The Creators Of AI War Bring You... A 2D sidescroller without a linear path. An action game with tactical combat and citybuilding. An adventure game that lets you free-roam a vast, procedurally-generated world. A Valley Without Wind defies genre stereotypes. Unlike other procedurally-generated games, you also get a logical progression in difficulty, plus helpful tips and checklists to guide your travels (should you need them). Choose for yourself how to prepare to face the vastly stronger Overlord. Complete a variety of missions to earn new spells, and/or roam the wilds to uncover secret missions and stashes of magical crafting loot. Customize your characters with unique combinations of enchants and spells that change how you move, jump, and fight. Or rescue people and bring them back to your settlement so that they can then be sent on dispatch missions; you don't have to carry the burden of your fledgling civilization alone! You choose how to play, and the world adapts around you.
The wait for A Valley Without Wind 1.2 will be much shorter than 1.1.

Only a few new beta updates for A Valley Without Wind this week, but they add and/or improve upon quite a vast amount of stuff. So much in fact, that we're already gearing up for 1.2 official sometime in the first part of July. If you're wondering how we got from 1.1 to 1.2 this fast, following the lengthy 1.0 to 1.1 development stint, Chris goes into detail in the latest beta update summary.
In other indie/self-promotion news, I've kicked off a new video interview/preview series on Indie Game Magazine called Indie-View (best name ever right?). I play host and Kevin Harland, the man responsible for putting together AVWW's trailers, does the shooting/editing. Our first episode stars Matt Gilgenbach of 24 Caret Games and his game Retro/Grade. We're hoping to have a new segment with a different developer and game once or twice a month, we'll see how it goes.
