The Stillness of the Wind, from solo developer Memory of God, is set for release February 7 for the Nintendo Switch, iOS, and PC by way of Steam and itch.io. A follow-up to 2017’s Where the Goats Are, The Stillness of the Wind looks like it will deliver a similarly meditative experience.
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, and 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, brought to you by solo indie developer Memory of God.
Memory of God (aka Coyan Cardenas) cites influences as diverse as Andrei Tarkovsky and Gabriel Garcia Marquez, as well as games like Kentucky Route Zero and Sword and Sworcery. If Where the Goats Are is any indication, The Stillness of the Wind should deliver sharp writing and an emotional punch to live up to those influences, even with simple gameplay. Where the Goats Are is currently available on itch.io, if you want to get an idea of what to expect.
