Geliştirici ürün hakkında ne diyor:

“I don't think I've ever been so giddy working on a project. I find myself just grinning at the screen instead of actually working on the game, wandering around the world watching our creatures or exploring the cool things that the procedural system made. Our vision with Windborne is both simple and enormously complex at the same time. We want to make a Miyazaki-style Disneyland of creative sandbox worlds- an infinite number of dense, exciting islands to explore with your friends, full of high adventure, where it's up to you to decide what to do. Inspired by games such as Animal Crossing, Minecraft, Dwarf Fortress, and the early Zeldas, expect more features to be added and finessed as we move closer to launch.”

Hobbes : "First question concerning Project Windborne, please provide an overview as to it's current status and it's overall progress as regards development? Is it still under active development, is it on the backburner, are there issues that are preventing new builds being pushed out to steam, etc.

Jeff Pobst, CEO HPE: "Windborne is a game we love so very much here at HPE and has been fully funded internally at the studio without partners. That means that as we make money doing projects for other companies or make money selling games that we have made on our own before (Defense Grid as an example) we then reinvest that into the development of other original titles such as Windborne.

With the advent of Early Access we decided to share the early development of the game with people and see if folks would be interested enough to buy it so that it would fund the team each month from the sales.

While we have found a great audience and a lot of people who love Windborne even in its early state, we didn't raise enough sales to continually fund the team at the size it was. After going for over a year with the large team, we couldn't afford to keep that up on our own and so we shrunk the team down to levels we could afford.

So, development is ongoing, its just happening with a much smaller team than it had before and development is progressing slower than before. We know this is frustrating to the existing players who eagerly await completion and its frustrating to us as well.

We here at HPE love the game, and know that the people who have purchased it love it too, and we simply ask for their patience as we all agree that it isn't done, and the only frustration that we all share right now is that HPE doesn't have enough cash to invest right now in order for us to develop as quickly on the game as we were initially doing

With the team a fraction of the size that it was before, it may be up to 12 months or more between updates rather than the every 3 months it was before - that said, we're constantly exploring options here in order to get the updates coming faster if possible - we love this game and we want to make progress on it for you and for us, we believe that it can have greater sales when more pieces of it are complete and when it gets much farther along in its development."

So where does that leave Windborne? Effectively in development hell. The same place that projects like Duke Nukem forever and Aliens Colonial Marines occupied. Updates around once per year mean the project is all but stalled in name, that's probably just enough to keep Valve from delisting the game from the store, but nowhere near enough to keep the game active enough to actually make it worth persuing.

The answer is very fluffy, and very full of soft words like "love" and "want" and "possible" but very light on actual hard information. The outcome is a very similar result to what happened to SpaceBase DF-9, and that project Tanked in a very similar manner. The long and the short, I fear this one short of a major dev drive is done. Not because of developer desire, the post makes it abundantly clear there's a lot of that, but because there's simply not going to be the resources to make it happen.

If wishes could make games live, this one would. But this is reality. This game is dead. It's going to stay dead, and nobody should consider going near it now, or in the future. Steam should delist it, and Hidden Path should be ashamed of themselves for continuing to promote, and sell this game at full price. It is almost, almost an act of fraud, to sell a product that's clearly not going to be finished, that is never going to be finished, and to sell it at such a price point? I imagine some of the people at Hidden Path must feel pretty terrible when they see the Windborne steam page, I know I would.

Bought it. Played it for awhile. Then waited for the final product. Still waiting. And recently, I've found out that the game is pretty much abandoned due to 'lack of funding' after gobbling up early access money.

Don't bother with this game. There are plenty of other great building games out there. And Steam really needs to stop promoting this dud so others don't fall into the same trap of purchasing an unfinished (and so-so) game which is not likely to ever be completed.

I was originally brought here via RoosterTeeth with the promise of a decent game. I was so excited to explore and see what all this game had to offer. I found nothing. Updates, where? Content, where? Where are the devs? This saddens me because the game had so much potential! :c

Here is a link to the CEO's AMA he did on 1/9/2015. He basically admits that they used early access to gauge peoples interest in the game and have since cut back the team to an unknown number. Doesn't sound good. Wish I knew my money wasn't being taken seriously before I gave it to them.

Stay away!

The game "looks" cool, the concept is's just abandoned is all.

The last update was on 7/22/14...over 5 months ago. The developers are nearly silent in the forum.

These are the same guys who created Defense Grid 2, and it looks like they are now spending their time and energy there instead of this concept.

