In part two of my video series – the Let’s Play of Westerado: Double Barrelled continues.
The game is starting to open up and I get a sense of just how big the American West can be – even following the railroad, it feels like I’m on the fringes with dangerous wildlife and roaming gunslingers. Everyone now seems to have heard of my violent deeds and, more realistically than most games, people are now begging me not to kill them and to leave them alone.
I think I may be.. evil!
Hopefully I’ll have a chance to redeem myself with my deeds soon. I assumed everyone who wanted me to back off was an enemy to be killed, but obviously conventional gameplay wisdom is more like the thought pattern of a raging psychopath.
I’m hearing more about who wield real power in this world.. and I’m starting to find out more about who killed my family – and how those two worlds may be interweaved – I’m looking forward to untangling what is basically a huge web of gossip in coming episodes!
Thanks for watching and all comments welcome.
Intro music this week was Everybody Loves My Baby, the first track off the seminal 1960 jugband album by Dave van Ronk and the Ragtime Jug Stompers. (Buy vinyl here)
