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.