The game is indeed fun for a few hours, but there's little to do in this unfinished, alpha game. It definitely is not worth the $30 price tag.

Wait until the game sees some movement from the devs or perhaps pick it up when it drops to a more reasonable price for what there is to do in the game ($10 or so).

Well I was super excited for this game. It had a nice rpg and magic twist to it. Felt nice, was nice, kept me busy a while and I loved having objects in the game. I also loved the fact that objects could auto connect and it's placement. I loved that you didn't need to be infront of a wiki for it because it taught you how to play through an extensive tutorial and what you could and couldn't craft. I loved the concept and the idea. It's look was amazing and fresh. It felt fun playing it. These guys truly have a unique and stylish way to make their games. Their work shows. They could of at least come out and offer some closure or some sort of status update on this project. I am certainly a fan of their art work and style regardless of their current progress.

However I have to change my review because its been nearly 7 months and nothing has really been done. It feels as if the devs are too busy working on other games they currently own. I will keep tabs on it because I really did enjoy it for awhile. Defense Grid 2 is eating up all of their time. Obviously they will work on what is more profitable for them. Both of these games are by "hidden path entertainment".

Probably because they have more help and money with it as it is not just like this game where they are putting it out themselves. Looks like "505 games" published their defense grid 2 game. On their other game, it looks like financially they are better since they have more help. However it is a shame because this game could of been something different to sandbox games and it had far less limitations for those creative people out there.

I do NOT feel cheated for what I paid for it because I felt the game was really fairly priced for their idea and their work they had put into it when this came to early access. Not ruling out "hidden path entertainment" as of yet even though I will not be buying their defense grid 2 because I am NOT into those types of games. Still hoping for a come back on this game. It was truly unique. They are not a fraud or lazy. Their passion and work shows on their projects. I was also looking forward to their island defense system which never came either.

I suggest just keeping tabs on it if you are interested but it looks and feels as if it might end up being a dead end project so don't purchase it just yet. :)

EDIT & UPDATE: 01-16-15, Friday.
So here is the latest from the steam community. The CEO of windborne came out and said on reddit what was going on and finally provided an excuse as to what is going on with thier early access game of windborne.

The fans read it and quickly alerted the steam users who bought the game through steam since they were not willing to update steam as per their sales first. The reddit post can be read here:

Updates will be done to the game yearly. As I predicted, it lacks investors and their defense grid 2 game has them. They will be doing what is profitable to them which is understandable. While others consider this game done, I have hope they will revive it if maybe they had financial backing. This made some steam users upset and others who wanted to buy the game, quickly changed their mind. This is just adding on to early access frustration of gamers that are being even more cautious now about when to spend their money for early access steam games.

Captain Kaboom who we saw show-casing the game recently on twitch along with their defense grid 2 game, has stated that today is her last day at HiddenPath Entertainment. That can be read here: Captain Kaboom will be missed.

Seems like there is some in house drama going on that is leading to more of their skeleton crew crisis for their products / projects. The issue now is the advertisement and what they said they will include in the game such as their pvp defense island verses island feature and several other features that may actually never even make it. The CEO was sure to state his background history with employment but it was a bit irrelevant to the current matter as no updates were given within 7 to 8 months. They will certaining need to revise their promises or what is offered for that game so that it markets properly due to their current financial state with the game.

In addition, I wish game devs realized that they should have some responsiblity with a game they claim to be working on when they quickly take the consumers funds and then back out of their deal. The other thing they need to realize is that if you don't do what you say you were going to do, your reputation will follow you & your fans will remember you. Last but not least, it is hurting early access devs with their products when you run into so many games that never get seen to completition. Early access is a BUYER'S BEWARE MARKET. Remember to gamble at your own risk.

With that being said, the game devs should also not take their fans for granted. Word of mouth is a scary thing that can backfire. Devs needs to know that they should be careful and a bit more considerate of their market. After all no one has forced them to make a game & market it to gamers who would of never even missed a game they didn't try or like, if they didn't know existed to begin with. No one is making them at gun point, sit for countless hours and make a game. They offer it all on their own. Many of these game devs are saying there is no money to keep funding the game, but they knew what they were getting into when they picked how to market their game and who to offer it too. I am certainly not upset about it because is always to be expected with these early access games. For this reason I do not recommend any game that feels semi-abandoned as a product and project to anyone. If anything don't be mad at the game devs that can take potentially take off with your money. Instead wonder or question steam's policies in these matters.

