Reviews

“Taken altogether The Wind and the Wilting Blossom is an entertaining adventure that takes a fun, if apocalyptic, look at Heian-era Japan and wraps it in a good tactical experience...this game nails that ‘one more turn’ quality that many strategy games employ.”
Wargamer

“The designers made great choices in deciding what they should include and what they left off, and it just works in a way that a lot of other games do not.”
8.5/10 – Turn Based Lovers

“The Wind and Wilting Blossom is a fantastic Rogue-like strategy RPG that marries all of its systems superbly. It does clearly draw inspiration from FTL, but this is no bad thing; in fact, I’m delighted to have more of this emerging subgenre.”
4.5/5 – Indie Game Reviewer
