V.I.P. CASINO: BLACKJACK TO HIT THE Wii
High Voltage Software announces new WiiWare title
Hoffman Estates, IL – May 12, 2008 - High Voltage Software, Inc., one of the world's largest independent developers, announced that V.I.P. Casino Blackjack ™, a revolutionary new 3D card game, was released today as a launch title for Nintendo's WiiWare™ downloadable service.
V.I.P. Casino Blackjack offers the richest and most realistic blackjack experience available today. Unlike the static 2D interfaces found in other titles, V.I.P. Casino Blackjack breaks new ground with fully realized characters, cards, and casinos rendered in real-time 3D on High Voltage Software's proprietary Quantum 3 Game Engine technology. The game offers four-player multiplayer as well as 20 challenges for players to unlock on their own.
"We were aiming for the most realistic blackjack experience possible," said Kerry J. Ganofsky, CEO and founder of High Voltage Software. "This is a game that will be instantly familiar to anyone who's ever set foot in the top casinos in Las Vegas, but we also expect it to draw new fans who have never tried the card game."
The game takes full advantage of the Wii™ hardware, with multiple control schemes, including a point-and-click option that makes it easy for anyone to jump in and play. No other game offers such an immersive casino experience.
