Talewind Interview with Philip Machado of WindLimit Studios

The Story

You live in a small village at the bottom of a mountain. This mountain is not like the others though. Surrounding it, strong winds never cease to blow. To this village the wind is a blessing, a never ending source of energy essential to everyday life. But one day, the wind gets weaker and starts to fade. You set off on a journey to climb the mountain and find out what is happening.

What is Talewind?

Talewind is a platformer that draws inspiration for its gameplay from old school platformers such as Super Mario, Sonic, Megaman, and Rayman. It mashes up old school elements with a refreshing hand-painted art style inspired by the works of Ghibli.

You play as a adventurous young boy that lives in a small village at the bottom of a mountain. This mountain is not like the others though. Surrounding it, strong winds never cease to blow. To this village the wind is a blessing, a never ending source of energy essential to everyday life. But one day, the wind gets weaker and starts to fade.

You will climb the mountain in search for answers, but the mountain holds many secrets and dangerous creatures, with the help of your magic wind cape you will have to make use of all the different types of wind to reach the end of your journey.

With many worlds to explore and many bosses holding the doors to the next step, you are sure to be engrossed by the beautiful world that is "TALEWIND".

    Tauronos promises an intriguing story, but since running out of lives forces you to start your journey again from the beginning, few players will have the patience to persevere and experience more than a fraction of it.

  • BLACK DAY Early Access Review

    Black Day is an “Early Access” third person shooter with FPS elements.  Rather than focusing on a set story and setting, Black Day is a military sandbox where players change the parameters of their missions.  Featuring an experience-based progression system, Black Day rewards players for handicapping themselves via difficult obstacles with new equipment and maps.  Helios Productions self proclaims this title as “very ambitious,” promising that they only want to provide an excellent final product.  The promise of so many features, paired with the beauty of the Unreal Engine, begs the question; is it able to deliver on its ambition?

    Inmates grabs you right off the bat and starts yelling in your face: you are screaming and afraid, but at the end of it all, you’ll probably tell your friends that they need to come over and get yelled at, too.
