Welcome to the world of The Son – A Tale of the Wild West, where a boy must brave all odds to find his mother and reunite what remains of his family. As a boy, you will have to fight your way through 30 increasingly difficult levels on a treacherous journey through the shady monastery, murderous deserts, dark mines and lawless border towns.
The story takes place in a classic spaghetti-western setting: after the death of his father and a savage bandit attack on the family’s farm, El Hijo is, for his own safety, sent to live in a distant monastery. Worried that his mother is following in the raider’s footsteps in his quest for revenge, he decides to escape and soon discovers that things around his new home are rather suspicious.
Use a child’s weapons, toys and mischief to deceive your opponents and inspire other children to stand up against the unfairness that is taking place. Find your way out and uncover a conspiracy with deeper roots than anyone could have imagined.
This unique non-violent stealth game features meticulously handcrafted levels that guide you through the story in our cohesive flow, introducing you to the challenges and threats in your environment, and helping you understand how to overcome them. Various toys, like slingshots, fireworks, and toy soldiers, can be found all over the world and used against monks, bandits, and deputies.
Keep a close eye on your surroundings and try to use it to your advantage. Hide in large pots, duck behind walls, shoot lamps with your scarf, climb in minecarts and more to stay invisible. The stakes get higher and higher, as you expose the shady deals of a sinister group, much larger than its parts.
The boy cherishes his freedom more than anything and will challenge anyone who stands in his way to escape the clutches of a locked life and find their way back to their loving mother.
Expose the bad guys, reunite the family, save the kids, escape! The Son – A Tale of the Wild West is now available on Xbox!
