Discover the secrets hidden in a vast desert, take a hot bath, and maybe grow a pumpkin.

This game is my response to the out-of-bounds adventures I had with some friends in Red Dead Redemption 2 Online (with some other ideas thrown in). You can read about those adventures here.

The game now also includes an experimental online multiplayer mode! Press O to activate it.

There is also a local co-op mode which you can activate with P (requires two xbox controllers)

This is very cool!

Thank you!


This game is so nice I made an itch.io account just to say how nice it is! 

I'm not a gamer by any means but I really like taking the controller from my brother when he's playing red dead redemption and just exploring. So this game is right up my alley 

The to-do list tasks are kind of tricky! It's also not easy to navigate back to the checkpoint/campfire. It's definitely more challenging than I expected which is a fun surprise! 

Really pretty with simple graphics that are so pleasing to the eye. I can play this game for ages. It's so relaxing!

Thank you! I'm glad you like it!

Just to note that there are more campfires scattered around, so if you carry on exploring you'll likely find another one (check for smoke on the horizon).

Nice lands.  I really like the feel of the distant mountains, fogged off to a pleasant blue.  :)



Is taking a bath supposed to grant temporary flight powers, or did I find a bug...




Found the easy way to do the 2k roll:


I see that you found the block too


This game is absolutely fantastic! I find it very relaxing. I gave the 2km roll challenge a shot: 


Thanks! Nice 2km roll attempt. There is an ... easier way though...


i spent about 45 minutes walking through this, what a wonderful thing. the sense of scale is really something else, and i will soon go back and try to find all the other parts of the list i wasn't able to get to this time.

do you think you could release an update that allows us to toggle off specifically that one really high-pitched environment noise that seems fairly common? i wasnt ever able to figure out quite what it was meant to represent, but it's really piercing and almost hurt to hear - i tended to walk a wide circle to avoid it whenever it triggered. i know there's a mute audio button but i love all the other audio in the game!

Hmm, maybe. Does the sound occur in this video?

And if so at what point?
Most of the sounds are of real insects and birds. I'm guessing the offending sound is a cricket or cycada.


Yep, at 20 seconds.


Ok thanks. I think that's some sort of insect (not sure exactly what). It's a live recording anyway. I'll think about adding the option you asked for, but no promises.


Ok I've removed that particular track from the game.


Thanks!  Wow that sound was super loud and painful.

This is a really cool thing you've made!

I went back in and had another 45 minutes of goooood exploration time. thank you so much for this




This game is his afterlife.
