PARIS – June 27, 2012 – Fresh from the oven, The Game Bakers’ latest delicacy, SQUIDS Wild West, is now on the App Store! This turn-based RPG continues the story that started in last year’s chart-topping SQUIDS while offering exciting new gameplay challenges and improvements, ensuring that SQUIDS Wild West will be a hit with returning fans and new players alike. The game can be downloaded today for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch: http://itunes.apple.com/app/squids-wild-west/id522145076

In SQUIDS Wild West, a team of springy heroes continues their epic adventure across the seven seas to put a stop to the black ooze sliming up their idyllic kingdom. Set in Seawood, the hometown of gunslinger Clint, SQUIDS Wild West features six new locations creatively constructed from items that have fallen into the ocean from the human world above. While exploring this aquatic frontier players will meet up with four new playable Squids, including feisty cowgirl Calamary Jane and the mysterious Chief Ronimo. Plus the group will encounter a bevy of new enemies, environmental obstacles, stat-boosting helmets, and wild seahorses that can be captured and ridden into battle.

The colorful cartoon artwork, humorous storytelling, and catchy music fans loved in the original SQUIDS are back in the sequel, along with a number of new features and gameplay improvements. Notably, this Universal App includes iCloud syncing, so players can access saved games and continue the adventure on any iOS device. Other online capabilities include GameCenter leaderboards, achievements, and the ability to post Squid teams on Facebook and Twitter. And user interface enhancements make it easier for players to customize their party, adjust a mission’s difficulty level, and unlock in-game items.

“One of the biggest perks of being an indie studio has been our ability to build a direct relationship with our fans,” says Emeric Thoa, The Game Bakers’ creative director. “We’ve received hundreds of emails from players telling us what they liked and didn’t like about SQUIDS and asking for new features. We have paid close attention to this feedback and even enlisted our biggest fans to beta test SQUIDS Wild West, to make sure we were on the right track. So we’re confident that players will have even more fun with SQUIDS Wild West than the first game.”

SQUIDS Wild West sells for USD $1.99 on the App Store, and is currently only USD $0.99 during a limited-time launch promotion.
