Whispers in the West is an online co-op murder mystery game set in the far reaches of the Wild West. Developed and published by Infinite Whys.
You and your friends take on the roles of the Sheriff, the Deputy, the Cowboy or the Outlaw. You will work collaboratively and debate amongst yourselves to deduce the true perpetrator among the townsfolk.
In Whispers in the West the four playable characters each offer a unique skill, which leads to different interactions with the town’s residents. Each player’s discoveries will be crucial to uncovering the truth. Over the course of a number of in-game days, you and your friends need to collaborate, look for clues and finally piece the puzzle together.
- The Streets of Brimstone
Discover the various locations of Brimstone and explore its depths for clues! From the bustling, grimy saloon, to the dust-bowl, tumbleweed-ridden main street. There are heaps of secrets to unearth, which will leave you and your friends perplexed as you piece the mystery together.
- The Residents of Brimstone
Will you be able to tell the good from the bad and the ugly? You will meet the good-for-nothing Mayor hidden away in his studious office, a withered Saloon Owner gossiping away as he shares rumours with his customers, and a high-strung Blacksmith hammering away at his anvil to name but a few.
Don’t be fooled, however, a culprit lurks among them!
- Explore a stylized game world
Being a side-scrolling RPG, the game features classic point & click gameplay. While this is a well-tested formula, our non-linear story engine and the multiplayer feature make it stand apart from similar games.
- Fast travel to locations
Meet the various characters around the town and question them to gain further insight into the town’s history, characters and lore.
- Interrogate the residents
Who knows what shady past or hidden romance may have occurred behind the scenes! The further you investigate a character, the closer you’ll come to bringing to light secrets they may withhold about other residents.
- Inspect the clues
A bloody murder weapon is a sure bet to lead you to the truth, or could it be a red herring to throw you off the scent? No doubt a discarded wanted poster holds a hot lead on a potential suspect. However, you investigate, a keen eye and quick wit is essential when diving into the rabbit hole.
- Utilize your unique skill
Using all the tools at your team’s disposal is essential to solving the mystery within the time limit. Don’t be a lone wolf.
- Be aware of the time limit
Keep an eye on the clock as you’ll only have a short time to investigate and allocate tasks amongst your party wisely.
- Review the investigation
Scrutinize the findings in your case file and determine the truth amongst the lies with your team. In the end, you can only settle on one culprit… Be warned, things may get heated!
Whispers in the West will be released on PC. However at present there is no release date. Should you want to try the game out, there is a demo available here.

Can’t shoot straight, don’t understand maps, shocking memory &…. what was I saying….! 🤔
I am a Content Creator who also Live Streams. I love playing video games, talking about video games and I also write about them as I am an editor for a gaming magazine.
What genre of game do I play? Indie games & story driven games mostly.
Other than that my time is taken up being a Mamma. Yes, I am half Italian and you will find the odd Italian word or phrase being dropped into my streams. Particularly when I become excited 😎
Too many games not enough time!
