    Tags: Asymmetric; West of Loathing

    West of Loathing, the greatly overlooked and underappreciated 2017 stick figure western parody RPG that for some reason has never been posted about on the front page because Infinitron is too busy with Obsidian's updates about updates about kickstarter updates, has just been upgraded with DLC. Reckonin' at Gun Manor is a short new adventure that will take you through a spooky haunted house.

    A ghostly carriage arrives in Dirtwater. Only you can see it, and it only goes one place -- the mysterious Gun Manor.

    A brand new West of Loathing adventure, full of all the things you've come to expect from the Loathing brand:
    • A few more hours of that sweet, sweet gameplay
    • Fiendish new monsters
    • Useful new items
    • Challenging puzzles (which are also new)
    • Scads of new goofs and gags
    • No new gulches (sorry, we're all gulched out)
    Who can solve the mystery of Gun Manor? Is it you? It's probably you.​

    You can pick it up on Steam for a grand total of 17.99 PLN (or something around $5 if you use imaginary money), and if you liked the base game, then you probably should.

    I have been waiting for more stuff for this awesomesauce game for SO LONG... Instant purchase for me, even if I can't play Steam games right now. The game is worth it.

    WoL is the shit. Looking at the screenshots, I was a bit hesitant to buy the game, as I thought I'd be in for a shitty mobile game designed for five year olds. However, after seeing all the praise here on the Codex I decided to give it a try, and I'm damn glad I did. It's highly original and really damn fun to play. I'm no doubt giving money to the dev for this DLC, as I enjoyed WoL more than a lot of triple A bullshit with insanely bigger budgets.

    Cmon, you could've at least given a link to the game in the newspost.

    That said, the game looks interesting.

    Check it out. I'd love to see if you're as surprised as me at how good it is.

    For a Skaven cultist, you do a very good job, Darth Roxor.

    Still have to check it out. I disregarded the main game since I was so upset they went for a wild West setting over the awesome Kingdom of loathing. I want my Sealclubbers, Turtletamers and Sauceomancy back :negative:

    But maybe it is time to buy the hatchet

    I hope this becomes more of a thing. Haven't played West of Loathing yet ( :negative:) but it seems like my kind of game. I really want them to keep making games like these- especially if they stick with the wild west motiff.

    I played WoL twice at this point, once on my own and once with a friend (coach co-op) and it's a pretty fun game, definitely in spirit of KoL. Lots of laughs were had. Gonna get the addon for sure, thanks Rox

    But you get Beanslinging and Nex-Mex instead. Two for one!
