Howdy fellow gunslingers! Great pleasure to welcome you to our next Developer Shootout. Within the next weeks and months, we share tons of news on the steps we take to bring the dangerous Wild West to an atmospheric life! So, let’s speak about the Game Loop of Colt Canyon.
At the beginning of the game you and your partner will be attacked by bandits. You will be shot and left in your own blood; your partner gets kidnapped. When the hero gets on his feet again a bloody path of revenge lies before him: Reach the bandit camp, slaughter them down, free your partner and make your way back. Spaghetti Western style!
Colt Canyon consists of 3 main areas with 3 levels each. You must cross the vast levels from left to right. In every run you can explore the surroundings to find loot like new weapons, ammo or healing items. You will also get the opportunity to help other kidnapped folks that might help you in one way or the other afterwards. Additionally, Colt Canyon provides realistic elements and various ways to advance through the levels: Reloading takes time and you better get prepared for the next battle. Especially in the beginning this is not just run and gun! Stealth elements and an extensive weapon arsenal allow for strategic decision making, various traps and predatory wildlife needs to be avoided and secrets want to be uncovered and explored.
