  • Summary: The Real Texas is an action RPG taking place in Strange, Texas: a Kafka-esque parody stuck halfway between modern-day America and olden-days, RPG England.

    The Real Texas is an incredibly smart game, particularly in how it deals with large metaphysical ideas and conveys them to the player. The dialogue is well written and the humor is one of game's brightest aspects. Although not all of the ideas work out perfectly, this is certainly an experience that is hard to find anywhere else and is certainly worth trying out.

    It's possible to complete version 1.3-chili of The Real Texas in just under 20 hours--longer for fans of classical music and optional quests.

    If you have the patience to overcome its quirks, The Real Texas is a charming and joyous mixture of ye olde and yee-haw. [Oct 2012, p.109]

    A strange and effortlessly charming game that rewards those who take the time to parse its various idiosyncrasies. [Feb 2013, p.81]

    The developer of The Real Texas was hell-bent on creating an ode to classics, while missing perfection and consistency. The humor is lame enough to actually annoy you and graphically it fails to do anything special. That a few of the best games ever, like Zelda or Ultima, are used as a source of inspiration, doesn't turn this into a good game.
