Games software developer Wideload Shorts is soon to launch for Microsoft Xbox 360 Live Arcade a new poker game branded Texas Cheat ‘Em, which will support avatars, party chat, online multiplayer, matchmaking and high score tables for a full-spectrum online play experience.
 
Wideload punts the new offering as: "There's No Limit to the fast-paced, frenetic fun in Texas Cheat ‘Em. This game is a new take on the classic Texas Hold ‘Em rules, turning an average online poker table upside down by layering party games and other gambling minigames on top of the basic rules, and allowing players to cheat to win.
 
"Cheating is fundamental in Texas Cheat ‘Em! Cheat attacks are earned by players through more than a dozen minigames, so time usually spent waiting for others to deal or bet in online poker is replaced with loads of fun as players hoodwink their opponents. The game offers single-player as well as multiplayer options for up to eight players for a truly unique and robust gameplay experience.
 
"Launch date is May 13, 2009."
