The early development stages of the new game “Whispers in the West” are now coming to an end, and the time to claim the rewards of supporting the team is soon to end.
 
The campaign, focused on providing a wild-west murder mystery game, launched off the back of the Steam Next Fest in June 2022 with a goal of $3,614, has raised $2,004, over half of their goal, and, with a supportive community and enthusiastic developer team, it looks like the game will be riding into town soon.
 
“Whispers in the West” is a wild west themed point-and-click mystery, featuring original artwork, music, and storyline, first conceptualised in July 2021, and followed up by a demo on steam less than a year later. The game has seen attention from streamers on Twitch, with the game being streamed in America, Europe, Asia and Oceania, and has been a part of the recently-concluded Tiny Teams Steam festival, celebrating “micro studios and massive ideas”.
 
Since the demo release in June, the game has drawn very positive reviews from the players. Over 80% of the playerbase said that they enjoyed the game, and would recommend it to others, according to survey results. And on average, one in every 5 visitors to their Steam page would add the game to their Wishlist.
