PC Gamer on Weird West:
https://www.pcgamer.com/weird-west-is-a-dark-rpg-made-up-of-five-interconnected-stories/

Info:
- Raphael Colantonio is the lead on this game w/ Wolf Eye Studios (a while ago, he founded Arkane Studios back...before recently leaving).
- Rafael Colantonio's influences here for Weird West are: Deus Ex, Thief & Dishonored (immersive sims).
- Rafael's other influences here: Fallout & Ultima 7 (old-school CRPG's with isometric viewpoints).
- This game-world is a mix of Old West setting, Deadlands & Stephen King's Dark Tower.
- Combat is similar to twin-stick shooter type of games, but also with RPG elements on top of it.
- There are stealth & sound systems here, similar to that of Deus Ex & Colantonio's other games (from Arkane).
- Game will be more determined by your actions in real-time than your stats.
- You have a story with a few interconnected main quests here.
- Each character in your own part has their own story.
- So once you finish one character's main story, you move onto the next one.
- So once you start the next character's story, you might need to find other party member(s) again...
- ...as other party members might have went off on their own, once their own story was finished.
- Death is an element of the game. If party members die and you don't revive they, they're dead...
- ...But b/c of the supernatural elements, they could come back at supernatural beings (undead, ghosts, etc).
- Some enemies you kill can return and can come after you, as supernatural beings.
