About El Hijo - A Wild West Tale:
El Hijo - A Wild West Tale is a non-violent game and an exciting story of a desperate child looking for his mother. The boy sneaks past different sorts of suspicious outlaws in a series of diverse western settings.

Instead of violence, this child's imaginative playfulness is used with the help of his toys, which serve to distract his "opponents".

Using the shadows to his advantage is a core element of the game, as the young hero will often have to hide. Various twists on familiar mechanics are often a product of the challenging and increasingly dangerous environments that the 6-year-old must traverse to reach his ultimate goal.

  • Explore dark monasteries, deserts, and frontier towns in a spaghetti-western world
  • Merge with the shadows to hide from your adversaries
  • Solve playfully tricky environmental puzzles
  • Use a fun arsenal of tactical toys to bypass and distract diverse opponent types
