Your sentence to death miraculously failed. Still stuck in the gallows' rope, a new power started to emerge in you.

Explore the world, use new tools at the tip of your rope, meet wacky and colorful characters along your path, and avoid the deadly dangers of the West.


  • Arrow keys/WASD to move
  • Mouse to move rope
  • Left click to use the item at the tip of the rope
  • Space/Esc. to pause

This game was initially made for the Ludum Dare 47 Compo, with the theme "Stuck in a Loop". I then completed it into this demo, that is roughly the first half of the planned final game.

Fantastic game, love all the puzzles and little secret areas! For the life of me  though can't figure out the password with the lights at the mansion. Hope you finish this game soon

Thank you! For the password, let's say that this is a particular roman numeral :P

The game should be finished by the end of the year, or even next week if all goes well.

Nice game. The rope arm idea is great.
