On a quest for revenge in the wild west, how you play the cards you're dealt determines your fate.

Once upon a time, there was a lone cowboy
who set out to get revenge.
Like a bloodhound, he scoured the west
determined to find the man who robbed him,
come hell or high water.
And while this cowboy was
just a little guy,
he'd end up making some big choices on his journey
that changed his story in downright mystifying ways.
Setting off across the dusty west,
he knew that if he played his cards right,
one day he'd find that varmint
and give him exactly what he had coming to him.

This game is cute, funny, and pretty cool. The only problem is it ends too soon. 

This game needs an infinite mode! 

I was thinking like whatever card you try that isn't one specific card (or cards) randomly chosen per game would end in the gunman getting away, You'll have to Survive many rounds to figure out which card to use each time you play.

This was such a fun little game! Would your team be interested in talking about for an hour or two on my podcast?

Fun little game, I found some parts to be pretty hilarious, and I just overall enjoyed it!

very good game , im impresed 

Really cute game! The little parade of followers you can get is a great touch!

"You take him on a romantic ride on your Dead Horse."
Also somehow my bandit and a dead body got into a fist fight.

My boyfriend and I had a great time playing this game together :) Howdy pardner


Okay, I might have killed someone over a poker chip, and I might have used a dead horse for criminal enterprises, but at least I got my revenge🤷‍♂️


Howdy folks!

We’ve released an updated, deluxe version with new events, responses, full voice acting, achievements, and a cardpedia over on Steam.

If you enjoyed this, check it out over there: https://t.co/9MhYS2qGnZ

I had a lot more fun than i thought i would with this game! Its gives some hints of the first chapter of Inscryptions play style while incorporating a fun set of mechnics. :D would definitely love to see more if you ever decide to expand on this.


Real cute fun little game! 


Spannish language would be cool. I like so much 


When the snake tried to bite me and I used the Whiskey, it told me I made a baby but I didn't get the Baby card :( My baby...


I love the art style of the game. It really adds to the funny. With the numerous amount of cards it really gives an infinite amount of posibilities to the ending of the story. Love this charming game overall


This game is amazing and very funny lmao. I would love an endless mode of this. 


Great game. The 3D graphics are stuning!


pretty fun and cool game... I really like the style too.


Very neat concept and very well done!


Just pushed another build with some fixes! Really appreciate the comments here with bugs and typos and stuff.


Stole pistols at poker tables, freed a bandit, made my horse drunk. 10/10. Would throw my lasso again.


Such a fun game, thanks for sharing it!

I'll just add my voice to the chorus of folks wishing for more content/expansion of the game. But it's a lot of fun as-is. :)

It would also be awesome to see an expansion that allows for user game mods. I'm guessing something like that would need a way to add new card definitions/art, and an editor for rules to connect them with existing cards.


What an absolute humdinger of a hoedown! I'll tell ya hwat, that was more fun than mud wrasslin' the boys while being hopped up on a snake bite bein' 4 beers down, I tell you hwat! Hope yall done enjoy my video now, pardner! 🤠


This game was so cool! Nice deck builder type of game! Lived out my dream as a cowboy and got my revenge! Good Job!

Shame we can't claim this besides downloading it. I don't have access to a computer now and i don't know how to add it to my collection either. I'm going to forget to download this later... And i want to play it


I think you can add it to a collection without downloading it and that will help you find it later

Small bug I think.

This is resolved now, thanks for posting!

Its such a charming and silly game with a great art style and writing.

its such a fun little western experience. 

I hope you keep working on it and adding more to it, its the kind of game that makes you want to play over and over and I hope more encounters and locations gets added to add more replayability 

very fun even though its short. if you use the oil baron in the poker game however it says you used a baby, not that big of deal just thought you may want to know.


Definetly going to try this!


Amazing! A better western than RDR2.


This game is so charming!


Hell yeah



and, if I may be so bold,



I think the Fortune Teller is bugged? 


there’s a little ok button visible to the right of card, sorry about that! That aspect is a little cursed I guess , we’ll take a look at fixing that


No apologies necessary! :) Congrats on the release.

Cheers! If you try playing again we're better at supporting varied aspect ratios now


did the priest just tell me to have an 18+ experience with a dead body?

pls fix map generation

also add triple gun


You can walk back

oh, didnt know that thx


Great game! The opening sequence is well done! I like the music as well! Gameplay-wise, I enjoyed using the cards in different ways to get some unexpected and sometimes hilarious results. However, I felt like the results were a bit underwhelming or repetitive on that second run. Regardless, I had a blast playing this! Great work! 

Really nice going, guys. I especially like the intro and how you build up a little posse that follows you, with the name of the card changing them a bit, like the "cow" horse.

Are you looking to work on it any more? If so I have some feedback.

Always happy to hear feedback, but we probably won’t expand it much!
