A Valley Without Wind

The Creators Of AI War Bring You...

A 2D sidescroller without a linear path. An action game with tactical combat and strategic planning. 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 arcane rewards, or roam the wilds to uncover secret missions and stashes of magical 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, recruiting them to help you in return.
You choose how to play, and the world adapts around you.

Features

  • Travel alone or with friends across an ever-expanding world of dangerous creatures, powerful magic, high technology, and mysteries.
  • You have choice. The world of Environ is procedurally generated, and lets you go anywhere you see -- including right into the overlord's keep at any time. (Good luck with that.)
  • Environ is endless. When you save one continent from an overlord, a larger and more complex continent appears.
  • The game adapts to how you play: as you demonstrate your proficiency, monsters upgrade accordingly. Killed 100 bats? Okay, time for... bats on fire!
  • Crazy amounts of character customization. Combine a multitude of spells, enchants, and equipment to create specialized character builds.
  • Play as a long line of brave adventurers. It's not a question of IF your character is going to die, but WHEN. Any character that dies is permanently lost, but you keep all your inventory, enchants, and general progress in the game.
  • Become a community leader. Rescue NPCs, have them join your settlement, and construct buildings for them -- they may return the favor and help you.
  • Be a clever problem-solver. Challenges have more than one solution, each with its own pros and cons. You get to figure things out rather than just jumping through a set of hoops.
  • Difficulty levels give exactly the challenge you want, from casual to hardcore on both platforming and combat independently.
  • New updates are arriving all the time packed with additional content, improvements, and more.

The game has hit version 1.0 and is available now via Steam, the Arcen Store, and other digital distributors.

There won't be a patch to "fix" the graphics. Instead Arcen Games has planned a Art Revamp for November and it will be free.

When I posted that comment they hadn't said it was going to be a AVWW2. They only said it was a art revamp that later on they announced it was going to be a sequel :).

I think AVWW will keep it's graphics, and the new graphics are for the sequal.

Good game, but I got a problem.
My character is crouching permanently. I cannot climb up ladders, etc.
The problem is that something is giving out Gamepad Commands.
If i want to clear the Gamepad Key from "S" it returns instantly.
Is there any way to force the gamepad off?

I dont have my Joystick plugged in, checked for other inputs.

Try switching the in-game profile from the 360 controller to the Logitech. See if that helps.

How can I do that, found no Option for that. Tried to change the buttons for the Xbox Controller. But still crouching permanently.
