what's this about, pardner?

GULCH GUARDIANS is an adorable roguelike deckbuilder with an Old West drawl and a truly unhinged class system including jobs like Cactus, Gym Rat, Chemist, Gunslinger, CEO, and Corrupt Sheriff -- and that's just the demo.

Players build and manage a ragtag team of varmints to defend their Gulch against an invading army via complex and dynamic turn-based autobattles, and use cards to change the outcome of each encounter.

Gulch Guardians is a solo project by cryy22, who is the creator of all the design, programming, art, music and UX for this game. Originally started as a long-term project to work on between game jams, GG found a small but dedicated audience on and took on a life of its own.

Gulch Guardians will be cry's first commercial game project.
