The Story:
It's been several years since Harley Leger left New Bretagne and headed west, hoping to leave the past behind and make her way as a freelance writer. After arriving in the sleepy border town of Rosewater, a seemingly trivial assignment for the local paper leads to the hunt for a missing man's fortune—and the story of the century.

Harley and her ragtag posse embark on a harrowing journey across Western Vespuccia, facing bandits, rebels, ruthless oil barons, and many more obstacles on their quest for fame and riches.

Features:
- A thrilling treasure hunt with 5 travel companions. How you treat and interact with them affects the story.
- Traditional adventure game puzzles (i.e. inventory-based) some with more than one solution.
- Fully rotoscoped animations, including cinematic closeups.
- High resolution 1280x720 graphics (yes, that's 720p!)
- Full music score and voice acting.

Estimated Release: 2021

Hurray for western point-and-clicks! The art is amazing. Question: Do I have to stay on the good side of the law? :)

Damn, this guy is good......

The graphics are amazing  :shocked: ! I liked the graphics of posters and diplomas on the wall being almost readable, I want to click on them to zoom and have a good idea what they are already.

This is awesome.  :)


Same world of Lamplight City... This means is a "stempunk-western"?

that sunset map is really nice to look at. Also the cracks in the ground around the mountains are a cool touch.

Looking good! That sunset screenshot reminds me of Ben Jordan Case 2! Can't wait to see more!

Some obstacles in Rosewater will have multiple solutions. For example, you might want to help this poor fellow out by solving some puzzles, in exchange for him letting you into that building.

Or, you could just punch his lights out.



But be careful: violent actions have their consequences.
