Fill your boots or fill your grave as you take up arms against the weird and wild west
Launching today, Ritual: Crown of Horns fires out a volley of tactically weird western action on both PC and Switch after spending the last few months in Early Access on Steam. With the help of some wonderful user feedback, the team has managed to get the guns oiled, the incantations perfected, and the dusters laundered, meaning the game is finally ready to head out on that full release trail. Early players of Ritual: Crown of Horns have been praising its dark and dusty atmospheric presentation and focus on gut instinct and careful play over simple spraying and praying.
Working with Draw Distance was pure pleasure and so is releasing Ritual: Crown of Horns to the public. The game has underwent huge improvements from the latest Steam Early Access build thanks to the tireless work of the developer who strived for anything but perfection. I feel they nailed the feeling of being a bad-ass gunslinger in the Weird West and I hope people who love action games will fall in love with the game as we did.

Players on Nintendo Switch can also expect a patch very soon, which will add the support for French, German, Italian, Spanish and Russian languages to the game.
About Ritual: Crown of Horns
Ritual: Crown of Horns is a slaughterhouse: a fast-paced action game set in an alternate Wild West, a demonic version of a hellish frontier. This arcade-inspired title unravels a tale about an unlikely duo: a bounty hunter who comes back from beyond the grave, yearning to exact revenge on his killers and a witch who aids him with a series of powerful rituals to further her own agenda.
Push back hordes of enemies, while the witch performs her ritual. Work a varied arsenal of firearms to your advantage: mindfully swapping between weapons and spells. Unlock new tools and powerful items which boost your gunslingers stats and changes their look. Travel throughout the Weird West picking your missions and planning future unlocks to finally exact your revenge!
Ritual: Crown of Horns is a skill based game, where split-second decisions and planning on the go are more powerful than button mashing and throwing yourself mindlessly at enemies.