When I purchased this game I knew it wasn't going to be complete, and I must admit it looks fantastic and runs smoothly. Yet 9 months later and it seems to be in basically the same place except there is dlc for sale. You want me to spend more money? Maybe you should finish the incomplete game game I purchased at $30 first. I've lost confidence, patience, and interest in this company and it's game. Maybe one day this game will be amazing but at this point I'm so disenchanted that I couldn't care less if it did.

About 6 month since the last update. Let's be honest... for the price they are asking, they should work way more on it than that. Barely nothing new since i bought it. Don't waste your money and wait for a complet product.

Feeling a little burned by this company and the company which participated in your promotional campaign. It was obvious after a few days that they didn't actually like this game and were just making a buck from you. Then you guys went dark and I felt like you were just making a buck from me...needless to say I'm not pleased with either of your companies and you guys are definitely not out of the dark yet.

I'm hoping to see this little gem get the treatment it deserves. But the damage is done and I'm certainly not buying anything else from you guys until some of this shady business is cleared up. A post about how you are most definitely working is great and all but...prove it.

Game is charming but novelty bonus only holds up so long. This is not Minecraft with better graphics because the minecraft devs deliver time and again.
Usually someone says: you underestimate time spans in game developement. Nonsense you can tell by the increments if something is in the making. There is a large team here, there is a huge pot of money when asking 28€ for the game and 14€ more for a useless DLC so there is more to be expected than some new objects to craft every month like all the missing gameplay elements which read "coming soon" for example.
Consider Terraria, content and asking price, you'll understand. Consider Minecraft.

A shame since the world was so rich and promising but like Peter Molyneux the team isn't up to deliver it.

Look. I had some fun with this. It has nice music. The terrain shaping tools are better than most of these games. The ability to select alternate forms of items like furniture is a good feature.

You can run around for a couple of hundred hours gathering and building stuff. It is pretty.

But, it's a toy. The game portion never materialized. There is no interaction with the Jin. You cannot "help build a new civilization." The optional combat never materalized.

The multiplayer is crippled. If one other player joins your island, you lag severely. If two join, you probably crash.

The devs disappear for months and then drop a post into the forums with essentially no content. HPE says that they have scaled back the team, however, considering the illusive nature of the communication that has existed over the past eight months or so, I would not be surprised if it has been scaled back to zero.

They say that there was a lack of sales.

They had no sales. Their game is not finished. They had preorders with alpha access.

Early Access is not Kickstarter.

Pay close attention to the disclaimer about early access games. Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development.

The last update to the game was July 2014. I think the "may not change further" part of the disclaimer is pretty likely at this point.

I was hesitant to pay full price for a game so early in its development, and honestly I wish I'd saved my money.

The atmosphere and music are both relaxing. The characters are adorable. The crafting system is massive. You can build with much more than just blocks. Multiplayer lets you visit friends and build together. There's an in-game system which allows you to vote on what features the devs should concentrate on next.

The devs put this game in the back of their minds to develop Defense Grid 2, so there were almost no noteworthy updates last year. Many significant features (story, character progression, combat) still aren't in the game. There hasn't been any word at all from the devs in 7 months, and I don't expect there to be anytime soon. I suspect Windborne will permanently stay in an alpha stage. Very unfortunate, since this game takes place in such a wonderful universe and has so much potential.

If you want to spend time exploring a cute world and playing with blocks, there are worse ways to spend your money. Since this game isn't a priority for the developers, I cannot recommend buying it at this time. Hopefully someday the devs will put more effort into finishing Windborne, and at that point I will be more than happy to write a "Recommended" review.

I absolutely loved this game when I purchased it. It was on its way to being something wonderful. Looks like its been abandoned, they claim its "self-funded", but I spent $40 on it? Immensly disappointed at the apparent lack of focus by the developers.

I would wait until this gets some more updates under its belt before you purchase it.

Still on store page: "Windborne is set to release in late 2014."

I don't know about you devs, but it is 2015.

Development for this game is dead, don't let the developers fool you into purchasing this.

Steam is also is part of them problem, as they don't have the right measures in place to keep developers from screwing over customers. They will not refund this game or any early access game even if it never is completed, so that is the risk you take whenever you buy an early access game. I would suggest staying away from Early Access as you never know which game will actually be released or if it will even have the features they advertised.

This game always looked great, lots of potential. However be careful before buying this

They dont update the game since July/2014. I recommend you dont buy it, they arent working on this game anymore, looks like it will not be finished.

Once they finish this, i will change my review
