Dev Update and David at GDC!

Hey Riders!

Just a quick update to let everyone know how the Steam release has been going. Other than gathering enough cows for our next offering to the gods, we’ve also put all our warriors into progressing on the PC build. We’re happy to say it’s been chugging along nicely - the game content is on schedule, but there’s A LOT of interface to complete and polish.

Fingers crossed, we’re hoping to have Six Ages ready around the end of spring of this year!

David at GDC
Meanwhile, if anyone is going to be at GDC (Game Developers Conference) in mid-March, David Dunham himself will be giving a talk about the distinctive design elements of Six Ages!

An excerpt from the description: “He'll show how the pieces fit together to create a re-playable emergent narrative with an overall story arc, interesting and helpful advisors, and a strategic simulation of politics.”



Plus, he’ll touch on how a text-based game achieves immersion, and describe the tools that let him and his small team create a game with as much text as the first four Harry Potter novels. (Wow!) You can grab all the info here.

Meanwhile, feel free to chat with David on the Six Ages channel in the Kitfox Discord or on their Twitter!

Cheers,
Victoria and the Kitfox clan

Six Ages Steam Release Delayed

Greetings riders!

Six Ages is more than a myth or a legend -- it's going to be playable on Steam (hopefully)... but not as quickly as we'd initially planned.

Unfortunately, the original programmer we contracted in the summer didn't work out, and although he had to visit the emergency room a couple of times, he's thankfully recovering now. But we have had to re-start the porting process with a new porting partner.

We're happy to be working with Rusto Games, a small outfit in Finland (three cheers for Finland!) who are big fans of King of Dragon Pass and Six Ages, which makes us big fans of them in turn.

We aren't sure exactly what the new release date is, but we're hoping to hit desktops (PC and Mac) spring or summer 2019. You'll be the first to know when we have more details. In the meantime, David and the team has been making lots of bugfixes, so it will be the most polished release of the game it can be.

Thanks for your patience and support!

About This Game

Life between myths. Lead your clan into legend or obscurity. Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind is a storybook strategy game, immersing you in a land of old gods and magic.

Hundreds of small encounters build into an epic, multi-generational tale of survival and inter-clan alliances. Six Ages is the spiritual successor to acclaimed King of Dragon Pass, taking place thousands of years earlier in the same shared world of Glorantha. Part role-playing, part resource management, you'll always be making decisions with long-term consequences, for you and your clan.


  • Design your own clan, visit the gods, become respected, raid your neighbors' cows
  • Over 400 interactive story scenes, with deep simulation systems driving their appearance and outcomes
  • Multiple difficulty levels, and the option for Iron Willed players to limit reloading
  • Gorgeous hand-painted high-resolution illustrations
  • Same world as King of Dragon Pass, but a new clan: the Riders, with their own myths, and 4x more world to explore
  • Discover, appease, and make deals with spirits in your territory




Glorantha is a highly detailed Bronze Age world, similar in many ways to our own. But it exists in a magical universe where the laws of physics are subordinate to the whims of the gods and spirits. To understand Glorantha, leave our mundane world and enter the world of myth. The Sun is a living god, not a nearby star. Countless gods exist, some even more powerful than the Sun, and all have the power to directly affect humanity.

In Six Ages, you play specifically as a Riders clan, who revere various gods in their particular mythology, including Gamari the Horse Mother, and your culture hero, Hyalor... but you would be foolish to forget Raven the Trickster. He has not forgotten you.

Glorantha is also the setting of other rich narrative games/experiences, including King of Dragon Pass, HeroQuest, RuneQuest, God Wars, and others.
