We often talk about how the classic console RPGs of the 90s (Final Fantasy, Earthbound, Chrono Trigger, etc.) impacted us, created treasured memories, and formed us as gamers. "Boot Hill Heroes" is made by lifelong game fans who grew up influenced by games of that era who want to bring back those lasting experiences while revitalizing the genre with a new spin.

"Boot Hill Heroes" fuses elements of spaghetti western film -- like gunslinging outlaws, brave lawmen, and the untamed wilderness -- with classic fantasy storytelling of good versus evil and order versus chaos. It's an experimental combination of ideas intended to bring a new and unique experience to gamers.

The game features a team of four characters -- Kid, Doc, Moon, and Rosy. A single player can control the entire party, or friends can seamlessly drop-in and take control of a character. Combat is crafted around a fast-paced, real-time strategy system where all players remain engaged in battle. The menu system is designed so that four players can simultaneously manage their characters' equipment and abilities without pausing the game.

On this adventure, players can find and equip various "job hats" that not only change the look of their characters but also allow them to learn new abilities associated with that job. A "Stetson" teaches special pistol attacks while an "Indian Headdress" reveals magical support dances. Players can then customize their characters by choosing which of these abilities they want to have equipped and build a character that matches their style of playing.

"...an interesting battle mechanic twist that feels refreshing, especially in multiplayer, as it makes battles much more involving."
- Johnathan Stringer, RPGamer[www.rpgamer.com]


After an alleged attack by the Chepakwik Indians, the people of Bronco County are on the brink of war. Only a farm boy who knows the truth can stop it. Together with his three friends - a gunslinging desperado, an Indian princess, and a calamity jane - he must expose a conspiracy by bringing to justice the six outlaws of the notorious Saints-Little gang.

Their journey will take them through cowtowns, Indian villages, ranches, gold mines, prisons, and into the very heart and soul of the American Wild West. But on their epic adventure to right the wrongs of the past, will they see justice done or discover an even darker secret lying in wait behind the scenes?

"...what really impresses me comes from the battle system. Fully integrated with the heretofore mentioned mechanics, battles require reflex, strategy, and knowing what you're doing."
- Zachery Oliver, Theology Gaming[theologygaming.com]

@iDisOrder interesting comment from someone who has barely a dozen non-free games on steam, including Professional Farmer 2014. Have you ever in your life felt like you were being ignored by everyone? I imagine so...

@mistermoomoo There are a lot of elements from those games. Hopefully the Steam version will be out soon, but you can also buy this game from the Experimental Gamer website now.

Getting a heavy Earthbound/Mother 3 vibe. Was any inspiration taken from those games. I'm super psyched for this by the way. Is there a way to pre order on steam?

Btw... anyone think of modding this? I know it's a late idea, and has no hope of catching on, still, twas just a thought.
