Western Press and the rise of the PC party game

Western Press 2

Western Press was a fun little party game I got to play at PAX South (opens in new tab) this year. It's not a complex concept—press buttons faster than your opponent—and while it might not hold the same lasting appeal as something like Towerfall Ascension (opens in new tab) or the up-and-coming Invisigun Heroes (opens in new tab), all these games are indicative or a rising trend in PC games designed for groups of friends to learn quickly and yell loudly about. You can watch my full conversation with Surprise Attack's (opens in new tab) James Kozanecki above.
