Arctic Stud Poker Run Ships, Updated Demo

Got Game Entertainment announces the release of the full version of Arctic Stud Poker Run, the combat-racing poker dealie, which is now available for online purchase. Accompanying the release is an updated playable demo, which is mirrored on AtomicGamer and FileFront. Here's word:
Weston, CT – March 6, 2008 - Got Game Entertainment LLC today announced that “Arctic Stud Poker Run”, an arcade-style combat racing game for the PC, has shipped to retail across North America. Developed by Game Refuge, the veteran arcade team behind “Rampage World Tour” and “General Chaos”, “Arctic Stud Poker Run” is a decidedly irreverent, over-the-top reinvention of real-life cross-country "poker runs" in which players race from place to place picking up playing cards in an effort to assemble a winning hand. With its revolutionary multi-player battle experience, this action-packed “full-contact poker” game throws down high stakes, high speeds, and high explosives. “Arctic Stud Poker Run” makes its retail debut at $19.99 (USD) and is also available for immediate download purchase from www.ArcticStudPokerRun.com. The game is rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB for Alcohol and Tobacco Reference, Comic Mischief, and Mild Violence.

No pleasant dealer in a bad tuxedo shirt and bow tie in this game. Rather, in this “friendly” game of cards featuring 37 unique, playable characters and 126 levels spanning 81 square miles in 9 environments, players race around on high-powered vehicles, engaging machine guns, dynamite, heat-seeking-missiles and more, to find, grab, or steal their winning hand.

“’Arctic Stud Poker Run’ lets you do all those things you daydream about while patiently sitting at a Texas Hold ‘Em table,” said Got Game Entertainment President Howard Horowitz. “Here’s your chance to steal cards, shoot machine guns, and put a bounty on the head of your biggest poker competition.”

While gameplay is fast and furious, “Arctic Stud Poker Run” allows players with varying skill sets to compete effectively thanks to the “Auto Card Swap” feature which alleviates the need for advance poker knowledge, plus the “Big Hand Possible” feature which advises the best available hands before the round begins. “Arctic Stud Poker Run” also features cash-based tournament scoring and a player-to-player bounty system for alliance formation.

I find it hard to be objective, since I worked on the game, but anyone who plays LAN Games on a regular basis should definitely check this game out! It was designed, first and foremost, as a multi-player LAN game, and once you play a few rounds with good friends, I'm pretty sure you'll be addicted.
