John Cooper was hired for a simple job; to put a stop to the repeated raids on the local railroad. Easily enough, the wily, sharp shooting Cooper apprehends one of the wanted thugs, a fellow named Inigo Sanchez, and begins to travel back to town for his reward.
Along the way Sanchez speaks of the king of the bandits, a villain called "El Diablo" who seeks to unite the frontier underworld in a unified assault against the good people of Cooper's New Mexico home. Though skeptical by both nature and necessity, Cooper begins to wonder if there might be some truth in Sanchez' ramblings.
As they progress through the western adventure, Cooper and Sanchez are joined by four other characters, as diverse in personality as they are in the special talents and abilities that they bring to the group. The unlikely band must discover the mysteries behind the figure known only as El Diablo before it is too late.
Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive is designed to present a rich narrative through an immersing, multimedia presentation that uses scenery, sounds, and full-motion video to advance the plot through certain key stages. The game offers an isometric perspective on hand-designed scenery as players guide the team of unlikely allies through real-time missions that challenge strategic thinking and move the plot forward. ~ T.J.
