a new type of racing game never seen in the gaming industry. Cougar Interactive’s priority and goal is to develop new and different types of creative game entertainment with Biblical themes.

"The Zoo Race is the most one-of-a-kind racing game developed,” says Randall Alaimo, the CEO and founder of Cougar Interactive.“It is surely different. Neither the PC nor the console world has ever seen anything like it. With this new game, we’ve provided massive fun for a large audience. In addition, the music soundtrack and the God voices provide the core of the important messages in a highly entertaining environment.”

The Zoo Race’s unique storyline sets it apart from other video games. After teasing her friend Rueben about believing in the Bible story of Noah's Ark, Hannah the librarian has a dream about it, in which she and her friends are reshaped into animals. They participate in the race“Games of Celebration” after the world floods. But, unknown to everyone, Noah’s sons have created many obstacles on the racetrack to slow down the participants, including hurdles, glass mazes, piranhas, fire geysers, exploding barrels and balloons, earthquakes, stampedes, trampolines, bomber planes, rockets, cannons and more.

The Zoo Race 3D action game has racetrack stunts not found in other previous game titles. With an unprecedented eight characters and eight racetracks to choose from, players will find each race different than the last.

The Zoo Race, with intense action and classic hard rock music, has been developed for those ages 9 - 99 years old. The original 11-song soundtrack is as bold as ever, with veterans Mike Dryden of Sound Design Studio playing lead guitar and singer Tiffany Michelle Casto of Pure Vocals doing the bulk of the vocalist duties.

In addition to the races, players can also visit the ark at nighttime, which will reveal an animal dance party unlike any other, where the creatures dance underneath colored spotlights to rock music. Players can click on any creature to see a solo dance or can click on Noah to hear a heavenly voice on the ark’s dance stage. Additionally, after every race, the winner is featured on an outdoor dance stage underneath moonlight and blasting fireworks, with the losers looking onwards.

The Zoo Race is compatible with Windows 98, ME, 2000, 2003, XP and Vista. A processor of 1.6 GHz and RAM of 512 MB minimum is needed to play the game. The free shareware download is available at http://www.noahsadventures.com/downloads/ZooRace.exe.
