Give Me Your Elevator Patch (v1.03)

  • Keyboard commands used in the game can now be fully customized from the new Keyboard Options menu — va pnfr lbh rkvfg va n ebg-guvegrra jbeyq, fnl
  • The speed of the player’s horse can now be altered in the Options menu, fstr or ssslowerrr
  • The brightness of the game window can now be adjusted in the Video Options menu

  • New, safer, code is used to save the game — this should prevent players from (rarely) ending up with a save file filled with zeroes
  • Short on space? West of Loathing now takes almost 50% less drive space than it did before (we packed the 0s and 1s much closer together)
  • Short on time? The game now loads 80% faster, so you spend more time playing and less time not playing
  • Short on RAM? Memory usage has been reduced significantly — this may help with some crashes on older PCs
  • Short on patience? Don’t bother reading the plaques in Shaggy Dog Cave

  • Corrected a bunch of typos, let's say... 37 of them
  • One of the silly walks is now slightly more silly
  • The cowbell fights at Hellstrom Ranch now count as cow fights for Susie-leveling purposes
  • Drinking a perfect cup of coffee will no longer prevent subsequent cups of coffee from giving you their effects (but you will still forever know how far they fall from their Platonic ideal)
  • When You’ve Had Your Coffee, your maximum Action Points will now properly be increased

  • Pete's Dark Whisperin' no longer ignores enemy Spooky Resistance
  • Fan Hammer no longer causes goofy combat log messages after killing unguliths and other ungulith-like things
  • Kurtzian Charm is a now a perk and on par with the other Kurtzian perks
  • Completing a certain quest no longer prevents the Chastity Pants from doing their chastity thing
  • Gary and the player will no longer speak for each other at the Alamo — don’t you forget it!

  • Created a Steam Controller profile: steam://controllerconfig/597220/1118485857 (Full, real controller support is still in the pipeline)
  • A bunch of small bug fixes that we forgot to write down (sorry!)
This patch took forever for a bunch of reasons too boring to elaborate on here. Thanks for your patience!

Reviews

“West of Loathing's goofy stick figures hide a genuinely deep and hilarious game; [The] humor is so warm and clever that it never gets old.”
9/10 – Polygon

“West of Loathing is a surreal role-playing game with an unapologetically silly sense of humor that would make Mel Brooks proud.”
88/100 – VentureBeat

“Diving into West of Loathing reveals fun gameplay and a cleverly written, and often hilarious, tale of the Wild West.”

About This Game

Say howdy to West of Loathing -- a single-player slapstick comedy adventure role-playing game set in the wild west of the Kingdom of Loathing universe. Traverse snake-infested gulches, punch skeletons wearing cowboy hats, grapple with demon cows, and investigate a wide variety of disgusting spittoons.

Talk your way out of trouble as a silver-tongued Snake Oiler, plumb the refried mysteries of the cosmos as a wise and subtle Beanslinger, or let your fists do the talking as a fierce Cow Puncher. Explore a vast open world and encounter a colorful cast of characters, some of whom are good, many of whom are bad, and a few of whom are ugly.

Features:
  • a sprawling open world, chock full of danger, quests, puzzles, and mysteries
  • lush hand-drawn black and white graphics
  • full stick-figure customization
  • thousands of jokes, gags, and goofs
  • crunchy turn-based combat (but only if you want it)
  • liberal use of the Oxford comma
  • over 50 hats
  • disreputable saloons
  • several gulches
  • a drunk horse
NOTE: characters are not literally colorful (the game is in black and white)
