Betting their upcoming project will give even existing poker players reason to invest, Teyon explained to BeefJack what changes they’re making to the 3DS version of Governor of Poker in preparation for an (unconfirmed) October launch.
Poker already possesses depth in its standard form, but Governor of Poker, one of Teyon’s upcoming releases for the 3DS eShop, promises to bring that to a virtual setting and even take it further.
“It’s a poker game with more depth,” said PR manager Aneta Bajda, “as the goal is not just to win games of poker, but to utilize poker to gain cash and transport to buy out Texan towns and eventually become the Governor of Poker.” Teyon believes this will motivate even existing poker players to embrace the game’s ladder system and more unique elements.
Governor of Poker already exists on assorted web portals, but Teyon assures me, as publisher of the 3DS version, that it’s not a straight port.
“The main mechanics of the game remain the same as the web version as it has already proven to be very successful,” said producer Łukasz Bróg. So those haven’t changed. Where you’ll find gameplay enhancements, though, is in the point system and mode inclusions, among other “minor changes.”
Bróg continued, “After completing the game and defeating the Governor, players will still be able to continue playing and enjoying the game as they will have the opportunity to compete with other Governor of Poker players via online leaderboards. We also introduced two different controls given the 3DS’ ability, providing players with the choice to use either the button controls or the touch screen.”
I’m also told the game features 24 achievements, as well as a “Quick Poker mode for those players wanting a quick pick-up-and play poker game in-between their quest for the title of Governor of Poker.”
Teyon expects the game to release early October “if all goes smoothly.”
