Many RPGs have been recently funded via Kickstarter. The overwhelming majority of them, however, has a fantasy theme; none is set in the good ol' Wild West.
Hard West from developer Creative Forge Games and publisher Gambitious Entertainment gives you this opportunity. Here's the official description of the game:
Welcome to the Wild West like you’ve never seen it before. When a tragic turn of events sets one man down a path of supernatural chaos and revenge, he must brutally hunt down all those whom wronged him. Follow Warren on his descent into the darkest recesses of the human soul, and try to survive in a world full of hard choices and even harder consequences. Because in this world, death is a constant presence and the black pacts which you make with forces beyond human comprehension will forever haunt all those around you.
Fight and survive through 8 unique story-based scenarios, and try your hand at more than 40 individually designed turn-based combat missions. Journey deeper into the world of Hard West and meet a colorful cast of playable characters whose fates are intimately intertwined with yours. Together you will need to make divisive choices to uncover the ultimate plans of the ancient powers at play, as you unravel a deep narrative storyline featuring multiple endings depending on the choices you make during the game.
According to the press release, while the following gameplay video shows an action-oriented approach, there are multiple strategies available to push through a level.
Hard West is currently aiming for a Fall release on PC; in terms of content, it will launch with 8 "unique story-based scenarios" and 40 "individually designed turn-based combat missions".
