Developer Bandit-1 and publisher Surprise Attack Games have announced that their button bashing dueling title Western Press will be available from tomorrow on PC and Mac. I’d never heard of the game before, but after seeing the launch trailer I really want to play it – check it out below:
A rapid-fire frontier dueling game, Western Press finally allows up to 16 players to settle the age old question of who can press a random string of ten buttons the fastest.Costing just a fistful of dollars , gameplay in Western Press is swift and simple: Choosing from 16 animated avatars, two players at a time face off in a duel to the death. Ten randomised button prompts appear on the screen, the first to complete the string draws iron, the second eats lead.Western Press features support for up to 16 player tournaments, online and local play, as well as heavily customisable options. Along with Fastest Time mode, it also has a single player ladder to both earn your skill level and unlock characters, and Memory mode for those with more cerebral power than dexterity. Western Press caters to all degrees of the competitively inclined. Players can also use their weapon of choice, as Western Press works with both Xbox and PlayStation controllers, keyboard and selected PC dancemats.Integrated Steam Workshop support allows the creatively minded to easily add custom characters, stages, taunts and soundscapes. With characters being shared dynamically while playing online. To kick things off, Drinkbox Studios have generously allowed Juan Agucate, star of Guacamelee, to join the fray. The battling luchadore is available today for all players to add to the game for free via Steam Workshop.
