The Stillness of the Wind – an Emotional Take on Farming Games


The Stillness of the Wind is a beautiful and unique take on the traditional and very popular farming game genre. The game focuses on Talma, an elderly woman who is spending her late days on her farmstead growing food, making cheese and tending to animals. The Stillness of the Wind packs everything you come to except from amazing farming games, such as Stardew Valley, Harvest Moon and Story of Seasons to name a few

However The Stillness of the Wind comes with a twist, the game is less about doing chores, but more about feelings. It takes the player on a journey through an emotional narrative about life and loss, the ups and downs that can hit us when we least expect it. At the place where life turns for the better or worse, and when things we cherish come to an end, this is where The Stillness of The Wind is doing a stunning job of capturing those emotions and turning it into a heartfelt story for players to enjoy. 

In the game players will meet a traveling merchant who will occasionally drop by and deliver mail from friends and family. Loved fans are sending these letters from a far away city, that not only feels very distant, but also threatens to change Talmas world in meaningful ways.

Beside the deeply emotional narrative, the game also features traditional gameplay elements found in most farming games. Players will be able to grow and harvest crops and turn these into produce to sell. There are also adorable animals such as goats that you can take milk from and turn it into cheese, mhmmmmm. 

The Stillness of the Wind is now available for $12.99 on both Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam here
