Boot Hill Heroes is an EarthBound-inspired Old West RPG

Apr 19 // Tony Ponce

We live in a wonderful age where, if a specific game doesn't exist, an inspired individual will just up and say, "It shall be done!" The tools of creation have never been more easily accessible, and it has resulted in both original and familiar experiences for just about anybody's tastes. On that note, who's ready for a SNES-style RPG set in the American Old West with graphics heavily inspired by the EarthBound series? I can't see you guys through the screen, but I'm assuming a lot of hands just shot up in unison!

Boot Hill Heroes is the freshman effort of Experimental Gamer, a two-man team consisting of Dave Welch and Ben (last name mystery!), and it's quite remarkable thus far! Not only does it look fantastic, it also features four-player, drop-in, drop-out, local co-op, simply because why the hell not? If this masterpiece-in-the-making can come together without a hitch, it'll should be available on PC and XBLIG this October.

That's where you guys come in. Yes, there is a Kickstarter page, but as you can clearly see, the game is mostly complete. All Dave and Ben really need funds for is original audio, estimated at $5000. If they don't meet their goal, they'll find a way to make the money somehow, though it'll delay the release. You don't want that to happen, do you?
