Hard West is XCOM-style strategy with cowboys

New, 14 comments

Hard West makes no bones about its inspiration. This is a top-down turn-based tactical game which offers gameplay challenges akin to Firaxis' Earth invasion game XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

Set in the Wild West, players guide a squad of gunsllngers against gangs of desperados, taking care to make the best use of movement, cover, flanking position and line of fire. There's also a strategic overmap that allows exploration of the world, story and accrual of skill cards, characters and an in-game currency of luck which is spent and replenished during gunfights.

Hard West from Warsaw-based CreativeForge Games is due out this fall on Linux, Mac and Windows PC.
