Game Information

Available on:PCFeb 7, 2019
Nintendo SwitchFeb 7, 2019

Developer: Memory of God / Lambic Studios

Publisher: Fellow Traveller

Genre: Adventure

One by one, everyone left the once bustling village for the city. Everyone, except Talma. Now approaching the end of her days, she maintains a simple, solitary way of life, surviving, subsisting, tending to her homestead and her goats.

Develop your own personal routine as you care for your farm and your animals. Tend to your goats, make cheese with their milk, collect eggs and cook meals, grow vegetables and barter with the travelling merchant who brings increasingly disturbing letters from your family in the city.

A follow up to the critically acclaimed Where the Goats Are, The Stillness of the Wind is a quiet rumination on life and loss.

FEATURES

Breed and look after your goats, make cheese from their milk, grow vegetables, water your plants, collect eggs, scare off the birds. It’s a hard but simple life of peaceful subsistence.

It's up to you how you spend Talma’s time each day and what your routine will be. Focus on your chores, wander in the desert, reminisce about the past or draw patterns in the dirt.

Trade cheese and other items in return for hay for your goats, seeds to plant, fables, exotic items and shotgun shells, whilst exchanging conversation with the travelling merchant, your only human interaction.

The travelling merchant brings letters from your family and friends and with them a view into a city that feels both very far away and as if it threatens to wash away the world you know.

The Stillness of the Wind tells a moving tale of an elderly woman living alone on a small, isolated farm.

I hope by now it is clear that The Stillness of the Wind is not a traditionally “fun” game – it doesn’t have the compulsion or reward of something like Stardew Valley. That being said, I would still recommend giving it a chance

The Stillness of the Wind is not the easiest game to recommend, really being more of a curiosity piece than anything else, but if you are prepared to look beyond its limitations, there is a melancholic story here to be discovered.
