    Hi all,

    We just wanted to let you know that weve submitted an update (1.0.3) of Raging Thunder to the AppStore which includes <drumroll> online, real-time, Internet multiplayer. I *think* this is a first for an iPhone / iPod Touch title.

    Weve received *a lot* of e-mail from gamers about Raging Thunder - the majority of it very positive. The one feature that people seem to have missed is online multiplayer. Nice guys that we are, weve taken these words to heart and included it in the latest update at no extra cost. Remember though that this first release is a public beta. There might be issues still in there, and wed really appreciate if you report these to beta@polarbit.com

    So, what are you waiting for? This is what we need you to do:

    Download our free PC server software from www.polarbit.com/beta, read the instructions and run it, if you want to host your own game server.

    You *do* want to run your own game server dont you?

    Remember: the more people that host servers, the more servers there are for people to choose from, and the more people will hang around looking for someone to play against! For this thing to work, it kinda hinges on you guys actually getting some servers up out there around the globe. It would be really cool to see a fat server list once the game goes live in a few days. Wed also recommend you to include the name of your country or something in your server name instructions to configure are enclosed with the server package.

    Then, update the game from the AppStore, or buy it if you havent yet. Make sure you get the 1.0.3 (or later) version! If it isn't available straight away, don't despair - it's on its way through the system and will appear shortly (usually it takes a couple of days). Internet will not work on the 1.02 or 1.0.1.

    Run the game, tap Start / Multiplayer / Internet and pick a server! Starting a new game and gameroom once youve logged in to a server works pretty much exactly like it does with local network games.

    I hope youll all enjoy it, and I look forward to kicking all your asses in MP games real soon (Ill be the guy in front of you in the black car).

    Cheers,

    Tommy
