Tenderfoot Games recently announced that the open beta version of Wild West Online: Gunfighter has been host to over 250,000 gunfights in its first month. In the game players take the role of a gunslinger in the 19th Century American West. As gun fighters, players engage in tactical duels, working their way across hundreds of towns and territories as they make a name for themselves.

“We’re gratified but not surprised that players have really gotten into Gunfighter,” said Ariel Butler, Executive Producer for Tenderfoot Games. “The amazing thing is how fast word is spreading. We haven’t even begun to build in the ties to social networking that will really spread this game to players around the world.” Butler added, “The game is very easy to learn. Players quickly find there are multiple paths to victory, allowing extreme play flexibility. It’s great mental exercise, because you must outthink your opponents to win. We’ve been playing this game throughout its development and even we keep discovering new, viable strategies!”

“WildWestOnline: Gunfighter’s ability to draw an audience has proven there’s a large, unfulfilled desire for Western-themed games,” Butler continued. “Our game gives fans of the genre a chance to immerse themselves in a time when conflicts were settled – sometimes famously – with determination and loaded six-guns. Best of all, it’s a game that does not require massive time commitment. If you have a few spare minutes or need a short mental break from work, you can drop in and blow off some stress with a quick gunfight.
