Preview of Bang! Howdy
8:02 AM | Evan Holt | Comment on this story

GamersInfo has posted a preview of a new game in development called Bang! Howdy. Being a fan of bugs, the creator is creating a new arcade game based on gold, cows and lots of “varmints” and “Yeehaws!”.

It’s a turn-based tactical game with a twist (we’ll get to the twist part in a bit – it’s the part that Michael envisioned for the bugs). It’s in full 3D with a wonderful art style – rather steam punk. It will, of course, be available for PC, Mac and Linux. It’s full of mini-games with 2-4 people but will eventually scale to 8-16 people. It’s funny. Michael’s favorite word is kooky – he uses it often. It’s free to play, mostly. The game also has the wonderful chat filters found in Three Rings previous game so expect lots of “varmints” and “Yeehaws!” Enough ambiguity.
Three game-types exist so far (with more to come):
• Claim Jumping – On the board there will be gold nuggets. You and your opponents will battle to get the gold nuggets back to your claim first. If you kill an opponents unit along the way, they’ll drop their nugget, leaving you the chance to pick it up.

• Cattle Rustling – Get your Big Shot next to a cow and brand the cow. The one who brands the most cows wins.

• Gold Rush – On one side of the board are gold nuggets; on the other are the players. You must rush to the other side and claim as many nuggets as possible.
