A six shooter is all you have in a world of sand, dust, and blood...

Dead Horizon is a short and dirty point and click adventure game for your home computer system. Play as Bonnie Starr, a former farmgirl turned infamous pistoleer as she attempts to gain redemption at the end of a gun.

Dead Horizon is inspired by the light gun games of old. No, not Area 51, Time Crisis or Virtua Cop. The real old ones, like the original Wild Gunmen, Namco Quick & Crash, and Mad Dog McCree. This game was inspired by those and the developer's own fascination with westerns and their machismo focused story lines on masculinity, murder, and guns. This game has all those things, and more!

Features Include:

-Gameplay only involves the mouse. We've cut out those useless fidgety bits, like keyboards!
-Out of date graphics, like you remember from that childhood before you were born!
-Out of date soundtrack, so fabulous you'll want to own it separately!
-Quickdraw duels with over five dangerous hombres!
-Classic 4:3 aspect ratio, just for those that missed it!
-Kill some people that probably deserve it!
-Learn from the best shootist this side of the sunken desert!
-Kill some people that maybe don't deserve it!
-Getting to know whether or not you'd miss!

The hard sell:
Dead Horizon takes less than ten minutes to play, but a lot of sweat and a LOT of tears went into making this game. If you take the time to experience this, trust us when we say it is appreciated.

This game is dedicated to the memory of my grandfather, who had the spirit of a gunslinger.

This game is also available over on steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/671700/Dead_Horizon/

And over on itch.io: https://pixelwestern.itch.io/dead-horizon

The soundtrack is available over here: https://open.spotify.com/album/4ikKvq490WCgJtb1fPVAWz

This game runs better as a unity launcher but I wanted to get a Newgrounds version working as I spent a lot of time playing short awesome games on this site. (like the quit in the menu does nothing... because uh... yeah?)

Great story telling.

Emptygoddess responds:

Thank you.

One of thу best story tellings I've seen
Music helps greatly

Emptygoddess responds:

The music is amazing. NICKLEPUNK did it, and they're fab. You should look them up, they just... they make great stuff.

It can be challenging to read the text sometimes. Other than that, great game!

Emptygoddess responds:

Yeah, there's a bug that makes the text fuzzy/weird. At least you could read it, sometimes it just comes up as thick blocks. I don't know what causes it. It seems most common in flash, but I've seen it a few times in PC.

This game was badass. I really liked the gun draw mechanic. I hope you make a sequel.

Emptygoddess responds:

Thank you, thank you.
