The new rising star of golf - Golfstar

Hamburg, August 18, 2010– gamigo has an announcement that will make the hearts of golf enthusiasts beat a little faster. Soon Golfstar, a golf MMOG with impressive graphics, will be added to the publisher's portfolio of games.

A staggering 30 players can form a group to play a round on one of the game's six courses. And the best part: you don't have to wait for the other guy to finish his turn. Everyone plays at the same time and can even watch their opponent's golf balls fly past them. Players can learn passive skills that influence their stamina and strength, for example, as well as active skills. These are a bit trickier and players will need some skill to master them.

A variety of clothing players can choose from to create their golf star's own style brings color to the course. The game is rendered in highly-detailed anime-style graphics.

Patrick Streppel, member of gamigo's executive board: "We shaped the market for golf MMOGs three years ago with Shot Online, creating one of the most successful online sports games in Europe. Now we can apply that experience to Golfstar, building on the strengths of its predecessor and bringing in new ideas."

"In developing Golfstar, we've paid close attention to feedback from the community. The game has everything a modern golf MMOG needs: superb graphics and realistic gameplay with loads of skills and items as well as tried and tested community features. Golfstar has the stuff to be a great hit!"
