Introducing Rustler (Grand Theft Horse): Coming Soon

Welcome back to Introducing: The article where TBG keep you updated on some of the new and exciting titles on the horizon, today we are taking a look at Rustler, an alternate medieval world, where even the rags of the poorest peasant are more elegant than a t-shirt and jeans. Let’s check it out.

What is Rustler?

Rustler is an open-world, top-down action game paying tribute to classic GTA 2 style and gameplay, fusing it with a historically inaccurate medieval setting. Play as Guy, whose parents were too lazy to give him a proper name.

Experience feudal injustice, witch-hunting, and join big tournaments. Meet valiant yet incredibly stupid knights. Complete a wide variety of twisted missions and quests, or ignore the plot and bring mayhem to the villages and cities.

Travel on foot or steal a horse, fight with a sword or pick a fancy automatic crossbow. All that spiced with inappropriate, Monty Python inspired humour.

Tell us more?

Throw random people off carriages or their horse’s saddle. Punch the court bard’s face to make him play something else. Focus on missions, or ignore them for the sake of pure, uncontrolled rage. But be careful – the guards will give chase, and the more you taunt them, the less likely they are to let you go. Use a wide range of available weapons to defend yourself, from simple branches to sharp spears, heavy swords, crossbows, and even excrement. Remember, training your horse to gracefully leap over obstacles isn’t necessary – just demolish every fence with the weight of its heavy hooves.

Rustlers main Feature:

  • Be a bold, bald thug in a medieval sandbox
    The world of Rustleris filled with humour, anachronisms, and pop culture references. Remember Monty Python? Ever been towed for parking in a “NO HORSE ZONE”? Speaking of horses – what if they were treated like Pokémon?
  • Wreak havoc with top-down, old-school combat
    Use swords, spears, turds, and crossbows. Not efficient enough? Try a holy hand grenade or your horse. Nothing’s deadlier than a galloping set of hooves.
  • Screw everyone over to win half the kingdom
    As a poor peasant, you need to get creative to win the Great Tournament™. Form strange alliances, double-cross your foes, and dig up dinosaur bones in a light, easy-to-understand and hard-to-empathize-with story.
  • Hire bards to aid you musically in battle
    A bard is your sweaty personal radio. He’ll never leave your side, even amidst the bloodiest of conflicts, and he’ll change the song’s dynamic depending on the action. Or, if the tune isn’t to your liking, make him change it by punching him in the face.
  • A lot of horsin’ around
    Shoot cows into the sky, dress up as a guard or Death himself, smoke weed by accident, draw fancy shapes with a ploughing cart, survive a full onslaught from the guards after killing half the city – just some of the crazy things you can do in Rustler.
