is a PC game that features the turn-based combat of XCOM with an overworld map reminiscent of Heroes of Might and Magic and a Weird West setting seldom explored in video games.

In this game you get to the Wild Hard West like you’ve never seen it before. When a tragic turn of events sets one man down a path of supernatural chaos and revenge, he must brutally hunts down all those whom wronged him.

You follow Warren on his descent into the darkest recesses of the human soul, and try to survive in a world full of hard choices and even harder consequences. Because in this world, death is a constant presence and the black pacts which you make with forces beyond human comprehension will forever haunt all those around you.

You have to fight and survive through 8 unique story-based scenarios, and try your hand at more than 40 individually designed turn-based combat missions. The combat is fast. The whole combat encounter takes no more than 5-10 minutes. It’s short, bloody, and decisive. There’s little randomization: you either make good predictions and good decisions to land a kill, or you die. There’s no victory without risk, but it’s a well calculated risk. 

On the journey deeper into the world of Hard West, you meet a colorful cast of playable Characters whose fates are intimately intertwined with yours.

Together you will need to make divisive choices to uncover the ultimate plans of the ancient powers at play, as you unravel a deep narrative storyline featuring multiple endings depending on the choices you make during the game.

Whole gameplay includes different styles of play, including bullet curving, ricocheting bullets off surroundings. You'll also want to be careful with the Sun and shadows which can both help and hurt you, depending on how aware you are. You'll find that throughout Hard West gameplay can be completely different on the style you use.
