If you haven’t had a chance to check out the new pictures and trailer for West of Loathing, you might wanna take a brief moment to look through the stuff we have below as this may be one of the best indie RPGs you’ll see in 2017. Or at least the funniest. Created by Asymmetric Publications, this is a pseudo-sequel to their first RPG of the same ilk, The Kingdom of Loathing.
It is an RPG at the most core elements of storytelling, character development, battles, and a victory for all the good guys. Laced in the artwork a kid in junior high would create during Algebra, because who the hell likes Algebra? For real though, this kind of stuff takes me back to the days of Liquid Television as they would present “Stick Figure Theatre“, which I highly encourage you to spend an hour at work looking up on YouTube as I wish it existed now.
West of Loathing looks pretty awesome and I’m looking forward to playing it when the game is released for PC (on Steam), Mac, and Linux in August. For now, enjoy the trailer below!
