GDC 2014: Shoot and/or collect all the things in 2-Bit Cowboy
2-Bit Cowboy is an absolutely charming platforming game with original Game Boy aesthetics and a plethora of fetch quests to enjoy. Crescent Moon Games showed us the ropes at GDC 2014, and it's easy to see how this game could become habit-forming. Players leap, swim, and dash their way through a monochromatic western paradise and pick up odd jobs. These can range from shooting scorpions to gathering coins to polishing off ne'er-do-well bandits. It eventually gets to the point where very nearly every object you interact with is a part of a mission.
The platforming action seems really well polished, and there are certain undeniably cute parts about 2-Bit Cowboy. I mean, how often are you going to get to wall-jump with a bull? 2-Bit Cowboy is coming out around April for about $1.99.
