Trailer The Son – A Wid West Tale
The son is an exciting spaghetti-western stealth game, in which you guide a 6-year-old boy on his quest to find his mother.
At the age of six, The Son must always escape the dangers of his world. As you overcome its challenges, you will gain self-confidence and cunning and with it, more ideas to overcome your enemies. On your journey, you will find yourself in a remote monastery, a harsh and unforgiving stretch of desert, and a border town full of crime and villainy.
The journey begins when a farmer and her son, El Hijo, are attacked by bandits who raze their farm to the ground. The mother decides to leave The Son in an isolated monastery to protect him. However, The Son decides that monastic life is not for him and decides to escape. The Son is a stealthy, non-violent game. Instead, the violence is exchanged with the mischievous and playful play of a young child. Shadow play is at the core of the game and The Son will often have to hide. Without unnecessarily adding new mechanics, the game naturally extends as variations on existing mechanics are phased in and combined with each other to increase the challenge. These twists in family mechanics are often a product of the varied and increasingly dangerous environments that The Son must go through to reach his ultimate goal.
