Adding Just a Patch of Salt For Best Flavor (v1.11.1)

  • The game should run in Windows XP again, probably (we really mean it this time)
  • Best Font Mode should no longer prevent text from appearing
  • Letters should no longer double-up when you type text in the Linux version of the game. Our apologies for the extra work now required when naming your horse “Balloon”, “Cappuccino”, or “Tennessee Bookkeeper”

  • Fan Hammer's description in combat should now accurately predict how much damage it will do to an opponent
  • Corrected a typo that was maybe preventing Pete from complaining about his joints in one pretty specific circumstance
  • Lloyd will no longer incorrectly say that you have a room at the Jewel if you haven’t gotten one yet
  • The ghostly Foreman at the Jumbleneck Mine should now actually disappear if dispatched with the old pickaxe
  • It is now possible to get the Kurtzian Charm perk from Irene regardless of whether you already acquired mushroom pliers or not
  • Reduced the power of the Energized effect because it was too… energized

  • Laid groundwork for the ability to (finally) release some DLC.
  • Fixed lots of bugs in new features for the upcoming DLC!
  • Did we mention that we're really close to finishing the DLC?

  • Real talk for a second: We removed the noose from the tree outside Chuck’s house after someone pointed out the crappy connotations it has. We were oblivious, and we’re sorry.

Patch Me, I'm Dreaming (v1.11)

  • This patch is live for Windows, Mac, and Linux (which means that Linux now has controller support)
  • The game should run in Windows XP again, probably
  • Macs with Retina displays should now display the game at a reasonable size instead of in a tiny baby window
  • Changed the setting from "blend" to "liquefy" so the game should load faster and have a smoother texture if you try to drink it

  • Controller UI elements should now hide themselves if you start using the mouse or keyboard to play
  • The Character/Skill screen will use the original layout on PC when using keyboard or mouse instead of a controller
  • We the developers resolve that in order form a more perfect game, the list of screen sizes should no longer list the same resolution multiple times
  • Options screen tooltips are no longer mostly off-screen in non-16:9 resolution windows
  • Scrolling the map with WASD is back to being a peppy and enjoyable experience for all ages
  • Several places* that you could clip through the scenery and walk behind the world should no longer allow that (Clippy, you're drunk, go home)

  • If you’ve unlocked Ruthless as a perk (but not Honorable) you should now be able to select that perk when skipping the Prologue
  • The post office’s “infinite sauté knives” promotion has ended
  • Silver (and silver plated) weapons should now (finally) actually do extra damage versus demonic creatures
  • Grace should no longer exhort you to collect a goblet if you’ve already tossed it into a bottomless pit
  • The portion of the Necromancer quest line that involves the Ley Line diagram should now work more intuitively
  • The portion of the El Vibrato quest line that involves taking a keystone to the Lost Dutch Oven Mine has been clarified and is a bit more friendly
  • Fixed some bugs that we introduced while fixing other bugs
  • Corrected no typos... Could we have caught them all? Time to consult our typokedex!

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

“I found it damn near impossible to play this game without a stupid grin glued to my face at all times.”
9/10 – Destructoid

“West of Loathing is a wonderfully written RPG adventure, both fun and funny from its opening credits to whenever it is you decide you've probably read every last word in the game and realize, regretfully, that you've finished.”
88/100 – PC Gamer

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)
