That Lonesome Valley is a short retro-style gay romance game / visual novel about walking, sheepherding, and kissing.

⚠️CONTENT WARNING: 🔞 This game contains (pixel art cartoon) nudity and some gay sex sequences. ⚠️

Jose and Bud are two young men alone in the Wyoming wilderness. What's gonna happen between them? Are they gonna fight? Are they gonna... kiss? Well now, I reckon that's all up to you, cowboy.

GAMEPLAY HINTS

  • You don't have to say what you think he wants you to say.
  • To avoid getting lost, use your map and stay near landmarks like the river. To open your map, click / tap the map icon in the top-left or press [M] key.
  • To get sheep to trust you,  try to get close enough to feed them a carrot (click / tap the FEED button or press [F] key). You may have to use water, hills, or trees to slow / trap the sheep.
  • Sometimes it's better to go back to the flock with just a few sheep. It's harder to bring back a big group of sheep all at once.
  • It doesn't always work out, but you know, that's life.
