Quite rough looking and full of typos, but looks very interesting.  Appears to be a turn-based tactical wargame / roguelike mashup where you control a team of bounty hunters or outlaws and duke it out in the town of "TomeStone."  Have not tried it yet but for the price of FREE I can't turn down an offering of wild west rootin n tootin.   :cowboy:
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

You basically cruise around itch and write up a few lines about obscure indie titles that may appeal to the grogs...how about it?  O0

Here you go Al, but you may have to share with Sir Slash.  :2funny:
