Paper Cowboys is an online + couch co-op six player western platformer. Ride through the old west on a raptor that shoots lasers as you tear through the worst bad guys in Texas with a can of beans in one hand and an eight-barreled shotgun in the other! Enjoy a heart-pounding soundtrack, the finest stick figure artwork made with professional imaging tools like MS Paint, and game play that will have you banging on your keyboard as you shout "I'm gonna beat this game next time!"

The first alpha build of Paper Cowboys has been published, and I'm going to need some help with the game design and PR to move things forward!

Posted by Gamieon on May 5th, 2014

I finally got Paper Cowboys to a playable alpha state. I originally wanted to wait until it was much more polished; but I decided this was a good way to find people interested in helping me finish the game through constructive feedback, help with PR and play testing. And besides, if something is playable, why not post it?

A couple points of interest:

  • WSAD to move, Left Mouse to fire, Right Mouse for special weapon attacks if you have any.
  • There are only three levels right now. After you beat the third one, the game just stops.
  • Shoot barrels for random special weapon drops. Use Right Mouse to use.
  • Shoot hats off enemies and pick them up!
  • Shoot enemies for ammo and weapon upgrades.
  • I broke something and the hawk no longer goes down when you duck
  • Don't forget to go into Options from the main menu and set your profile name and color
  • It's multiplayer; so try to play with a friend! Hopefully that works...remember I'm a team of one and this has never been tested by the public until now.
  • Contact me if you'd like to be a play tester, co-designer or would like to help with PR.

That's the link to play. Here are some new screenshots I took; hopefully these will be among the last where there's only one player (myself).
