As far as elevator pitches go, being asked by an aspiring young dev team -- if we were the money-crunchers who also just loved 'out there' ideas or, you know, were Devolver Digital -- "what if it was like Monkey Magic -- you know, The Journey to the West story. But we embraced the 'West' and added cowboys!?!?".
We'd have to reply pretty quickly, and wide-eyed "yes! Make it so!!". (I mean, cowboys are still so hot right now.)
That's Weird West in as basic a nutshell as needed, and this OP is proof of the craziness a lockdown can bring to your sensibilities.
But seriously, after watching this trailer and ingesting that concept, we're pretty well on board with this unique game, but don't just take our word for it, here's some official scripture from a drunk-on-whiskey-Buddha:
Developer WolfEye Studios and publisher Devolver Digital have announced that Weird West, their upcoming action RPG experience set within a surreal vision of the developing frontier, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One alongside PC in [Spring AU] 2021. To coincide with the news, the peculiar posse have released a brand new gameplay trailer, unveiling the mysteries of Weird West through the intertwined destinies of its unusual heroes. These are the Five Journeys.
Discover a dark fantasy reimagining of the Wild West where lawmen and gunslingers share the frontier with fantastical creatures. Journey through the origin stories of a group of atypical heroes, written into legend by the decisions you make in an unforgiving land. Each journey is unique and tailored to the actions taken - a series of high stakes stories where everything counts and the world reacts to the choices you make. Form a posse or venture forth alone into the otherworldly confines of the Weird West and make each legend your own.
Watch a newly-released gameplay trailer for the game embedded below. And stay tuned for more from us as whispers of the game's journey makes their way to our saloon.
