VooFoo Studios, the independent development, and publishing team currently working on cue-sports simulation, This Is Pool, has announced that they will be an official tour partner to The WPBSA World Seniors Snooker Tour for 2018/19.
The partnership will see VooFoo Studios and the World Seniors Tour team-up across all qualifying and ranking events on the tour, where This Is Pool will benefit from over 6-months of promotional activity throughout the duration of the 2018/19 World Seniors Snooker Tour calendar.
On the partnership, Jason Francis, Chairman of World Seniors Snooker said “As someone who grew up playing Jimmy White’s snooker on the Atari, I’m really excited to welcome VooFoo Studios as tour partner. This is Pool is an incredibly realistic video game that can even improve your real-life game, fans of the World Seniors Tour will be amazed by just how close to the real world sport it is. You really can play like ‘Whirlwind’ White or ‘Hurricane’ Higgins, and if you’re good enough, you may just prove to be the next Stephen Hendry!”
Commenting on the announcement, VooFoo Studios’ Marketing and PR Manager, Sean Walsh said “We’re really proud to be partnering with the World Seniors Tour and some of the most iconic and legendary names in the history of World Snooker. This is a fantastic partnership that aligns us with a dedicated and highly enthusiastic cue sports fan base. We’re looking forward to showcasing This Is Pool’s stunning visuals and hyper-authentic gameplay over the course of the next 6-months on the World Seniors Tour calendar”.
This Is Pool builds on VooFoo Studios’ decade of development expertise making best-in-class cue-sports games to deliver the most expansive and immersive game to date. Not only that it’s always great when a game like This is Pool is endorsed by the sporting body it is celebrating.
Not a fan of pool/snooker myself I am oddly impressed by the graphics of this game and look forward to videos showing off what players can do. Stay tuned to GamEir to keep up to date with This Is Pool.
