We haven’t had many new game announcements to discuss recently, even though a number of games are in-development as we speak. Most of the time announcements are made a short time before the game is to be released but there are exceptions to that rule. Here is one of those exceptions as Incredible Technologies (makers of Golden Tee and Silver Strike) have just sent out a press release for a game they plan on releasing about a year from now – a sequel to their PowerPutt coin-op game called PowerPutt LIVE.
Where the first PowerPutt lacked online functionality, the upcoming Live version will include those features we have seen in IT’s other LIVE games such as tournaments, stats tracking, character customization and more. A press release can be found below and in the meantime we’ll just have to wait to hear more.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE!

(May 18, 2011 – Arlington Heights, IL) Incredible Technologies announced today that a full relaunch of their hit mini-golf video game, PowerPutt, will be released in the spring of 2012.
PowerPutt LIVE will not be an update but rather a completely new game that will capitalize on the original game’s large and loyal fan base.
“Since the release of PowerPutt in 2008, operators have been asking – make that demanding – that we create new courses for the game,” said Don Pesceone, senior vice-president of sales. “Then operators told us that they wanted to take the game to the next level and conduct contests, tournaments and leagues on PowerPutt. Never let it be said that IT doesn’t listen to its customers!”
PowerPutt conforms to IT’s proven strategy of hooking players on compelling game play, incredible graphics and social competitiveness.
“This game is a perfect storm of mainstream fan favorite and cool cult hit. It appeals to everyone,” Pesceone said.
In conjunction with the game’s relaunch, IT has developed a program that allows operators to get in on the PowerPutt phenomenon now – and to cash in next spring when the game is released.
“PowerPutt LIVE will be released exclusively in HD,” Pesceone said. “From June 1 through July 31, qualified operators who purchase a PowerPutt LIVE and a Showpiece transfer cabinet will save nearly $300 and enjoy 0% financing with 12 months to pay – but more importantly we will ship our early adopters PowerPutt LIVE well before their competitors who take a wait-and-see approach.”
To place an order or to simply get more information, operators should call their salesperson or the IT Sales Hotline at 847.870.7027 x 106.
