New TT game on the way

A new Island business has unveiled plans to develop a state-of-the-art interactive online game based on the TT. 

Waterhorse says it's in negotiations with five international corporations interested in investing in the venture.

Players would pit their skills around a virtual mountain circuit against challengers worldwide, in a free-to-play game with chargeable upgrades.

Santon-based corporate services consultant Doug Stewart says a contact in Hollywood, impressed with the Island's film sector, suggested the idea.
