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.
