Wanted Dead, Not Alive - Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West Prove a Success
Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West, the team based third person shooter, was released via Steam on April 8, 2010. In celebration of its launch, the development team at Fatshark developed two promotions to share with the Lead and Gold community, “Kill the Fatshark” and “The Fastest Gun on Steam.”
After a full week of competition, Paradox Interactive reported that roughly 1.5% of the community have managed to kill a “Fatshark” and unlocked this unique achievement. While the one week promotion has ended, players are encouraged to keep their eyes open for any future Fatshark sightings and claim their respected bragging rights.
“I’ve never had so much fun being killed,” said Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark. “We are glad to see so many players participating.”
Steam player “Trenk” is wanted dead or alive. Currently the #1 player on the leaderboards, “Trenk” is the fastest gun on Steam. Each week, the highest scorer on Steam’s avatar is placed in a “Wanted” poster located on the wall in one of the maps. If Trenk maintains his/her #1 position, Fatshark will up his/her bounty.
“The Steam release has not only been a great success, but the promotions have added a whole new level of excitement. We are looking forward to the upcoming PlayStation release” said Mattias Lilja, Producer at Paradox Interactive.
