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.

Perceptive Podcast: A Discussion on Arcen Games

Chris Park discusses A Valley Without Wind 1 & 2 and touches on Shattered Haven as well in this week's Perceptive Podcast: A Discussion on Arcen Games.

Valley 2 Beta .710 "More Monsters At Last" Released!

This one has a few tweaks and bugfixes, but mainly it's focused on adding more monsters.  Prior to this release we had 13 of the target 114ish monsters implemented.  Now we've added 5 more. 

The effect that this has on the game in terms of the feeling of variety as you explore around is pretty substantial, but that's only going to get compounded as we add more and more monsters.  We're going to try to make huge strides on the monsters this month, so there's going to be a lot of releases like this with lots of monsters.  Exciting times!


Valley 2 Beta .709 "Water And Wind" Released!

This one is mostly smaller improvements to the game, but this sort of thing adds up.  We're not going to be focusing on this sort of smaller polish to the exclusion of new content (like enemies and so forth) for very much longer, but we had a backlog after the holiday break and are trying to clear that out reasonably well.

It's nice to be fully getting back into the swing of things after the holiday break, I have to say.  Still, with three projects going on at the moment in the studio, I'm being pulled a lot of directions for getting everyone ramped back up.  I would have wanted to add some new enemies in this release, but I just didn't have time.  I expect to have time for a lot of that sort of thing next week, which is exciting for me.

More to come soon.  Enjoy!

These are standard updates that you can download through the in-game updater itself, if you already have any version of the game.  If you have the beta on Steam, it will automatically update for you.  When you launch the game, you'll see the notice of the update having been found if you're connected to the Internet at the time. If you don't have the standalone game, you can download that here.  If you already own the first game, just use your existing license key to unlock the sequel for free!
