Five Steam Games to Watch for in April

Westerado: Double Barreled by Ostrich Banditos

An open-world spaghetti western in a dusty, pixelated style. The game promises that you can "shoot anyone, anytime" while hunting down clues for who killed your killed your mother and brother. And I have got to say, I believe them. Playing in Westerado, the origins of Westerado: Double Barreled (it's free to play online), you can shoot your own uncle if you choose rather than letting him help you avenge your family. The game doesn't even blink.

Another interesting gameplay aspect is how you use your gun. You can draw it during any conversation, then choose to cock it for extra menace, or holster your weapon. Your actions, as well as the conversation prompts you choose affect how people respond to your bandy-legged hero. As each shot requires three key presses (draw, cock, fire), and then a key press for reloading each bullet this is certainly a game that will make you think before firing.

Westerado: Double Barreled is a "bigger, better, badder and funnier" version of Westerado. The Steam version also includes controller support and higher resolution. Hopefully, Double Barreled will also have an expanded soundtrack, because the one in Westerado drove me insane in under ten minutes.

Westerado: Double Barreled is due to release for Windows and Mac on April 16.
