Heavily outgunned and outnumbered, Jack will need help from a few rather unusual allies to even the odds. In the land with no laws, from deserted anthills and dusty mines, through badland battlefields to treacherous swamps, he’s on a hunt for the Calaveras gang. And they are wanted alive…or dead.

Gameplay

The game is almost fully hand drawn in a distinct comic book style. The main protagonist – bounty hunter Jack, is voiced by legendary Elias Toufexis (Adam Jensen from DeusEx series) and on his journey, he meets more than 15 fully voiced and rather peculiar characters.
