Overview of the updates to come!

Hello everyone! Just wanted to let you know that the next release of Winds Of Trade is going to include a new "Jumbo" map size. Many of you have been asking for bigger maps, with more cities, more countries and more business possibilities... So we're going to deliver just that!

It's still being tested and not ready to be released yet, but we're confident we can fix the remaining issues (mainly performance ones) and ship this exciting feature in the next update!

To know more about the features that will be added to the game soon, please visit our Dev Blog here: http://devblog.windsoftrade.net/2017/05/exciting-news-about-map-sizes.html

WoT updated to version 1.2!

Hello everyone! We're happy to announce that the new 1.2 update has been released! Here are the changes this update brings:

  • New advanced tutorial that gives you an overview on buying ships, smuggling, accepting contracts and more.
  • Four new resources to trade: Gold Ore, Gold, Ivory and Jewelry.
  • Captains now acquire experience when sailing and when attacking enemy ships, so their skills will increase as time passes, but their salary remains the same! :)
  • Captains now have a small chance of dying in battle.
  • New design for the loading screen.
  • Clicking on the active contracts tooltip now opens the contracts window.
  • Fixed bug that sometimes caused the city details tooltip to be in the wrong position.
  • Small improvements to some texts to make them easier to understand.

Now starts the road towards v1.2.2, which will include some minor fixes and improvements and then towards v1.3, an exciting update that will add several new features!

About This Game

Winds Of Trade is a strategy game about running an ocean trading company in the 18th and 19th centuries. Building your trading empire will not be your only goal! Ruthless pirates, shady smugglers, wartime and fierce competitors will make the way to the top a long and hard road for you!

Main Features


  • Procedurally generated worlds: You will face different challenges and you will have to learn how the cities’ production chains interact every time you start a new game.
  • Realistic economic simulation: All prices respond to the basic laws of supply and demand. Every raw material comes from somewhere and every final product goes somewhere to be bought. No arbitrary game rules set, just the will of the free market.
  • Smuggling: Some goods that can be freely bought in one city may be illegal someplace else... Are you willing to take risks for some extra profit?
  • Smart Artificial Intelligence opponents that will make your way to the top even more challenging!
  • Dynamic world economy: Events such as forest fires, bad harvests or war alter the supply, demand and prices of the different commodities.
  • Contracts system: You can accept contracts from governments, private companies and even shady smugglers in order to make some extra money transporting goods. But don't forget, failing comes with a price.
  • Turn based battle system: Pirates may attack you if your cargo is valuable enough... Do you have what it takes to defend yourself? Also, be very careful during wartime, especially if you are transporting weaponry or troops.
  • Your very own colonies: Once you are powerful enough you can found your own colonies in order to exploit natural resources and play with the rules of the market.
  • Own warehouses to accumulate goods and manipulate the market.
  • 11 different ship types from the Age of Sailing, including brigs, galleons, fluyts, frigates and schooners.
  • Automatic Trade Routes: Once your fleet is big enough you can make scripts for your ships to follow and they will trade according to your rules automatically.
  • Improve your ships' stats by hiring experienced captains or purchasing upgrades.
  • Stock market: Invest in companies, help them sell their goods worldwide and collect the profits.
  • Corruption simulation system: Obtain an advantage over your opponents by bribing corrupt governments.
  • Dynamic weather simulation.
  • A rich and immersive soundtrack.
