Boot Hill Heroes
October 1, 2014 - DapperDave

Steam Features:

The Steam edition of Boot Hill Heroes makes use of Steam’s unique set of achievements and extras, including a surprising 52 Achievements to unlock (each based on a specific playing card), 6 Badges to earn, 6 Trading Cards to collect as well as Profile Backgrounds, Emoticons, a Community Page and more!

Game Summary:

"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. With an intriguing story and excellent music by Jake ' virt' Kaufman ("Shovel Knight"), it's an adventure well worth experiencing.

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 and no one is waiting for a turn. The menu system is designed so that four players can simultaneously manage their characters' equipment and abilities without pausing the game.

Game Origin:

Boot Hill Heroes was successfully Kickstarted in May of 2012 and has endured an underestimated development time that saw the saga split into a three game trilogy – this first arriving October 10 on Steam with the next out in 2015. Boot Hill Heroes is already available on PlayStation Mobile, PC and will be coming to Xbox Live Indie Games soon.

After 75 titles were approved on June 11, Boot Hill Heroes has moved from 94% of the way to the Top 100, to number 65 in the Top 100. What does this mean? How soon will Boot Hill Heroes be on Steam?

It means that if Steam’s Greenlight inductions remain consistent, then at the end of June, Steam will Greenlight another 75 games and Boot Hill Heroes will be among them.

But there are two important “ifs” here. First, Steam has to remain consistent with their Greenlighting and, more importantly, Boot Hill Heroes cannot slip out of the top 75. At the rate in which games with glorious production values are submitted to Greenlight, it’s a real danger for such games to soar past Boot Hill Heroes and send it down a rung on this Greenlight ladder.

But here’s where you come in: In order to remain in the top 75, Boot Hill Heroes needs votes like it never needed votes before.

If you are reading this, then you’ve surely voted – but have you asked your fellow friends and gamers to vote? Have you spread word about this game on forums, boards, and social media? This little indie game needs to find its way to the small niche of gamers who would really appreciate it. And there’s only so much I can do to see that they find it.

You’ve all helped so much in getting Boot Hill Heroes this far, now we need just one final push to finally get this game out. This isn’t just one developer making an indie game, it is a community of fans who want to see games like this succeed despite an influx of triple A titles with marketing powerhouses.

We’re very close! Thanks to all of you for getting us here!

Hey guys! I really should have promoted this sooner but we've been having a blast on 1nutw0nder's Boot Hill Heroes livestream[www.twitch.tv] events.

This is a Twitch TV livestream where 1nut plays Boot Hill Heroes live and us viewers can chat about the proceedings. I've been watching along as well and letting loose with some INCREDIBLY INTERESTING (to me) facts about the game's development - oh, and some free copies of the game as well.

So join us this week on Tuesday and Thursday at 9 Eastern for the show.[www.twitch.tv]. There's already been two episodes already so we're maybe halfway through the game (6 or 7 hours into it). But these videos will be on Youtube sooner or later so you can catch up.

One more time, 1nutw0nder's Twitch TV[www.twitch.tv] show this Tuesday and Thursday at 9 Eastern to check out the game and maybe win a free copy of Boot Hill Heroes.

As we approach the top 100 at a snail’s pace, I want to point out that if you’re tired of waiting for this game to appear on Steam, you can in fact buy it now on our website[www.experimentalgamer.com].

Thanks to the Humble Widget, I’m able to distribute the game on the Experimental Gamer website[www.experimentalgamer.com].

So if you have some free time this weekend, what better way to spend it?
