Corral Countdown 1: Boot Hill Bounties Now On Steam!



It's finally here! The long awaited sequel to Boot Hill Heroes is now available on Steam. Boot Hill Bounties takes everything that was great about Boot Hill Heroes and multiplies it by 10!

Bronco County is on the brink of war. A conspiracy to provoke a conflict between the western settlers and the Chepakwik threatens to destroy both sides. Only Kid, Doc, Moon and Rosy know the truth. But to save their homes, they’ll have to hunt down five legendary outlaws whose very names strike fear into the hearts of men.

Boot Hill Bounties continues the saga of Kid and his companions as they journey deeper into the darkest corners of the Wild West and come face to face with the evil Creed Little, Stampede Sally, Tuco Delgado, Scorpion Saint and Burning Crow.

Boot Hill Bounties continues the story of Boot Hill Heroes, but Boot Hill Bounties was designed for new players to comfortably jump in without having played the first game. Six years in development, Boot Hill Bounties is a 2D retro RPG set in the Wild West that supports single player or UP TO FOUR PLAYER LOCAL CO-OP.

Corral Countdown 2: Kickstarter Backers

With only one day left before release, it wasn’t easy to decide on what else to write about for the penultimate Corral Countdown. But there’s one element that has played a major role both in the development of Boot Hill Bounties as well as in the game itself.

Boot Hill Heroes began as a Kickstarter project way back in May of 2012. If you can imagine, Kickstarter was still a relatively new phenomenon at the time and the campaign was very successful. The project garnered nearly 500 backers and about 100 of them pledged enough to have their own sprite in the game.



Kickstarter Backers can be found all over Bronco County. They typically blend in with other non-player character residents, but occasionally stand out.



Backer characters can interact with the player in a variety of ways:

  • Give some relevant opinion about the plot that adds more context to the game
  • Tell a joke or say something bizarre or interesting to provide some relief from the main story
  • Give Kid a perk just from speaking to them
  • Give a treasure for free or in exchange for completing a small side quest
  • Teach a recipe, imbue property or treatment
  • Kickstarter backers have contributed a lot to this project, from both the initial funding of the project to adding more color and personality to Bronco County itself.Tomorrow Boot Hill Bounties will finally be released along with the final Corral Countdown. There’s still one more thing I want to tell people about the game.

Reviews

“Boot Hill Heroes is no cookie-cutter title... an easy recommendation for anyone intrigued by the setting.”
4/5 – RPGamer

“Co-op works even better in combat... It's perfectly orchestrated chaos, and it's easily the high point of the game”
5/5 – Co-optimus

“With its quirky, distinctive style, Boot Hill Heroes is shaping up to be everything it claimed to be and more. It’s undeniable that, as a tribute to EarthBound and other SNES-era classics, this game really shines.”
4/5 – Operation Rainfall

About This Game

Boot Hill Heroes is the first episode in a game series that fuses elements of spaghetti western film - gunslinging outlaws, brave lawmen, and the untamed wilderness - with classic RPG storyline and gameplay. 90s console RPGs like Final Fantasy, Earthbound and Chrono Trigger created lasting memories and impacted us as gamers. Now, Boot Hill Heroes brings back those experiences while revitalizing the genre with a Wild West spin and innovative new gameplay elements.
It's an experimental combination of old and new ideas intended to bring a new and unique experience to modern gamers and old-school fans alike. It's an epic Wild West adventure packed with excitement, intrigue and a dose of humor.
