Windward – Sid Meiers Pirates & Diablo inspired sea war game

Windward is small sea-war indie game with very high playability and detail production with the sincerity. It was wholly (design/programming/UI) completed by a single person (Michael Lyashenko from Canada – well-known for developing the popular NGUI plugin for Unity game engine).

Overall, Windward is a blend of concepts in two representative games Sid Meier’s Pirates! and Diablo. In game, the character is a ship’s captain living in a randomly generated ship sailing world. You can explore the sea world according to your own hobby and judgment. For example, you can choose to deal with conflicts through diplomacy, and get continuous growth through trade and collection; Or, just take the simple but rough way instead, in that case, you will ultimately set foot on the notorious pirates journey.

// Key Features //

  • Large procedurally generated worlds for a unique experience every new campaign.
  • Play with your friends via full cross-platform multiplayer! Bring your ship into your friends’ worlds, or have them join yours.
  • Play as much or as little as you like. The game saves your progress on the spot — no need to save manually.
  • Play it how you want: relax and immerse yourself doing trading and questing, or venture forth into pirate-infested lands for some high-adrenaline naval combat.
  • Unlock new ships, find upgrades, recruit allies, fund new towns, build coastal defenses, even bribe pirates to join your cause!
  • Extensive talent tree with role-specific specializations.
  • Customize your ship to make it look how you want. Pink hull with black sails? Sure, why not!
  • Procedural itemization system where higher difficulty automatically means better rewards.
