EDIT: I decided to continue the development of this game! I will make a new game based on this prototype. It will be way bigger and a complete, commercial game. I also have a new name for this upcoming game. It will be called "Colt Canyon"! Stay tuned. (Follow me on Twitter to stay updated)

America, 1869
Your girl was kidnapped by bandits, now it's on you to save her.
Use your old revolver and shoot your way through the wild west.

WASD - Move
Mouse - Aim and Shoot
R - Reload
E - Interact or destroy destructible objects
M - Mute Sounds


This game prototype was made for an assignment in Game Design at the Cologne Game Lab.

Enjoy


Fun Facts:

It's a prototype and has no options menu, but there is a settings.ini located
in %localappdata%/Help_Retrific where you can toggle fullscreen, change graphical quality and even rebind your keys if you know which codes to use.

Since it's a just 4 fun prototype you also have the option to just have fun:
There are some cheats that I used for debugging still in the game. Toggle them with F1-F6 ;) In 1.0.2 F7 and F8 works too, to spawn enemies and barrels

Hello. My name is Jamon Tolbert, and I am a film and video game composer. I am a big fan of your game, and I wanted to know if you would be open to me composing music for the game, free of charge. I think that my style would fit very well with the visuals. Let me know if you are interested, and I can send you some examples of my work. Thanks.

Please contact me via mail to contact@retrific.net and include your examples. Thank you :)

Really like how cool and simple of a western game this is! Wasn't able to beat it but it was really interesting trying to be tactical and be wary of how much bullets you both get and use. Keep on making games~!

Awesome Video! Had much fun watching it and some of your feedback was taken into account for the last updates.

Played it (multiple times) and made a video. I hope you'll get to expand it because it's a quite polished prototype. It would be great if you could get something from dead enemies. Probably bullets since health is... unrealistic.
