So, Just What is Boot Hill Heroes?
Take one part Final Fantasy, one part Earthbound, add a dash of Chrono Trigger - then dip the whole thing in spicy Wild West sauce! Boot Hill Heroes is a true retro RPG set in the American Wild West. You’ll find all the trappings of a spaghetti western – gunslingers, saloons, Indians, ranches, spittoons, Mexican standoffs, heroism, villainy, and everything in between. Boot Hill Heroes has adventure, drama, and a fair helping of humor. It’s just like the classic RPGs you remember from yesteryear but with an inventive new spin!
Say what? A Four-Player coop turn-based RPG? That sounds like crazy talk.
Not really. The game has four characters, so we thought – Why not make it four players? Up to four players can drop-in or out at any time. We’ve even designed a menu system that allows all four players to simultaneously manage their characters’ equipment and abilities. Check out the video for more info on this.
