Slapstick Comedy Adventure RPG West of Loathing Coming To Nintendo Switch

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.

Features:

  • 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.
