ABOUT: Tales west is an action rpg made using rpgmaker2003. The game is set in the wild west, during the gold rush to be exact, circa 1865. The story chronicles the stranger, (you) and his quest for gold, justice, and revenge.

The Lawless Frontier...

Home to outlaws, wanderers, and vagabonds...

Following the civil war, folks from all over
the country came here seeking their fortune.

That fortune was gold, or the promise of it.
But a new breed of outlaw was flourishing,
striking fear into the hearts of decent
folks everywhere...

Known as "cow boys", these bandits owned
allegiance only to each other. No
man, woman, or child was safe from
their wrath...
Like a violent sandstorm, sweeping across the
great plains...

A worn stranger travels to Drywood, seeking
fortune of his own...

Feb '07:

Yeah I know, territories has an extra r in it. I've already fixed this  :P

Very early map that might not make it into the final game

*NEW* 9/6/07:

This is the desert area that was kinda sparse and open in the videos. I tried to make it look more organic/realistic.
You can spot an enemy in the lower right, and some hidden chests. The one in the upper right is actually pretty
hard to get to, but the reward is worth it  :shh:  :naughty:
*New 9/7/07*

Protect your money from thieves by depositing it in the bank.

A hidden area... :shh:

Now with 100% more shrubbery. The same map as the 9/6 screen. It's huge (300x300)!






Z= Talk/Shoot
X= Menu (CMS not in demo, sorry)
SHIFT= Strafe
1= Use Jerky
2= Use Antidote
3= Use Vintage Wine
8= Use Rope
9= See Map

SAVING: Talk to a priest or save in the menu if you are at a town.

DYING:When you die you will return to the last town you visited with half of your gold. But, if you happen to

Keep on Baggin'
downloading now...

EDIT mmkay the intro is AWESOME.  You have a great ear for music and sound effects,
and I love the whole setup.  Feels like Tombstone or something epic.

A couple of things:  In the intro after the hero shoots up the train robbers, I couldn't progress,
because a body was in the way.  Or maybe I missed something?

I loaded a random save file and wandered out into the wilderness.  While I respect the amount of work
that went into the map, with all the events and bullets and whatever I did get some lag.  My computer isn't
terrible, it's utterly average, but overall I think it would be better for speed and navigation to split the map
into quadrants or something.

Also, the area where you exit the motel could use some pizazz.  other than that, looks great!  :)

The reason why you lag in wild is you need a horse i just found that out
Oh by the way Awsome game there Nick

Level 87
oh, thanks Teabag. Ya I realized that bug, fixed it, and reuploaded. So theres a new download link.
You're right about the quadrants- this would have made things ALOT easier on my part.
I'm going to have to do that for the full version. There's also alot of empty area that isn't seen by
the player, and way too many events.

Level 87
Oh so it is lag i dont lag when im on my hourse?

Level 87
I don't understand what you're asking, or if that's even a question. But yes, there's less lag with the horse for some reason. Sorry about the lag, the maps have way too many events. I'm going to divide those large maps into smaller ones for the final version of the game.
