Very creative game! I included it in my Pippin Barr 'GAME IDEA' Game Jam compilation, if you'd like to check it out :)


Absolutely loved this entry, such a clever use of the shooter and interactive fiction genres. The dialogue was also nicely written with great humour which kept me playing till the end. Loved the different characters.

Really enjoyed this, who knew Westerns and IF went together so well?

The writing remains on point throughout, Literature Libby being a standout.

To say much more would spoil it. Essentially you get to shoot words with a gun to make IMPORTANT NARRATIVE DECISIONS, there need be no greater incentive.

If you want to see a (tiny) slice of it in action, there's a bad western accent reading out some highlights below:


Loved it, hilariously creative.


some nice story you got there partner.
