Indie label Fellow Traveller and developer Memory of God today announced that The Stillness of the Wind, a quiet game of life and loss, will be available to purchase on PC, AppStore and Nintendo Switch from 7th Feb 2019.
Players are invited to step into the shoes of Talma, an elderly goat farmer, as she continues to tend to her crops despite the world ending around her. She maintains a simple, solitary way of life, surviving, subsisting, and tending to her homestead and her goats. Develop your own personal routine and barter with the travelling merchant who brings increasingly disturbing letters from your family in the city.
Coyan Cardenas, AKA Memory of God says: “Nostalgia, a sense of loss and home are the main themes running throughout the narrative of the game. It’s my hope that players develop a meta-nostalgia for how things were—a kind of literal manifestation of ‘golden memories’.” He continues, “For me, The Stillness of the Wind is about developing a more connected sense of ourselves.”
Chris Wright, founder and manager director of Fellow Traveller, adds: “The Stillness of the Wind embodies Fellow Traveller’s principles of exploring what narrative games can be. This simple, aesthetically beautiful game gives total control to the player to create their own tale of Talma.”
