Play OverviewPlay Overview

West of Loathing (2018) is a comedic adventure where you roleplay as a stickman cowboy. The quipping characters and intricate puzzles work best with teenagers, but the slapstick comedy will make anyone laugh. Traverse snake-infested gorges, punch skeletons wearing cowboy hats, grapple with demon cows and investigate a wide variety of disgusting spittoons.
