Tall Chair, the independent game maker from San Francisco, announced July 27th as the launch date for their latest game, Cowboys vs Zombies, for the iPhone ® , iPad TM and iPod touch ® .

The game showcases Tall Chair's penchant for creating engaging 3D content on the iPhone. The San Francisco company has been building a reputation for great games by working on several unique projects including Sherlock Holmes Mysteries with Warner Brothers. With Cowboys vs. Zombies, Tall Chair has created a colorful, playful, and highly stylized view of the old west with a quirky horror twist.

Cowboys vs. Zombies delivers a new take on tower defense by featuring quality 3D art, mobile towers, and unpredictable swarming zombie hoards. You play the Sheriff in charge of defending the town of UnDeadwood with your posse of colorful cowboy and cowgirl characters. Hire cowboys for your posse, upgrade, and position them wisely to defend against wave after wave of zombies hell-bent on destroying the town.

Expanding on the Tower Defense genre, Tall Chair’s Cowboys vs. Zombies uses the environments to add to the strategy. Invading zombies destroy the buildings, which reduces the safe places from which your cowboys can defend. Choosing which buildings to defend and when to fall back is key to surviving. When the zombies have leveled the town, the Sheriff is vulnerable. Loose the Sheriff and you lose the game. Tall Chair announced they will be hosting a launch party on Thursday July 29th, 2010 at Project One in San Francisco. The event will be exclusive for industry and press from 7pm-8pm and open to the public 8 pm to midnight. The event features content from the game, a question and answer session with the creators, entertainment and a surprise treat for fans of the game.

Founder/Evangelist Ben Acevedo stated,“It’s great to be launching Cowboys vs Zombies and to be able to give it a proper send-off this upcoming week. We have been receiving a lot of support from like-minded indie artists and we wanted to give a little back. We will be making a special announcement on our Facebook page on Monday about something special we are doing for our fans at the Launch Party.”

Cowboys vs. Zombies will be available on the App Store on Tuesday, July 27, 2010 for a special one-day price of $0.99. Learn more at http://www.cowboysvszombies.com or the game’s Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/cowboysvszombies.
