SAN FRANCISCO--November 15th, 2013: Choice of Games announced today that "Showdown at Willow Creek," the latest in their popular line of multiple-choice interactive-fiction games, is now available for iOS, Android and, via the Chrome Web Store, Windows, OS X, and Linux.
Saddle up and defend the town of Willow Creek from nefarious outlaws and city slickers! It all starts when a rancher's daughter goes missing, and it ends at the showdown at Willow Creek, where greed, lust, science, and Mother Nature will face off at high noon.
"Showdown at Willow Creek" is the interactive western mystery novel by Alana Joli Abbott, where your choices control the story. The game is entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--and driven by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
For example, when the renegade outlaw you're chasing on horseback turns to shoot at you, what will you choose?
A) I shoot back!
B) I shoot his horse out from under him.
C) I trust my luck to get me close enough to unhorse him.
D) Retreat! I've got enough information to solve the mystery; that'll have to do.
Gamble, seduce, brawl, or shoot your way through Willow Creek, where gunslingers make the laws and everybody has secrets. Will you romance the gambler or the soiled dove (or both)? Will you side with the scientists bringing electricity to the Old West, or with a tribe of Native American Utes? Will you unravel the conspiracy that threatens to tear the town apart, or will you light the fuse to blow it all sky high?
