"West of Loathing" comedy RPG gallops onto Steam today (Windows, Mac, Linux)

From the creators of the long-running cult MMORPG The Kingdom of Loathing, West of Loathing is a single-player, story-heavy, funny as hell adventure/role-playing game that answers the burning question: "What would Skyrim be like if you played as a bean-slinging stick figure in a ten gallon hat?" 


It would be exactly like this, my friends:





Price: $11 USD with a 10% launch discount through August 17 (sale price is $9.89)




About West of Loathing

Leave your family farm and head west to find your fortune in a huge, humorous game inspired by classics adventure/RPGs Quest for Glory and Paper Mario. West of Loathing features:


  • A sprawling open world: Traverse snake-infested gulches, punch skeletons wearing cowboy hats, grapple with demon cows, and investigate a wide variety of disgusting spittoons -- nearly 100 unique locations to explore!

  • A goofy spin on good ol' RPG gameplay: Charm 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.

  • A "colorful" cast of stick-figure characters: Interact with dozens of NPCs and hundreds of enemies -- some of whom are good, many of whom are bad, and a few of whom are ugly.

  • A gag around every corner: Wordplay and dad jokes abound -- along with at least one drunken horse, more than 50 hats, and liberal use of the Oxford comma.
