TGC takes off with Ikaro

Berlin, November 20th 2009. TGC– The Games Company announces the release of the unique air racing game Ikaro today. Instead of squeaking wheels PC gamers expect in Ikaro turbulent neck-and-neck duels with agile microlights. TGC assigned the Italian studio Magic Dream Games with its development offering racing fans a completely new game experience. The worldwide release is scheduled for the first quarter 2010.

On as much challenging as varied air courses pilots fight against each other. Thereby you cross tremendous dusty canyons and impressive cities or pass with breakneck stunts the checkpoints over a moony island. A dynamic weather system adds even more excitement to the race. Suddenly starting snowfall or an upcoming thunderstorm can bring your certain believed pole position in great danger.

In addition to the extensive career mode Ikaro also comes up with an adrenaline loaded multiplayer. Up to 6 players start their engines either via LAN or internet and compete against each other with their microlights. Here the integrated worldwide ranking incites you to maximum performance.
