Experimental Gamers have let us know that their cooperative 'Wild West RPG', Boot Hill Heroes, will be arriving on Steam on October 10th. In addition, players will be able to grab a Steam copy for 50% off the normal price for the first week.
"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.
