About The Game

West of Loathing is 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.

  • A sprawling open world, chock full of danger, quests, puzzles, and mysteries
  • Lush hand-drawn black and white graphics
  • 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
