Fellow Traveller and Memory of God have announced that The Stillness of the Wind will release on Nintendo Switch this week, a quiet game of life and loss.
You play as Talma, an elderly goat farmer who must continue to tend to her crops even while the world ending around her. She lives a simple but solitary way of life, surviving, subsisting, and tending to both her homestead and goats.
In the game, you will develop your personal routine and barter with the traveling merchant who, for whatever reason, brings increasingly disturbing letters from your family in the city.
“Nostalgia, a sense of loss and home are the main themes running throughout the narrative of the game,” explains Memory of God’s Coyan Cardenas.
“It’s my hope that players develop a meta-nostalgia for how things were—a kind of literal manifestation of ‘golden memories.’ For me, The Stillness of the Wind is about developing a more connected sense of ourselves.”
Fellow Traveller founder and managing director Chris Wright, adds: “The Stillness of the Wind embodies Fellow Traveller’s principles of exploring what narrative games can be. This simple, aesthetically beautiful game gives total control to the player to create their own tale of Talma.”
The Stillness of the Wind will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on February 7th, priced at $12.99.
