Quest for the west is a unique fictional narrative adventure!
Travel across the countryside encountering tales of adventure, excitement and frogs.
During your travels you will decide your route using the mouse and clicking the circular points of interest along the map
Once engaged in an encounter enjoy the story and decide how it will progress
each decision has a pool of resolutions, each event is part of a larger generated list that is aggregated at run time
It (shouldn't ever) be the same game twice!
There is 3,790 words of short fiction in the compo build

Quest for the West is my 5th ludum dare entry and second compo. It is open source and available for viewing here:

if you run into any typo's or bugs please post them in the comments. Most of the game was developed on twitch, I stream regularly and would love to have some company. Give me a follow here: I giveaway development resources regularly and I would love to stream your jam game.

There will be a detailed post mortem soon about all the tools and how the game was made. If you have any specific questions please give me a comment and I will answer you promptly.
