Luckslinger Sees All My Wildest Video Game Fantasies Come True

Ever wonder how wild the Wild West would have been if everyone had been scratching records instead of rustling cattle? Luckslinger might be the game for you, and let's be clear, ever since I saw the opening credits of things like Samurai Champloo and Afro Samurai, this game has been for me.

Oh yeah.

It’s a side-scrolling shooter and adventure title that is mostly a cowboy game, except for the places it takes a detour and dumps a bunch of hip-hop in the game via its soundtrack. mini-games and loading screens.

On one half it’s inspired by the unrealistically fast gunslingers, the dark gritty humor and the greed driven anti-heroes of the spaghetti western classics.

Oh, yeah.

On the other half it’s inspired by vinyl digging, graffiti spraying, rhyming and the slow drums and jazzy samples of hip hop culture and sound.

Like Afro Samurai, then, only Afro Cowboy.

So you are a drinking, gunslingin', record scratching, cowboy in a Hip-Hop western world. As you can see in the trailer, it even has a cool "luck" system, whereby you collect luck and use it to pull off some cool moves.

Pump this game into my veins.
