El Hijo- A Wild West Tale: New mechanics to be added to existing ones to increase the challenge
An exciting spaghetti-western stealth game, the game will see the player relying on the mischievous, playfulness of a young child. Using the shadows to his advantage is the core element of the game as “El Hijo”, the player will often have to hide. The developers have planned that, without needlessly adding new mechanics.
The gameplay of the game will be extended naturally, as variations of existing mechanics are gradually introduced and then combined to increase the challenge. These twists on familiar mechanics are often a product of the varied, increasingly dangerous environments that “El Hijo” must traverse to reach his ultimate goal. The game also has a gripping storyline about a brave son searching for his lost mother.
The game is currently available on Switch, PS4, Xbox, Stadia, and Steam for $19.99 USD. The iOS and Android releases are set to be priced at $9.99 USD. There are huge expectations from Handy Games, as they are the publishers of some famous mobile games such as SpongeBob SquarePants: The Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated and One Hand Clapping.
