Synetic GmbH is a German video game company specialising in racing games. The company was founded in 1996 in Gütersloh by 5 former members of Ascaron. All 5 original members are still working for the company. Although the company with its team of 8 employees is rather small and its games are virtually unknown outside of Germany, their titles are among the most popular racing games in Germany and are consistently among Germany's best-selling games.
While originally only developing games for Windows PCs, Synetic's later releases (starting with 2003's Mercedes Benz World Racing) were also available for a selection of consoles.
