This charming little game delivers on its premise well. It evokes the feeling of the dry, dusty Wild West, of course, but more impressively it blends that with mystique so naturally that it’s easy to forget not every western has the unexplainable at its core.

Unfortunately, the time constraints of a game jam are noticeable. Near the end of my experience, I would forget which prompts I had already chosen, or go entire playthroughs not seeing any new prompts at all. I ended up having to put the game down without seeing everything it had to offer – or at least, not being sure that I had seen everything. I would’ve loved a marker for prompts I’d already read, and perhaps a little less randomness in its suggestions.

That said, I had a dream about it last night after playing it, which is a pretty high compliment. It’s a lovely world the creator has made, and I’m glad I got to visit it for a bit.

(itch.io doesn’t show reviews, so I figured I’d post it here in the comments as well.)


This is so dope. Thanks for playing!



Hey I'm on a Mac and it says I can't play it because no application on my Mac can run it... is there and app I should download to play it or is it just not available for Mac :/

Nvm I'm just stupid




Unintentional! I haven’t even played any of those games...

haha thats ok =) ur game is pretty neat tho!! good job with it


Thanks for playing! I really appreciate it. 

I'm getting an error downloading the game. "can't load library nw_elf.dll"

I'm on windows 10 so maybe that's it?

Thanks for letting me know! I had no idea it wasn't working. It's fixed now, but you'll have to redownload it, sorry!

Thank you! I'm looking forward to playing

Interesting writing.
