Westerado

Created by: Ostrich Banditos

“When a dastardly bandit kills your family, you saddle up with your six-shooters to bring the murderer to justice. There’s a new mystery to solve every time you play.”

Westerado is an action adventure detective western, with a focus on narrative, great music and fine-tuned pixels. The game has many paths for the cowboy to ride down, and stories to explore; rewarding the player on multiple playthroughs as he searches for the murderer.

Motivatie: -- Gameplay --
Westerado's play experience molds to the player, allowing them to follow every strand of plot, freely explore the town-speckled desert, or just down right shoot your way to the murderer.

The many residents of the desert will try to play you off against eachother, and each of your actions will change how people see you and your course through the world creating a dynamic experience.

Pull out your gun to threaten people during conversations, hunt down buffalo with some mangy-eyed bandits or help the indians get their sacred land back; all this and more is waiting for player's in Westerado's desert.

-- Art --
Westerado uses the pixel aesthetic in a unique way, recognising the hot, harsh and dangerous situations of the Wild West and reinvigorating them in the gorgeously rough pixels.

-- Music -- Sam van Lonkhuyzen's wonderful live soundtrack ties the package together, flashing both game nostalgia and creating resonating western themes that are endlessly listenable.
