Hard West, the Western version of XCOM

Hard West is a new project from the independent game development studio CreativeForge Games who are best known for their first project, namely Ancient Space. The game is currently looking for funding on KickStarter but as the team consist of members that have worked on titles such as Call of Juarez, Dead Island, Hard Reset and Shadow Warrior, you shouldn’t be worried too much about the kickstarting their newest game.

Enough about the team behind Hard West, let’s talk some more about the game. Hard West is a tactical adventure game with a splice of RPG. It features the turn-based combat strategy that is commonly known from the XCOM series and combines it with the Might and Magic’s world map, set in a Western world. The game will mainly be single player with a possible co-op and multiplayer modes once stretch goals has been reached. Based upon the trailer below, Hard West looks like a promising tactical game in an original setting that is rarely visited in video games.

For now Hard West is a PC exclusive but Mac and Linux versions will be planned if they reach certain stretch goals.
