New release: Showdown at Willow Creek
In the mood for something text-based? Choice of Games has a new game for you to choose: Showdown at Willow Creek, a Western-themed choose-your-own-adventure style RPG hybrid written by Alana Joli Abbott.
Saddle up and defend the town of Willow Creek from nefarious outlaws and city slickers! It all starts when a rancher’s daughter goes missing, and it ends at the showdown at Willow Creek, where greed, lust, science and Mother Nature will face off at high noon.
Gamble, seduce, brawl, or shoot your way through Willow Creek, where gunslingers make the laws, and everybody has secrets. Will you romance the gambler or the soiled dove (or both)? Will you side with the scientists bringing electricity to the Old West, or with a tribe of native American Utes? Will you unravel the conspiracy that threatens to tear the town apart, or will you light the fuse to blow it all sky high?
With stats such as Brawlin’, Gamblin’, Shootin’, Sweet Talkin’ and Investigatin’, I think this might just be the second properly Western-themed RPG I’ve seen (the first, of course, being The Real Texas, though that one’s really more of a Zelda-alike).
