What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access gives our players a chance to participate in development, as well as it gives us an opportunity to explore different game ideas with a live community. We want to learn how you play the game and use that to make it a better experience for everyone.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that it will take about 6 months to prepare all the features and contents we want to be in the final version of the game.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan at least:
  • Additional quests and minigames
  • Expand the variety of weapons, horses, and carts
  • Difficulty balancing for the best player experience
  • Improvements to the game’s world environment
  • Additional performance optimizations
  • An extra couple of surprises and implementation of player feedback

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is already fully playable, with all the crucial features implemented, major bugs fixed and performance tweaked - we already 'tested' the game with a free Prolog and open beta tests.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We might increase the price once we go out of Early Access and extend the contents of the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Since the beginning of the closed Alpha in early 2020 our community supports us with great feedback! We have an in-game reporting tool using which players submit bugs, feedback and suggestions. We also have an experimental branch for our most brave and devoted players where they can try our upcoming features before they are stable enough to be put on our main branch.
We run internal and external surveys asking the players what features they want to be implemented next.”

About This Game

Grand Theft… Horse


Rustler is an open-world, top-down action game paying tribute to the good old GTA style and gameplay, fusing it with a historically inaccurate medieval setting. Play as The Guy, whose parents apparently were too lazy to give him a proper name. Experience feudal injustice, inquisition, witch-hunting, and join The Grand Tournament. Meet valiant, yet incredibly stupid knights. Complete a wide variety of twisted missions and quests, or don’t give a damn about the plot and bring mayhem in the villages and cities. Choose to go on foot, or by a stolen horse. Fight with a sword or pick a fancy automatic crossbow. All that, spiced up with an inappropriate Monty Python inspired sense of humor.

Be a bold, bald thug in a medieval sandbox


Rustler’s world is filled with humor, anachronisms, and pop culture references. Ever been towed for parking in a “NO HORSE ZONE”? Wanna do some cage fights in Medieval Martial Arts Arena? Or maybe pimp-a-horse a little? How about joining the Round-Earthers sect?

Wreak havoc in top-down, old-school combat


Use swords, spears, turds, and crossbows. Want to get more efficient? Try holy hand grenades or… horses. Nothing’s more deadly than hooves galloping in your direction. Or drifting a cart.

Screw everyone over to win half the kingdom


As a poor peasant, you really need to get creative in order to win the Grand Tournament™. Form weird alliances, double-cross your foes, and dig up dinosaur skeletons in a light, easy-to-understand, and hard-to-empathize-with story.

Hire bards to aid you musically in battle


A bard can be your sweaty personal radio. Not only will he not leave your side, even in the midst of the bloodiest of conflicts, he will also change the song's dynamic depending on the action on-screen. Moreover, you can express a desire to change the tune by punching him in the face.

A lot of horsin’ around


Shoot cows into the sky, dress up as a guard or even Death himself, burn entire piles of weed, draw fancy shapes with a plowing cart, survive a full-on guard onslaught after killing half the city… And that’s only a few of the many crazy things you can do in Rustler.
