West of Loathing comedy RPG now on Steam Greenlight (Video)
Asymmetric is unveiling West of Loathing, a laugh-out-loud adventure RPG coming to Windows, Mac, Linux, and iOS in 2017. The game’s up on Steam Greenlight, take a gander.
Go West, young stick figure!
West of Loathing is a sprawling, stick figure role-playing game set in the Wild West. It’s kind of like Skyrim, but with big hats and canned beans instead of glass armor and cheese wheels.
Choose from three character classes: Cow Puncher, Beanslinger, or Snake Oiler. Explore perilous gulches, skeleton-riddled cemeteries, mysterious abandoned mines, and disreputable saloons. Plumb the ruins of ancient civilizations for riches, deliver justice to unscrupulous and sarcastic bandits, and negotiate complex bureaucracies in cursed ghost towns full of cursed ghost accountants. And watch your back, because danger and dumb jokes lurk around every corner.
