Windward

Post by Endymion on Sat Apr 16, 2016 2:29 pm


To put it in simple, it is a random game about pirates.

The Windward is a sailing themed game with procedurally generated levels and worlds. You are the captain of a ship and you're free to do anything you want. Trade and do quest, or combat pirates and hostile factions. By trading you can help upgrading the ports. Advanced ports sells better items and gives better prices for quests. In the other hand the stronger enemies drops better items when you shinking them (if you can sink them). The goal is to survive and advance.

You start with a small boat and basically you can't do anything serious with that stylish wood. Other than good items you can get better and better ships. Compared to your starter boat, you can buy even ten times larger capital ships with that many cannons there is no other ship can whitstand. The ships has stats that gives them character. Some of them has good firepower but lacks defense, others are fast but has low accuracy. The stats affects the effectiveness of your abilities as well the ships behavior with the different circumstances.

Be a faithfull captain of the Queen, or a cold-blooded pirate king. You can get epic situation no matter what you chose.

The game offers online multiplayer too. The real thing is that, it is exactly the same as the singleplayer. You can do the missions or the battles with your friend. You can help hunt better items for your friend. The character you made for singleplayer is usable on multiplayer without restrictions. What you get during multiplayer will be with you when you play singleplayer the next time. It comes with the own server creation tool for easy setup.

When we was kids who didn't wanted to be a pirate! Harr! Twisted

It isn't strategy, it is an action game. You control the ship with the keyboard at will. The ship mostly can fire only at the sides so the positioning is very important. The ship will fire automatically if anything is within the range of the cannons. This mean the ship can fire both sides at the same time.

However there is some possible strategy elements. You can hire ships to escort you. When there is more players it is even more important. For example one player will capture the town while the others keep the opponent out of way. Very Happy

I played on one of the servers. I had over 300 ping but there was not any lag. It should even work with us, the forum members. Smile

I never searched these kinds of games. Most of them are about clicking on the map to move your character, and an another click to attack till the monster die. I played on games like Diablo and Sacred but it just isn't fun for me to click on something and you will hit it for sure.

The Windward had a good idea with the fixed firing arc and keyboard control. Now you must positioning your ship right to be able to attack. Or you can use are of effect abilities that can be launched any direction. However you must place it because it not lock-on on the opponent.

And for those who want to try this little and fun game. It is about 75 Mb. This is the GOG.com version, which mean it will not ask for anything and let you play on any server (including Steam servers).

I like when you can do whatever you want. Sometimes I just want some relaxing trading between two destinations, but sometimes I want non-stop battle. The Windward is basically my equivalent of Skyrim.

Yes, freedom and option to play with friends. This is enough for me to enjoy the game.

But it isn't problem if the game has pirates in it. XD

I see. Then it is something like the Sacred 1-2. It was a long time when I played any singleplayer game just for myself. If I play alone I mostly play on nostalgic games.

For example now I want to record a complete playthrough of Ninja Ryukenden II. It is one of the legendary Nintendo (or Famicom) games.

The Way of The Samurai 4 is on GOG.com, you can buy it. Or you can maybe find a torrent. XD

I decided to buy a new ship with a total different style in Windward. Till now I used a very heavy capital ship, but this one is a faster one. Still a capital ship with high defense and offense, but at the cost of the absolute power it have some speed. I start to like better this ship. Very Happy

The Way of The Samurai 4 was released for PC:

GOG.com website

By the way, do you want to play on Windward online? As far as I seen I can play on the Canadian server without lag, and that is a huge distance. XD

And I really like the Windward. It is really epic when two large fleet battles each other. Especial fun when lords and commanders comes in play.
