Open Fantasy Western Roguelike

Overview

Land of Strangers (LoSt) is a loosely Wild West-themed game set in an alternate reality. Development is still at an early stage, with limited content. LoSt is open source, written in Python and packed for Windows and Linux. The game can be downloaded from the project's blog at http://agingminotaur.blogspot.com/

Current features include:

  • Turnbased tactics on a hexagonal grid, with original rules for combat, wounds, and time
  • Open, seamless world
  • Interactions with NPCs and landscape features
  • Interface, configurable and expandable
  • Randomized flora and faune
  • Starting careers, foibles and shticks
  • Slowly expanding weird west-setting, inhabited by strange animals, mudfaced goons, sandcroppers, wheelin' judges and more

Inspirations

The setting of LoSt is only loosely based on historical Panamerica, inspired also by cinema (from Kurosowa to Jodorowsky) and tv (from Carnivale to Peter Brooks' Mahabarata), as well as Indigenous cultures of the Americas and elsewhere. Throw in some stray sources, like Deadlands RPG, The Place of Dead Roads, The Return of Post Apocalyptic Cowgirls, Krazy Kat, Mark of the Mole, and Heart of Darkness, to mention a few.
