'Rustler' Gets Steam Early Access Date - Trailer

Rustler is an open-world, top-down action game paying tribute to the good old GTA 2 style and gameplay, fusing it with a historically inaccurate medieval setting.

Imagine GTA 2 or San Andreas, but set in medieval times, where you steal horses instead of cars. Use elegant swords as an alternative to worn baseball bats, or crossbows in place of an assault rifle. Enter the merciless criminal underworld, where a local Bard is your private human radio, with all the top rap songs available. Rustler, the totally historically inaccurate top-down action game, is in the works and will serve you a megadose of Monty Python inspired humor as soon as it gets developed.

Embark on a mission to find the Holy Grail, help the nobleman in becoming a gangster rapper, fire someone who believes the Earth is round from a trebuchet, or choose others from the huge range of absurd tasks available in-game. You can also ignore the missions and just simply take the sword, spear, crossbow, or whatever you have at your disposal to start the madness in your town by challenging all the knights in the realm. How long will you survive being under the city’s militia radar.

Play as Guy, whose parents apparently 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 don’t give a damn about the plot and bring mayhem in the villages and cities. Choose to go on foot, or by a stolen horse. Fight with a sword or pick a fancy automatic crossbow. All that, spiced up with an inappropriate Monty Python inspired sense of humor.

Carjacking is so this century. It’s time to go back to our roots.

Pimp your horse, launch cows at your enemies, and live the hilariously unhinged medieval life that you deserve.

Modus Games and Games Operators, along with developer Jutsu Games, announced Rustler is coming to Steam Early Access on February 18, 2021.

Rustler’s world is filled with humor, 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?

Key Features:

  • Be a bold, bald thug in a medieval sandbox: The world of Rustler is filled with humor, 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 plowing cart, survive a full onslaught from the guards after killing half the city – just some of the crazy things you can do in Rustler.

Rustler is under development for PC (Steam), its release date will be announced shortly.
