Corral Countdown 4: Trailer Premiere #1 – The Saints-Little Gang

First things first, despite insisting on a December 1 release date, Boot Hill Bounties will have to be pushed back to December 15. The game is currently stuck in the approval process on Steam. Usually this takes a few days, but Steam is experiencing a high volume of submissions. This is my fault for taking too long getting the storefront assets together and submitting the game so late.

This might be a good thing since it gives me more time to submit the game to review sites and build more hype for the game – things I haven’t spent as much time on as I would have liked. For those who were expecting the game December 1, I apologize for not delivering.

Now the good news. We finally have a trailer for Boot Hill Bounties!

The focus of the trailer is, of course, on the Saints-Little Gang, the titular “bounties” of Boot Hill Bounties. This is a game that focuses heavily on the villains and I often refer to them as the five “robot masters” (you may pick up on the Mega Man vibe in the trailer).

Let me know what you think. I may also make a more traditional trailer later on, but I actually had the idea for this trailer since Boot Hill Heroes over five years ago. Great to see it finally realized.

Here we are at the final Hat Tuesday in the Corral Countdown. And following the order we’ve been revealing these hats, we end with one last hat to show off for Doc. But as always, I leave the mystery of this hat behind suspicious spoiler tags. Click on if you feel so bold…

Hat Spoilers! Click to Reveal!

This head mirror is one of the physician’s oldest tools. It’s a mirror worn on the head that can be shifted to cover the eye so that light reflects off the mirror, along the sight of the doctor, and on to the patient. Doctors back then really had to be creative didn’t they? So what Vantages does Doc’s head mirror grant him?

    • Bandage

– Heals HP of a teammate

    • Smelling Salts

– Revives an incapacitated teammate

    • Morphine

– Provides a teammate a stance that ignores the effects of wounds

    • Surgery

– Removes a wound from an incapacitated teammate

As you could have guessed, all of Doc’s head mirror vantages are related to healing or boosting other teammates, turning the hardened bounty hunter into the team healer. In fact, almost none of the Vantages associated with the head mirror actually cause damage. So this is hat is definitely worn by someone in a supporting role.

So that’s all the hats I plan to reveal in Boot Hill Bounties. There are still many that are in the game I didn’t even get to bring up here. You’ll have to play the game to find out what’s missing.

Corral Countdown 6: Steam Achievements

Steam Achievements are special rewards for completing various game objectives, and Boot Hill Bounties has got 52 of them. Why 52? Because that’s how many cards are in a standard deck of playing cards (minus jokers).

Playing cards are the motif for achievements in Boot Hill Bounties with a each suit representing a type of achievement.

Clubs – Club achievements are found when you accomplish difficult challenges, like completing every Rusty Challenge or collecting every treasure in the game.

Simply finishing the main quest should earn a player half the achievements, while most players will probably get a few more. But only the most tenacious players will get all 52 achievements. Good luck!

Later this week, we’ll talk about another kind of achievement checklist. And this one is much harder, but with a much bigger reward…

Corral Countdown 7: Mystery Eggs

One of my favorite things about video games are the mysteries left unsolved sometimes. Before Game Theory was making a dozen videos theorizing about the hidden lore of Five Nights of Freddy’s I was theorizing about the hidden meanings in Silent Hill 2.

So I wanted to make sure there were a lot of interesting mysteries teased in Boot Hill Bounties as well. Sometimes you can say more with a mystery than by explicitly explaining something.

And while the main story is pretty straight forward, there are tons of hidden mysteries that the most observant player may pick up on.

I also love Easter Eggs in games. One thing I am most proud of in Boot Hill Bounties is how every detail in the game is packed with world-building lore that adds that much more personality to Bronco County. Easter Eggs are more subtle and often hidden details that most players will miss.

Sometimes the Easter Eggs and Mysteries blend together, and so I call them “Mystery Eggs.” Unfortunately, I can’t talk about any Mystery Eggs here, lest they unbecome mysterious and easter egg-y.

But I do want players to know that if you like stumbling across such things in games, then you will be delighted with what you find in Boot Hill Bounties. I hope some of the Mystery Eggs in the game will spark at least a few spicy speculations on online forums.
