Freedom & Creativity!
Windforge focuses on empowering the player with freedom and creativity. Story-driven and environmental based challenges in the world provide goals for players to harness that creativity. In the world of Cordeus there are no artificial barriers. The game is designed without barriers such fake doors, invisible walls, and unbreakable obstacles.
Explore, build and destroy anything!
All of the towns and ships in Windforge are constructed using the same tools and items players acquire throughout the duration of the game. There are over 500 items to craft in the game. A significant portion of these items can be used to build structures and airships.
A Dynamic Procedural World
The world will be constantly changing as the result of building, mining, and the damage caused by combat. Throughout the course of the game, players will be faced with choices that can cause widespread changes to the entire world. The world of Cordeus is dynamic and completely destructible, combining many interacting objects and systems. This provides situations that are unique, and can even surpass players’ expectations.
Traveling through the vast skies of Windforge is facilitated by the use of buildable airships. Windforge features a ship building system that is deep enough to provide interesting choices, yet simple enough to avoid tedious micromanagement. All of the major ship components on ships serve functional purposes. As parts break, ships can become disabled. This adds a whole new level of strategy to combat and ship design, and promotes improvisation and adaptation during play.
When beginning a new campaign, players will be prompted with a few basic choices: Name, Gender & Hair Colour.
Exclusive to Windforge is the last choice when customizing a character: Hometown. This choice will determine the initial stats of your character, along with their starting outfit. This will affect the way your character looks and feels at the beginning of your campaign.
As you progress, you’ll be able to customize your character as you see fit. Every piece of equipment you choose to adorn your avatar with will be reflected in-game!
The modern way of life on Cordeus is reliant on refined Sky Whale oil. Everything from the machines used daily, to the food that is eaten, is ultimately dependent on the oil. The citizens of Cordeus are so hungry for oil, that the once abundant population of Sky Whales is dwindling. At current rate, the noble species will face certain extinction in a few short years.
To avoid falling back into the dark ages, civilization must find a new source of energy. It is said that an ancient people named the Aetherkin had exotic sources of energy. Energy more powerful than anything any human has ever seen. Unfortunately, research related to the Aetherkin is strictly forbidden by law.
In an attempt to save humanity’s way of life, YOU have been secretly hired to uncover this ancient energy source.
