The Bar7 group has released a Myth II: Soulblighter Wild West conversion. For those who may not know, a conversion is a set of maps/levels with all new characteristics, in this case, the theme is the Wild West. This conversion looks to be very fun! According to the Bar7 group:
"You fixin' to die old and gray, tired and whimpering with two bits to your name and only cold gruel to suck out of your empty stinking gum holes? Listen up pardner, Wyatt Earp is roundin' up a posse and headin' up to the town of Hog Wallow, he's going to take down Cold Chuck Johnny and his boys. Gonna string 'em up or shoot 'em down. There's 20 dollars gold and a name to be made fer yerself by hitchin' up with 'em."
This news reaches you while you are with a branding crew working for old Jeb Thompson, a mean SOB who still hasn't paid you for the 3 weeks hard work you gave him. 16 hours a day of roasting your hands over branding coals. Sick of breaking your back and aching for adventure you saunter up to old Jeb and bury your scarred, burnt fist deep into his guts as hard as you can. "Paid in full you old bastard" you mutter as you step over his curled and gurgling form. You ride back into town and sign up for the adventure of a lifetime and the next morning you find yourself in the town of Hog Wallow, armed and willing to die for a cause...
