Asymmetric has announced that its slapstick comedy adventure RPG West of Loathing is coming to Nintendo Switch in Spring 2018 as a console exclusive.
Inspired by the humor, whimsy, and storytelling of classic adventure/RPGs Quest for Glory and Paper Mario, West of Loathing is a single player role-playing game set in a slapstick stick figure rendition of the wild frontier. Leave your family farm and head west to find your fortune in this huge, humorous adventure brimming with branching storylines, tactical turn-based combat, and big hats.
- A sprawling open world:
Traverse snake-infested gulches, punch skeletons wearing cowboy hats, grapple with demon cows, and investigate a wide variety of disgusting spittoons — nearly 100 unique locations to explore!
- A goofy spin on good ol’ RPG gameplay:
Charm your way out of trouble as a silver-tongued Snake Oiler, plumb the refried mysteries of the cosmos as a wise and subtle Beanslinger, or let
- your fists do the talking as a fierce Cow Puncher.
- A “colorful” cast of stick-figure characters:
Interact with dozens of NPCs and hundreds of enemies — some of whom are good, many of whom are bad, and a few of whom are ugly.
- A gag around every corner:
Wordplay and dad jokes abound — along with several gulches, at least one drunken horse, and liberal use of the Oxford comma.
