Say howdy to West of Loathing -- 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. Features: a sprawling open world, chock full of danger, quests, puzzles, and mysteries lush hand-drawn black and white graphics full stick-figure customization 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 horseNOTE: characters are not literally colorful (the game is in black and white)

West of Loathing reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
For 1.5 hours Everything is clear: the engraver is simple, but nice, the lyrics are good funny, as the RPG game is primitive, the combat system is quite itself playing, super fast pumping. On Some funny texts the game does not deter, DROPNU

A Rare example of a game that openly declares itself as "ridiculous", and it really remains funny. Attention to detail is impressive, usually in such cases saying that "Made with Love". Very Nice game. Somehow even good on the soul becomes from the realization that such a game exists.

Visually and technically simplified version of South Park-A in the setting of the Wild West (slightly diluted with a sick imagination), similar to lightning-mocking RPG-elements of computer games in the spirit of Manchkin. It is fun and easy to Play. (The Truth is not Russian, and many terms are so distorted that even the translator will not help-only the direct understanding of this or that message in general) I Recommend when there will be an opportunity at exit from a starting location-to turn on Hard mode, Otherwise it will be too simple, straight too =) PS. The Only serious minus personally for me-a lot of a fiction, on Vyviglaznom bright white background.

After a disappointing sequel to the South Park game, I was looking for something like the first part-with a bunch of quests, humor and simple graphics. And accidentally stumbled upon the game West of Loathing. Attracted me to the positive reviews and also VERY uncomplicated design. The Plot of the game is that the boy from a small farm goes to the city to try his luck and earn a living. Pros-Games are extremely rich, while you jump for a cure for one kid, you are already bumping into a new unexplored place, there you take another quest, then on the way more and more... As a result, one passage takes about 10 hours-Humor. I would not say that the game humor is abundant, but it is and quite good. What are the only vile plevalnica and meat instead of money. -Simple and short fights that do not get bored and you are not annoyed by a heap of deaths. The Game gives dynamism. Cons-Perhaps the only, but significant minus-IT's JUST LAYERS of ENGLISH TEXT, with the inglesme everything is fine, but over time you just stop reading the dialogues, and simply answer them with consent. These texts as though replace all visualization, in them it is written down as someone shmybent a nose or sighed, yawned. I understand that the game was made of G * * on and sticks, but the voice-at least it was possible to do. Total: A nice and rich content game that definitely deserves attention. Especially I want to note the Quest magazine, which as it is contained in the head of your partner, you just need to talk to him. Very Clever. 9 out of 10
Favorite Thing: It's a weird game. Must be experienced.
Least Favorite Thing: Bad balancing. For the first half of the game my partner was the only one who could kill anything. In the second half I was overpowered.
