Farmers Branch, Texas – Magnin & Associates today introduces Texas Wildcatter Experience 1.1, their new game for iOS, Android, Apple TV, Windows PC, and Xbox. Texas Wildcatter Experience lets you enjoy the thrill of prospecting or oil right on your phone, TV or game console.
Choose where to setup your first drilling rig. Press Play button to start, and x1, x2 or x3 to speed up the time. When a problem occurs randomly an onscreen message will explain the problem and if possible the cost is to fix it,.
When you hit oil, your drill rig will be replaced with a pump. You can then move the drill rig to a new location. Should you give up or hit a dry well, you can move the drill rig or shutdown, which will let you use it again later on.
You start with one drill rig, later you can rent additional drill rigs.
Each “day” you are accumulating drill rig rentals and crew labor costs. If you realize you have a dry well, consider moving the drill rig or shutting it down, which will stop the equipment rental and crew charges.
Five progressively more difficult levels should challenge all ages. Oil locations are randomly generated, so it’s a different game each time you play.
When you try to place a drill in a new area, it will let you decide whether your want to acquire a lease to drill in that new area.
You can also decide whether to pay for a geological survey with a map showing the most likely spots to find oil. You can return to view the map at any time.
Optionally shares your accomplishments with social media, email, or instant messaging.

The game was produced by Ed Magnin, programmed and level design by Willie Johnson, Jr, art and 3d models by Ryan Thomas, playtested by David Hayes. Matt Campana created the music and audio effects. According to Ed Magnin, “Since Texas is known for oil and is, in fact, the world’s third largest oil producing region, we thought it was only natural for a Texas-based company to create a game to let you try your hand at oil prospecting.”
