ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL -- Incredible Technologies is planning a full relaunch of its popular miniature golf-themed videogame, PowerPutt. The company said that its new PowerPutt Live will not be an update of the present piece, but rather a completely new game designed for the original game's large, loyal base of fans.

"Since the release of PowerPutt in 2008, operators have been asking -- make that demanding -- that we create new courses for the game," said IT senior vice-president of sales Don Pesceone. "Then operators told us that they wanted to take the game to the next level and conduct contests, tournaments and leagues on PowerPutt."

Pesceone explained that the second-generation PowerPutt game conforms to IT's proven strategy of "hooking players on compelling gameplay, incredible graphics and social competitiveness."

The new PowerPutt Live will offer all-new courses and customizable golfers, as well as IT's novel FACTS (Free Automated Contest and Tournament Software) and AdWiz programs. AdWiz allows operators to create custom and location-specific ads and promotional messages.

In conjunction with the game's relaunch, Arlington, IL-based IT has developed a program enabling operators to participate in the PowerPutt phenomenon at the earliest date possible -- and then cash in next spring, when the new game is released.

PowerPutt Live will be released exclusively with a high-definition display, 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," he explained. "More importantly, we will ship our early adopters PowerPutt Live well before their competitors who take a wait-and-see approach."

Operators can call the IT Sales Hotline at (847) 870-7027, ext. 106, for order information.
