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.

Valley 2 Official 1.003 "But The Third One Stayed Up!" Released!

This one addresses a few minor issues that had collected, including a couple of annoying things with the ending cutscene of the game. The largest thing overall in this one is that Swamp Castles now work properly in actually granting your NPCs speed bonuses on the world map.


This is a standard update 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!

Valley 2: Reviews, Podcasts, and Let's Play Videos

As we let Valley 2 breathe a bit, our focus shifts to Shattered Haven's official launch later this month (March 18th, to be exact). Before that, however, we wanted to highlight all the coverage Valley 2 (and company) has seen in the past month -- specifically the reviews, interviews, and let's plays.

Thanks to all these folks for taking time to play the game, and/or chat with the team.

Chris joined the GameSpot GamePlay podcast for its 30th episode to discuss both Valley 2 and PS4 (among other topics)

Pablo, Josh, and I chatted with The Koalition, keeping it together for a solid 45 minutes!

Chris was also on Just Press Start's podcast to discuss a variety of gaming topics.

Game Wisdom's talk with Chris is centered on Valley 2 itself, including an in depth discussion on the design aspects.
