 Mark Williams, Technology Director at VooFoo Studios, said This Is Pool® represents the culmination of all our years’ experience making market-leading cue sports simulations and will offer a much enhanced experience to anything we’ve created before.  We’ve rewritten the rule-book to create the most realistic, technically advanced cue sports game ever made that is going to take the genre to the next level.”
