Weird West is an action RPG set in the wild west. Rather than history, though, the game is heavily inspired by folklore and supernatural elements. Players can choose from a number of characters with distinct approaches to combat and questing, following their "journey" and changing the game world through their actions. The game is a simulated sandbox environment, and the story adapts to players' actions as they go through each character's campaign.
Here's a description of Weird West from the game's Steam page.
Discover a dark fantasy reimagining of the Wild West where lawmen and gunslingers share the frontier with fantastical creatures.

Each journey is unique and tailored to the actions taken - a series of high stakes adventures where everything counts and the world reacts to the choices you make. Form a posse or venture forth alone into an otherworldly confines of the Weird West and make each legend your own.
