Westerly is a co-operative adventure game of westward expansion. Players select a character at the beginning of the game and try to get them to California in one piece...literally. In Westerly things can go from bad to worse in a matter of minutes and your character can be injured, maimed, left to die by the group or maybe just eaten by a bear or even your own party. Ayup that's right I'm talking about cannibalism. Fear not if it all goes wrong you can rejoin the party as a different character that hops into the wagon at the next town.
The game involves strategy and co-operation combined with a tongue in cheek approach to all the horrible things that can happen along the perilous route out west.
