SEARCH TERM SKOKIE, IL -- New from Raw Thrills Inc. is Dirty Drivin', an off-road driving game featuring a 42" high-definition (1080p) monitor and a generous selection of courses, rides and vehicle upgrades to keep patron interest high.

Unveiled at the recent International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions trade show in Orlando, FL, Dirty Drivin' features an eye-catching cabinet and the ability to interconnect as many as eight pieces in a location, permitting patrons to play against the computer or compete head-to-head, which spurs repeat play.

Betson Enterprises (Carlstadt, NJ), which is responsible for Raw Thrills' marketing, reported that visitors to its exhibit at the IAAPA Attractions Expo were favorably impressed by the game. "Players raved about the amazing graphics, and loved that they could save their upgrades and progress on the keypad-based player account system," the nationwide distributor explained.

Players can choose from a selection of 10 vehicles and 14 hyper-realistic tracks. Points are scored by impeding competitors through dirty tricks effected by a variety of onboard weapons; earning points enables contestants to upgrade their vehicles and enhance their power. Hundreds of enhancements are available, rounding out what Betson describes as "a truly addictive combat racing experience."

Software for the new game was developed by Specular Interactive (Rancho Santa Margarita, CA), which also did the programming for the speedboat racing game H2Overdrive; Raw Thrills launched an arcade version of this game two years ago.

Dirty Drivin' stands 77" high, and is 67" deep (including the driver's seat and controls) and 41" wide.
