Action 2020

This Land is My Land is an action stealth game developed by Game-Labs. The title takes you to the Wild West, and puts you in the shoes of an native American warrior, who is struggling to protect the land of his ancestors from an invasion of the European colonizers. In the game you observe the action from behind the hero’s back as you roam across its open world. Each mission can be completed in multiple different ways, but most of them require guile and stealth. That’s because the opponents are much more numerous and better equipped than the player, hence, direct confrontations usually end with the hero’s untimely death. At the same time, the gameplay is very dynamic. The player’s successes and failures have impact on how cities develop and how the colonization proceeds. Besides, many of the game’s elements, such as camp locations or guards’ patrol routes, are set randomly, which makes each challenge unpredictable.
