award 2014 Boot Hill Heroes Ranked Among 2014’s Most Overlooked Games by RPGamer

RPGamer did its annual “Best Of” Editor’s Choice Awards for 2014, with such categories as best console game, best battle system, and best story.

Boot Hill Heroes actually won third place in the humble category of “Most Overlooked of 2014” after Divinity: Original Sin and Unrest.

Thank you RPGamer for giving Boot Hill Heroes some recognition and bringing it to the attention of those who may not have heard of it. Marketing an indie game is a tough business. Just making a game is only half the struggle.

But if you are reading this, then you are one of the awesome people who did not overlook Boot Hill Heroes. Thank you for not overlooking this often overlooked game! You are what keeps Experimental Gamer going and makes this all worthwhile.

I think everyone should take a moment and give a plug to their favorite overlooked game. Not Boot Hill Heroes, but another indie game in your Steam library that you feel deserves some recognition. I’ll be doing this on Twitter so follow me @BootHillHeroes to hear some recommendations. Tweet me some suggestions or leave them in the comments below and I’ll check them out.

As for Boot Hill Heroes, will it remain an overlooked underdog among RPGs? Or will the upcoming premiere of Boot Hill Heroes 2 shine a spotlight on this series?

Boot Hill Heroes Nominated for Best Indie RPG of 2014

It was a nice surprise to learn that Boot Hill Heroes was nominated by MMORPG.com as a contender for best indie RPG of 2014 in their Players Choice 2015 awards.

And while I don’t think the game has much chance of winning in a category also containing games like “Divinity: Original Sin,” “The Banner Saga,” and “Transistor,” it is still great to be recognized for all the hard work put into the game and very inspiring to make Boot Hill Heroes 2 give other indie RPGs a run for their money in 2015.

You can and should vote for your favorite RPGs of 2014 at MMORPG. Voting ends this week:

MMPRPG.com reviewed Boot Hill Heroes and gave it an 8/10

Boot Hill Heroes DLC “The Hangman’s Ballad” Comes to Steam February 27

Published on: January 9, 2015

“The Hangman’s Ballad” is a side-story post-game adventure for Boot Hill Heroes. This content adds about 3 more hours to the 10-15 hour game length (not including the excruciatingly difficult final boss who may require much more time to defeat). “The Hangman’s Ballad” contains several new enemies and boss encounters along with new materials, weapons, and armor to collect.

The Hangman’s Ballad is discounted at 100% for the first week of release and will be $.99 afterwards. So don’t forget to download it that first week and save nearly a buck. Download the DLC and make sure your Boot Hill Heroes game is up-to-date and you should be good to go.

The story of “The Hangman’s Ballad” is unlocked post-game (save file must be after the end credit sequence). Cross the bridge in Kickstart Creek and our heroes will be asked to investigate a Chepakwik Indian raid on a wagon train at Crazy Bone Pass. Moon Dancer is determined to get to the bottom of this unwarranted assault, but when she finds that her own brother, First Winter, is behind the attack, she finds herself torn between the desire to defend her family while maintaining the peace.

Boot Hill Heroes is now available on Xbox Live Indie Games. If you still have your Xbox 360, browse on over to the marketplace and find it in the indies section.

What’s great about this version of Boot Hill Heroes? Well, you get to play it in the comfort of your living room. Also, you’ll be playing it on your big screen television. But, most importantly, it’s much easier to get some controllers together so you can go on a Wild West adventure with friends!

Take advantage of the local co-op. And remember that good teamwork is the key to winning! Good luck!

XBLIG Boot Hill Heroes Releasing on Xbox Live Indie Games December 5

In the middle of the triple A game release season, a little Wild West RPG will finally arrive on the Xbox Live Indie Games marketplace. So if you haven’t traded in your Xbox 360 for an Xbox One, be sure to check out Boot Hill Heroes.

Why might you care about Boot Hill Heroes on your Xbox when you can get it on PC? Well, consider multiplayer co-op! I’m sure players will have an easier time getting Xbox 360 controllers together and playing it on their big screen televisions. Even if you’ve already played the game before alone, why not revisit Bronco County and go on this adventure with a group of friends?

Boot Hill Heroes was originally released on PC and PlayStation Mobile in April, then hit Steam back in October. I’m happy to bring the game to this last planned platform for release!

There are a couple bugs in the first version that I hope to get patched as soon as possible, but I cannot until the game is first released at this point. The only one I’m worried about is if you try to save your game in trial mode, the cut scene will hang. Sorry about that!
