Hover Kart Racing Screenshots



New York, New York (June 15, 2009) – OMGPOP, a leading online social, multiplayer gaming site announces its newest addition, Hover Kart, the most anticipated Kart racing game to hit the web. With 3D graphics and 16 bit sound, up to eight players can play live, at a time, on one of the most in depth flash games ever developed. Hover Kart features over 20 tracks as well as multiple Karts, engines and drivers to choose from. Players can earn or buy coins and use them to purchase performance, design and/or driver upgrades. The Hover Kart game coincides with OMGPOP’s full release of a virtual goods shop and payment platform.

“Hover Kart will be the No. 1 online game this summer,” stated Dan Porter, CEO for OMGPOP. “With so much in depth game play as well as the ability to challenge your friends, we believe that there is nothing else like this on the web right now.”

While OMGPOP remains a free-to-play site, members who want more now have additional options. Gamers can subscribe for “star” access which enables special features on the site. Also, “star” access allows players to conduct micro-transactions for Hover Kart to buy faster engines, extra lives, better powerups and cosmetic items. The explosion of interest in virtual goods and micro-transactions as both a new business model, and a way of life for a new demographic of users, finds OMGPOP in the right place at the right time.

OMGPOP, previously known as iaminlikewithyou, is a platform for real time social gaming. The addictive and viral gaming site has grown to 20 million game plays a month since the launch of its first game only 18 months ago. The OMGPOP social platform makes it easy for users to play against their friends or play OMGPOP community members. OMGPOP’s community consists of mostly teens and college kids, ages 15 to 25, and prides itself on being 50/50 male female.
