Western Wind Wafts into the iPhone App Store from Rock Ridge Games

Austin, TX - September 1, 2009

Rock Ridge Games today announced the release of Western Wind for iPhone and iPod Touch. Available in the App Store now for just 99 cents, Western Wind is a melody and memory-based game that puts the music back into musical fruit. Hilariously addictive, off-color yet in-tune, Western Wind should be a part of everyone’s App library.

Western Wind is a tale from out of the Wild West that has been overlooked by modern historians. Six cowboys, all members of the musical troupe“Black Bart and The Tumblin’ Tumbleweeds”, set out seeking fame and fortune in the prosperous West. After taking a wrong turn in Albuquerque they are lost, hungry, and are forced to burn their instruments for warmth.

A case of beans is all they have left. That and their unwavering drive to keep the dream of hitting it big on the emerging Frontier music scene alive. Always resourceful, The Tumblin’ Tumbleweeds make music in the only way they can, and Western Wind is born from the ashes of their burned guitars and rusted bean cans.

Western Wind features two main gameplay modes: Musical Fruit and Follow That Fart. Core to the experience is Musical Fruit, which features 12 notes that players can use to create their own songs. Whether it’s an original tune or a campfire favorite, players will be able to craft and save their musical masterpieces. Follow That Fart is a fresh take on the classic game Simon Sez, where players must repeat a pattern of notes that becomes more complex and challenging as players advance.

Additionally, Share a Song mode allows players to play back any of their recorded songs. Your friends will bust a gut laughing as they listen to your fart-filled rendition of Tiny Bubbles.

Make music the Old West way with Western Wind!
