The Real Texas is an action RPG taking place in Strange, Texas: a Kafka-esque parody stuck halfway between modern-day America and olden-days, RPG England.

Five Years In Strange - The Real Texas 5 Year Anniversary Sale



Hey Everyone!

It's hard to believe but The Real Texas was out five years ago last week. I'm still incredibly proud of it; I can't really put it words how fulfilling it is to hear from people who enjoyed it in the past or are still discovering it now.

To celebrate, I'm putting it on sale:

  • The Real Texas is 55% off
  • Cellpop Goes Out At Night (which is about one year old now) is 11% off
  • The Dusty Skies Edition (includes both games) discount stacks with this, too!

I don't do this too often, and this is the cheapest it's been (or will be) in a long time, so if you are curious-- now's a good time to scoop it up! Or, if you've already visited Strange, tell your pardners if you think it's up their alley.

To everyone who has played it and enjoyed it over the years-- a sincere thank you from this cowboy right here!

Calvin

About This Game

OUT NOW - The Real Texas - Part 2, Part 1 - Cellpop Goes Out At Night


Texas is launching on Steam with an all-new mini-sequel, Cellpop Goes Out At Night. The sequel is included in the Dusty Skies Edition. Buy them together and save 10%!

OVERVIEW


"These days, folks have a lot of funny ideas about what makes a Real Cowboy..."

The Real Texas is an action adventure game that plays like a mashup of Zelda: Link to the Past and Ultima VI.

Sam, an ordinary Texas rancher, is on holiday in England when he steps through a blue portal and into a purgatory dimension, Strange:

Here, a friendly witch is handing out guns to visitors. A crazed, German-speaking wizard hurls elecbolts from his castle. And upriver, something's going on that involves a lot of chickens.

Stuck in the middle sits Sam, a Real Cowboy.

... But that's just his job title back home-- it's not obvious that it's of any practical help here!

USER REVIEWS


The game has been out for awhile-- here's some reviews from other sites:

  • "This thing is like some bizarre voxel dream, with its square, swaggerin' cowboys and its castles and insane German wizard-scientists and talking rats . . . It's fun and beautiful and a little bit rough on purpose, and I suppose I'll never forget it." - Abram03
  • "i will never forget this surreal nostalgic ride. i haven't had such a rewarding experience in a long time." - countersweet
  • "This game is incredible and I cannot recommend it enough to everyone." - Microwave

FEATURES


  • Kill things with six types of classic cowboy and fantasy weapons
  • Rummage through peoples' houses without fear of retribution while they go about their daily business
  • Help people out with their PROBLEMS (*rolls eyes*) often by shooting your gun many, many times-- just like real life!
  • Many special items and powerups, optional areas, and two types of chicken cutlets to collect
  • Wear a bullet-proof vest underneath a sequined evening-gown if you want
  • Supports all main game/life perlis including boss battles, enemies, traps, the estate tax

IMPROVEMENTS AND OTHER NOTES

For the Steam release I added achievements, improved the framerate, added more compatibility options, remastered the sound effects and optimized things generally.


Even without the mini-sequel it's a lot improved over the original release. But I was careful to NOT ret-conn the original game. People seemed to really like it, so I wanted to respect that by not changing it up in any way.

To complete The Real Texas takes maybe about 10 hours, depending on what you want to do. Cellpop Goes Out At Night might take about 1-2 hours. Both the main game and the sequel have lots of secrets and weird things to uncover. In fact, there are some things that still haven't been figured out (to my knowledge) in four years... So I made it an achievement. Ha-ha! Good luck. :)

I've put a lot of love into both of these games, and I hope you will find them special and enjoyable. Thanks!
