Welcome to the Banana Western 

The Chimp With The Brown Hat is a science-fiction Western about a chimpanzee who wakes up in the desert in the Old West circa 1880 with a robotic hand, but no idea of who he is or where he came from. He rides from town to town trying to figure out the mystery of who he is and how he is connected to the space-worms that are attacking the surrounding villages.

The face of a chimpanzee, the mind of a man, and the heart of an outlaw.

Fighting bandits and space-worms in the Old West.

Now this chimp finds himself face-to-face with the Beeker Boys and the fate of the entire town of Lanefare resting on his shoulders.

Inspired by the Spaghetti Westerns from directors like Sergio Leone, this is the introduction of the Banana Western a story that must be told!
