Hard West gritting teeth for an autumn launch

Supernatural western Hard West is moseying towards an autumn launch.

Hard West is a Kickstarted turn-based tactical game in a Weird West setting, where gunslingers face off against spirits, demons, and blood sacrifice. Guns kill in one or two hits, so using cover (and showing off via ricocheting bullets) is key to your continued survival in this brutal setting.

Hard West raised $94,183 CAD when it hit Kickstarter, which netted it a trio of stretch goals – Steam Early Access, Mac and Linux versions, and another eight scenarios that prolong the game buy a couple of hours. And yes, I backed it.

The Kickstarter reckoned the game would be out in August 2015, so the newly announced launch window of “autumn 2015” is actually surprisingly close.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
