Project Description

West of Dead

A place of gun smoke and darkness, sin and damnation, wendigos and witches. A shifting, chaotic world that takes its form from the memories, culture or beliefs of the souls who pass through. When a dead man awakens with only the memory of a figure in black, he sets into motion a chain of events that have truly mythic consequences.

Step into the boots of the dead man William Mason (voiced by Ron Perlman) and descend into the grim and gritty world of Purgatory in this cover-based twin-stick shooter that’ll put your skills to test. Dodge behind cover as you try to outgun your enemies in the unknown procedurally generated hunting grounds. The Wild West has never been this dark.

Clifftop Games is a freshly founded Swedish one man studio, consisting of Joel Staaf Hästö, professional game programmer turned solo indie dev. He is responsible for everything but art and music, a Joel-of-all-trades if you will, which is a fancy way of saying he’s painfully mediocre at pretty much everything. But don’t tell anyone.
