Hello, my name is Wyatt Lovgren. I have been trying to get a hold of the Arctc Cat Corp. to see if they would like to make a video game. I am a big fan of Arctic Cat snowmobiles, atvs, and side by sides. I am only asking if Arctic Cat would make a snowmobiling game. There is a snowmobiling game that has been made called ski doo challenge but I will not get it because I do not like ski doo and I have seen the quality of the game and it isn't very good. I am not asking for anything free from Arctic Cat, just that they would consider making a game. There are many people besides myself that would like forthis to happen. There are times when people can't go out and ride because there isn't enough snow or they just want to but it's sued and they can't go out. So why not be able to play a game when you can't go out and ride. I have thought about this for quite some time. How the game could look and the events that could take place, and alot of other details including a name. I am asking for Arctic Cat to do this for the fans and riders of Arctic Cat products. Along with many other people I have talked to they also think it would be nice to have a snowmobiling game. Please think about this and send an email back to me about what you think and I could tell you some of the details that I have been thinking about for the game.
