Stick ‘em up! West of Loathing now available for Switch, Limited Run Games physical version announced

Today, Asymmetric announced that the Switch version of the humorous RPG West of loathing is available today on the Nintendo Switch’s eShop, with a physical version of the game to be published at a later date by Limited Run Games.

Go west to find your fortune in this huge, humorous adventure/RPG inspired by classics like Quest for Glory and Paper Mario. Don’t let the stick figures fool you! Brimming with branching storylines, tactical turn-based combat, and big hats, West of Loathing is 100% guaranteed to deliver:

  • 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.

Prefer a game you can hold in your hands and store on your shelf? Asymmetric is teaming up with Limited Run Games to create a limited edition cartridge version of West of Loathing for Nintendo Switch.
