In November, former Arkane creative director Raphael Colantonio and former Arkane executive producer Julien Roby announced that they'd rejoined forces to found a new indie developer called WolfeEye Studios, whose first game would be revealed at The Game Awards...tonight, as promised, it happened

Weird West is a dark fantasy reimagining of the Wild West, where gunslingers mix with wild creatures of nightmare...each game will follow a unique path based on player decisions: "Everything counts and the world reacts to the choices you make...form a posse or venture forth alone into an otherworldly confines of the Weird West and make each legend your own."...

Seems neat/different. At first I wasn't feeling the perspective, but it seems like you can control the camera so it isn't straight above Gauntlet-style.

I do recommend waiting for a few patches before buyjng. Companions are very buggy and the same 3 or 4 level designs are reused constantly across the map. But yes it's a fun and deep game so far.

I am hoping they vary the levels more so there's less repetition. And greatly improve the AI of the companions.

My .02 after fina8hing the first main chapter is to wait for more patches and for a sale. $20 is more reasonable given some glaring issues.

I picked this up at CD keys see how it goes on the weekend. It looks better than Hard West 2 and Evil West isn't here
and not as long a RDR 2.

This game is pretty Epic the controls are really nice anyway you can zoom in playing with an X-Box controller.

I like this game better than RDR the unlocks make it fun upgrades and secrets you can Steal Horses. I'm playing with a controller I wouldn't want to use a keyboard for this game because the action is fast at times. Totally recommend this game I might look up at picking Hard West 2 but I don't think it has controller support. The quest updates look alot like something Arcane would do.

Yeah, at times I wasn't have fun in the demo with keyboard and mouse. The weapon wheel is clearly meant for controller.
