West of Dead Open Beta

The open beta of West of Dead is now underway on Steam, offering 10 days of testing for this top-down action shooter set in a western-themed purgatory. Here's the previously released Announcement Trailer with a look at the game and its stylized graphics. This post explains how to collect a beta key through this website while also offering more details:
Love is for the living and you are dead, my friend. But no one said dying would be easy! Welcome to Purgatory, the wild west inferno for the damned in West of Dead, the fast-paced 360 cover based twin-stick shooter is running a beta starting Valentine’s Day! Because nothing says ‘I love you’ like hot demonic lead!

West of Dead stars Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy) as the voice of main protagonist William Mason, a dead man awakened with only the memory of a figure in black, his existence setting into motion a chain of events that have truly mythic consequences.

Evolving the twin-tick shooter genre by introducing tactical cover usage, West of Dead throws you into the unknown procedurally generated hunting grounds of Purgatory, where your skills will be put to the test as you shoot, dodge and slide your way through the fetid, hell-spawned filth of the underworld. Love ain’t always pretty. Or has a pulse.
