Experimental Gamer’s co-op Wild West RPG is finally arriving on Steam on October 10. The title will arrive at a 50% discount to celebrate the launch of the game that will last for one week only!
The Steam edition of Boot Hill Heroes makes use of Steam’s unique set of achievements and extras, including a surprising 52 Achievements to unlock (each based on a specific playing card), 6 Badges to earn, 6 Trading Cards to collect as well as Profile Backgrounds, Emoticons, a Community Page and more!
“Boot Hill Heroes” fuses elements of spaghetti western film — like gunslinging outlaws, brave lawmen, and the untamed wilderness — with classic fantasy storytelling of good versus evil and order versus chaos. It’s an experimental combination of ideas intended to bring a new and unique experience to gamers. With an intriguing story and excellent music by Jake ‘ virt’ Kaufman (“Shovel Knight”), it’s an adventure well worth experiencing.
The game features a team of four characters — Kid, Doc, Moon, and Rosy. A single player can control the entire party, or friends can seamlessly drop-in and take control of a character. Combat is crafted around a fast-paced, real-time strategy system where all players remain engaged in battle and no one is waiting for a turn. The menu system is designed so that four players can simultaneously manage their characters’ equipment and abilities without pausing the game.
Boot Hill Heroes was successfully Kickstarted in May of 2012 and has endured an underestimated development time that saw the saga split into a three game trilogy – this first arriving October 10 on Steam with the next out in 2015. Boot Hill Heroes is already available on PlayStation Mobile, PC and will be coming to Xbox Live Indie Games soon.
