This is a great WIP RPG. I love the topdown mode that goes into side scrolling mode, just like Zelda II on the NES (my first NES game). And the quirky jokes.

I was a bit disappointed nothing happened when I reached the isle... I guess I have to wait for the final version. :)

Hey thanks for taking the time to play my game and comment ! Yeah, there is about 2/3 of the story left to do. Spoiler: You'll have to find some boots somewhere.

I will also have to figure out how sounds work before version 1 and maybe add a basic fight system for version 2.

Thanks again and stay tuned !

I also had the Zelda II feeling. I have to say i didn't played Zelda II much b/c i didn't like it that much but i had fun playing this game :)

I'm eager to play the rest of the game/story.

Thanks for commenting Kozie ! I plan on finishing the game before the end of next week.
Thanks again for playing my game !

At the risk of sounding like a sheep, Zelda 2 is what came to mind when you go to the side scrolling view :) Looking really cool, I hope you keep working on it!

P#35904 2017-01-17 05:37


Thanks Radcore for the comment :)
UPDATE: 3/4 of the story now completed.
Still have to learn how sound/music works before release :/

P#35906 2017-01-17 09:03


The story have been completed :)
Let me know what you think.
I'll add sound soon.

P#36048 2017-01-18 20:30


Added sound effects !
The game is completed :D
Let me know what you think
Enjoy !

I liked it! I guess I finished it. It's like Atari Adventure and Zelda had a baby. I love the gameplay and only wish the game was longer because I want to play it more.

@greentiger: Thanks for playing and commenting ! Make sure you talk to characters before and after they give you items for more quirky dialogs.

small update to correct endgame skipping bug and waterfall volume

P#42998 2017-08-01 09:59 ( Edited 2017-08-01 10:14)


I created the very first mod of Go West: Go West Propose Edition !
UPDATE: She said yes !! :D :D

P#46224 2017-11-13 09:23 ( Edited 2017-11-16 08:37)


corrected wait() function and I made the paths larger between map sections

P#46286 2017-11-14 12:06


@bryce6 thanks !

P#46625 2017-11-23 10:54


Hooray! It's the first RPG that I've managed to finish in my entire life :-)

Great game BTW. It seems like you mashed Zelda, Zelda II and Metroid in a single, fun experience.

P#46656 2017-11-24 06:15 ( Edited 2017-11-24 06:16)


@Cesco thank you for taking time to play the game and comment ! Make sure you also try the "Propose Edition" !

P#46657 2017-11-24 07:22


Hey, that's one of my houses! Looks good in there with the green grass and blue sky! At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I've always been a sucker for the top-down / side scroller mashups like Zelda II.

Good work!

P#46663 2017-11-24 15:40


@Parlor ! Yes indeed :) I copied your awesome house design, and more, (pixel by pixel) from your game Stroll (as mentioned in the header section of the code) :)
I like to code and experiment with pico-8 but I am in no way a competent graphic designer. It's great that Pico-8 let you "steal" awesome graphics assets from other games (with mentions of course). So thanks for your great help with my humble little game !
