About the Game

A modern take on the 16-bit era, A Valley Without Wind 2 blends a variety of mechanics across multiple genres, seamlessly bringing together the best qualities of old-school platform-shooters and turn-based strategy games. You choose how and where to explore via the world map, how to upgrade your character via mage classes, feats, and perks that you unlock, and how to battle the forces of evil every step of the way.

Your character is a mage who has infiltrated the inner circle of the evil Demonaica, and you now share the power of immortality that he uses to terrorize the land. Using this power against him, it's time to lead an uprising and ultimately bring him and his henchmen back to mortality so that they can be dispatched.

Gameplay alternates between two modes that complement each other: brief, tightly-designed platforming segments where your character customization and equipment can be tuned to meet the tactical needs of the current stage; and quick strategic turns on the world map where you order your troops to fight, scavenge, build, recruit, farm, and use special powers. Demonaica and his armies pursue your forces directly on the world map, while his five henchmen have been sent to recapture you in the platforming segments.

Your immortality came at great personal cost, but it makes you the one last hope of saving the world from darkness.

Key Features:

  • Platforming and Turn-Based Strategy Coupled Together:
    Flip back and forth between your own adventure, and the progress of the resistance you're in charge of. Freely adjust difficulty levels for both to tailor the experience to your own personal playstyle. Both sides of the game can be quite easy or incredibly hard.
  • More Tactile Combat:
    The physics of movement and attacks have been completely redone from the first title, with more traditional gamepad and keyboard support. Spells have mass and can block each other, leading to many interesting tactical situations in the platforming segments.
  • Vastly Improved Visuals:
    Fully redone artwork by Heavy Cat Studios, including 125 all-new monsters, 200 spells, and lots more.
  • Focused Gameplay Arc:
    Unlike the endless sandbox-style first game, this complete re-imagining has a distinct beginning, middle, and end.
  • Procedurally Generated Worlds:
    Each world is a unique challenge, leading to excellent replay value once you do beat the game!
  • Co-Op Multiplayer:
    Bring along as many friends as you like on your journey, depending on your connection speed. 2-8 players recommended on most Internet connections; many more on LAN.
  • See Just How Deep An Arcen-style Rabbit-Hole Goes:
    After dozens of hours you still haven't seen it all: 50 mage classes in 5 tiers, 200 spells, 125 enemies, 14 biomes, 100+ types of world map tiles, 64 character customization perks, 100ks of procedural equipment possibilities.
  • Extra Challenges For Expert Players:
    String together flawless kills to earn "concentration" and become even stronger. Beat the game on harder difficulties to earn rare achievements.
  • Get The Original Game For Free!
    The original game was unique and experimental, and it comes included absolutely free when you buy the sequel.

Fabulously bizarre and fantastically original game. It's not that the individual elements have never been used before, it's that they've never been combined in quite this way. This game makes no attempt at anything vaguely resembling physics, so if you're a stickler for that stuff skip this game. But the gameplay is challenging and absolutely consistent, and the dream-like demon-apocalypse setting combined with the odd but memorable soundtrack, makes for a lot of fun for people looking for something different.

Backlog Clearing #4

Had good expectations of A Valley Without Wind 2 considering how #1 went. However it has became annoying to play the sequel. Developers tried to implement some strategy towards the game and also change how the movement / spell system works.

Could'nt bear playing it for long, I would suggest anyone trying to play A Valley Without Wind 1 instead.

While way more of a "game" than the last one, I really didn't like the emphasized "keyboard" control scheme. Making your game difficult by making it difficult to control doesn't make it fun. The SRPG-lite overworld mechanics were surprisingly solid, and help to drive you to finish the game as fast as possible.

-Funny little game, something different for a change-

Like AVWW1 people either like this one or hate it. Unlike the first part this game is more focused and a match plays faster. You don't have to delve in randomized dungeons for hours to get achievements or unlockables although there might be persons who did just that. Also the graphical style is similar but not that awful, improved you might say. I was worried reading about the setting and how that might translate into gameplay but it's working nicely. You play on a strategic board against an immortal enemy and his minions. Your units run around turnbased and grab ressources or build tile improvements while the enemy hunts them down. Parallely you dispatch your PC into worthwhile areas to play jump and shoot.
If you liked AVWW1 or enjoy jump'n'shoots along with light strategy give this game a try - if you hated AVWW1 then you don't like this one either I guess.

A great little game for those of us who have played everything. Exploring the map, building to get the resources you need, beautiful graphics and one of the best soundtracks ever. I really recomend playing with a gamepad tho. Its really designed around a gamepad.
