About Cowbots and Aliens

Cowbots and Aliens is a PVP multiplayer game set in an old fashioned saloon, where you can brawl in the classic cowboys versus aliens rivalry. They’ve taken a wild west shootout and turned it into free for all bar fight. Use anything in sight to take down your opponent. Break a chair on their head, stab a foe with the end of a broken beer bottle, or go the classic route and unload your six shooter on them. You’ll forget you’re not really in the saloon while you are fully immersed in this thrilling game.

History of Cowbots and ALiens

Wizard Games Inc. is comprised of two former Intel engineers turned game developers, and two veteran artists who have worked on many projects for the likes of Disney and Hanna-Barbera.
