'El Hijo: A Wild West Tale' (ALL) Gets PC/Stadia Date - Trailer

El Hijo: A Wild West Tale is a non-violent, spaghetti-western stealth game where the player takes the role of a six-year old boy, searching the Wild Wild West for his mother.

A fresh spin on the classic spaghetti western genre, El Hijo is a fun and family-friendly outlaw action-adventure everyone can enjoy.

The journey begins when a farmer and her son El Hijo are attacked by bandits who raze their farm to the ground. The mother decides to leave El Hijo at a secluded monastery in order to protect him. However, El Hijo decides that the monastic life is not for him and decides to escape.

As a six-year old, El Hijo must always sneak past the dangers of his world. As he overcomes his challenges, he gains self-confidence and cunning and with it more schemes to get past his foes. On his journey he will find himself in a remote monastery, a harsh and unforgiving stretch of desert and a frontier town rife with crime and villainy.

El Hijo is a non-violent stealth game featuring meticulously hand-crafted levels guiding you through the story in a coherent flow, introducing challenges and threats from your surroundings, and helping you understand how to overcome them.


Use the weapons of a child, toys, and mischief to deceive your adversaries and inspire other children to revolt against the ongoing injustice. Find your way out and uncover a conspiracy with roots far deeper than anyone could have imagined.

Combining easy to learn, but hard to master stealth mechanics with fast-paced, thrilling action sequences and a dark, yet hopeful story, this unique experience is one that true desperados won't want to miss out on. Guide the child hero through an immersive and interconnected world without getting spotted and caught by his adversaries.

Shoot small rocks at lamps, create noisy distractions using fireworks or toy soldiers, and more to outsmart different types of opponents, and stay in the shadows on your quest to liberate yourself and other children from the chains of an evil syndicate and reunite with your mother.

Key Features:

  • Survive in the Wild West with the cleverness of a young hero
  • Explore dark monasteries, deserts and boomtowns in a spaghetti-western world
  • Merge with the shadows to hide from the lawless
  • Solve playfully tricky environmental puzzles
  • Use a playful arsenal of tactical toys to bypass and distract diverse desperadoes
  • Inspire other children to join you on the path to freedom
  • Enjoy the gripping storyline of a brave son searching for his mother

El Hijo: A Wild West Tale is coming to PC/Mac (Steam and GOG) and Google Stadia on Dec. 3, 2020 for $19.99, €19.99, £17.99, followed by PS4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One at a later time.
