Westerns get a pretty bum rap when it comes to gaming. While there are some classics, games set in the Old West are usually few and far between. At least we’re getting some rain to ease the drought next month, as Hard West will be arriving on Steam on November 4.
Funded via Kickstarter, it features a Weird West setting complete with ghosts, demons, and a ton of gore. It may not be the Wild West that most of us know, but how can you complain after looking at those beautiful cel shaded visuals?
Welcome to the Wild West like you’ve never seen it before. When a tragic turn of events sets one man down a path of supernatural chaos and revenge, he must brutally hunt down all those whom wronged him. Follow Warren on his descent into the darkest recesses of the human soul, and try to survive in a world full of hard choices and even harder consequences. Because in this world death is a constant presence, and the black pacts which you make with forces beyond human comprehension will forever haunt all those around you.
Fight and survive through 8 unique story-based scenarios, and try your hand at more than 40 individually designed turn-based combat missions. Journey deeper into the world of Hard West, and meet a colourful cast of playable characters whose fates are intimately intertwined with yours. Together you will need to make divisive choices to uncover the ultimate plans of the ancient powers at play, as you unravel a deep narrative storyline featuring multiple endings depending on the choices you make during the game.
