How It Begins

Carrying only your trusty six shooter and numerous bullets, you are standing on the rolling planes of a post-industrial western town. Your friend Elias is in the hands of sheriff Clayton, who will hang him at noon. It looks like you're going to have to shoot some people

Notable Features

  • Instead of giving directional commands, you can only go 'forwards' or 'backwards' along a linear string of locations.
  • Most of the puzzles involve shooting things or people, but there is no (random or deterministic) combat system.
  • Many of the puzzles involve careful timing.
