Windforge is a building block game from Canadian indie developer Snowed In Studios that I told you about way back at the end of July. It’s a unique looking game with combat that appears to at be partially inspired by Contra (with the running and adjusting your gun angle thing), but also has some other really interesting aspects, like the ability to build airships (the second most fascinating part of Windforge) as well as giant air whales that are also made of building blocks (this is the most fascinating part of Windforge, I just don’t know why more games don’t feature flying whales). In any case, the folks at Snowed In Studios have released a bunch of new footage of Windforge in honor of its launch on Steam Greenlight (which seems have garnered some … moderate interest … around the indie dev community and some interest in the gamer community, too, since you don’t actually have to pay anything, as opposed to Kickstarter). We see more than a fair amount of running and gunning in this video, as well as some slightly more epic airships than I have seen in some of the previous Windforge footage, as well as some ship-to-ship combat. If you’d be interested in seeing Windforge from Snowed In Studios on Steam, you can go vote for it on Greenlight. If you’d like more information about Windforge generally, you can also check out the official dev blog.
