Windforge is a game for PC that combines Contra-like gameplay with the freedom and building of Minecraft. Build airships and explore hostile skies in an ever-changing Steampunk world.

“We are really excited by the reception we have had to the previews of the game so far at industry conferences and by the Steam Greenlight community where we are currently in 98% of the way into the top 100 games,” says Jean-Sylvain Sormany, CEO of Snowed In Studios.

The game focuses on empowering the player with freedom and creativity. Story-driven and challenges based on the environment provide goals for players to harness that creativity. Windforge is an RPG without barriers.

The game takes place in the world of Cordeus, which is dependent on Sky Whale oil. The once-abundant population of Sky Whales is dwindling and faces exctinction, and a new source of energy must be found.

Evan Hahn, Creative Director at Snowed In Studios: “Windforge is the most ambitious game I’ve worked on so far. We’ve been working really hard to create a unique Steampunk world that gives players the freedom to explore, create and destroy anything they want. So far the response to game has been amazing, which is really fueling us in our last push.”

The game’s Kickstarter campaign will be in progress until December 6, 2013.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
