As reported in my Nindies Showcase summary, West of Loathing was one of the titles I featured in this article. With a release date yet to be announced and also being very vague about it being released in the spring, I am pleased to spread the news! West of Loathing from Asymmetric will be released on May 31!
Already very popular released on Steam, the launch of this unusual and funny looking RPG caught my interest. It will be out on May 31 as a digital download.
Take a look at the overview via Asymmetric:
West of Loathing is a single-player slapstick comedy adventure role-playing game set in the wild west of the Kingdom of Loathing universe. Traverse snake-infested gulches, punch skeletons wearing cowboy hats, grapple with demon cows, and investigate a wide variety of disgusting spittoons.
Talk your way out of trouble as a silver-tongued Snake Oiler, plumb the refried mysteries of the cosmos as a wise and subtle Beanslinger, or let your fists do the talking as a fierce Cow Puncher. Explore a vast open world and encounter a colorful cast of characters, some of whom are good, many of whom are bad, and a few of whom are ugly.
– A sprawling open world, chock full of danger, quests, puzzles, and mysteries
– Lush hand-drawn black and white graphics
– Thousands of jokes, gags, and goofs
– Crunchy turn-based combat (but only if you want it)
– Liberal use of the Oxford comma
– Over 50 hats
– Disreputable saloons
– Several gulches
– A drunk horse
