Saddle up and defend the town of Willow Creek from nefarious outlaws and city slickers! It all starts when a rancher's daughter goes missing, and it ends at the showdown at Willow Creek, where greed, lust, science, and Mother Nature will face off at high noon.

Showdown at Willow Creek is an interactive western mystery novel where your choices control the story. The game is entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--but powered by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Gamble, seduce, brawl, or shoot your way through Willow Creek, where gunslingers make the laws and everybody has secrets. Will you romance the gambler or the soiled dove (or both)? Will you side with the scientists bringing electricity to the Old West, or with a tribe of Native American Utes? Will you unravel the conspiracy that threatens to tear the town apart, or will you light the fuse to blow it all sky high?

Not a bad little story. I'm not much for westerns but I enjoyed this story. It's a shame it has so far received poor reviews that don't seem very informative or fair. Over all this game is 3 stars but if your new to choice games and not too familiar with westerns or are into them, you will like this read more so, I rated it 4 stars. Plus 4 stars seems more fair for the quality.
I'm not into westerns and I thought the story was too short and very predictable/typical for its genre.

Really felt the need to give this story a review. I’ve read handful of these interactive stories over the course of the last few years, even going back to reread old stories. Just downloaded this story for the first time tonight and genuinely am so impressed with it. The writing is very clean and the interaction is perfect. A lot of the time a lot of authors really get carried away with needing to describe heavy lore/details in these inter-actives and it totally looses its appeal, this story keeps you perfectly engaged with the right amount of story to decision making that you actually feel as though you are a part of its story, not just along for the ride. The author doesn’t force a predetermined character on you and gives you a good amount of options to decide who you want to be and what you stand for. I absolutely encourage it’s creators to continue making interactives/writing, really a fantastic job. Besides that, truly a perfect little western adventure, very fun lighthearted storyline, with interesting characters. Thanks for the read!

The game

The game starts out with you creating the world of your character and you get a choice of a romantic interest. Except the game doesn’t tell you much about them besides their profession and gender despite the great emphasis the rest of the game puts on race. Your partners are not built for you to learn about in any way only to be fluff text if you do desire there is no depth to them you’re better off with just your horse and gun. The plan for the dam sounded so unrealistic that I had hoped it was true and the main plot of the story wasn’t oh hey I don’t understand science this looks evil. The ending only tells the reader that things will go back to the way they were before, how boring I wanted my actions to change something besides mason being in a court case. Honestly I’m a bit salty the game didn’t tell me what happened to Aaron, did the doctor on the train even save him? Also money doesn’t matter at all spend all you want you have no end to your coffers. This was not worth the price.
