Partners, the Armadillo Cowboy game is ready to rope you
November 30, 2001,
Point Roberts, WA, - Wild Heart Ranch Inc, an
entertainment and toy company is pleased to announce the launch of the
Internet video game "The Armadillo Cowboy Club". The game is
part of the
initial brand launch for the Armadillo Cowboy line. The game is based
an original story, about three Armadillo Deputy heroes that capture criminal
coyotes with slingshots firing bees as well as fast flying lassos. Cast
characters include Sam the Rattler, the local Sheriff, Wyatt Dirt the
Armadillo, a pack of dirty Coyotes, three old nags, and more.
The game takes you
into desert scenes, an old fashioned street shoot out and
a saloon fight. Sound effects add humor, creating a " good old boy"
western slapstick game for all ages to enjoy.
The characters, artwork and themes have a retro look and feel, reminiscent
of the animation from Company's founder's generation. " I grew up
Bunny, Huckleberry Hound and Donald Duck. I can still find myself immersed
in an old cartoon show. I want to create a Company with brands that emulate
the quality of family entertainment I grew up, with humor, action and
characters and animation," said founder Dawn Van Zant.
Russell Naftal, an
award-winning producer in the entertainment industry,
created all of the original artwork, character design, backgrounds and
themes. His cartooning talents combined with his wide range of industry
experience have created a family friendly, action packed game.

designer, is a web design company specializing in the
creation of flash-based games and other interactive content. Michael Stenger
