I recently had the opportunity to interview SrBilyon Harris, from Wind Chill, in regards to his upcoming title ‘Breeze in the Clouds‘, a game currently seeking funding via Kickstarter.
First of all, for those unfamiliar with the title ‘Breeze in the Clouds’, could you please explain what the game is about?
No problem! So, Breeze in the Clouds is a project I started last year in an attempt to create a game that would invoke nostalgia. I miss the days where I could buy any $20 game and it would be an adventure. Games were suitable for almost any age and there weren’t really “target audiences.” Every game was good back then, no matter the graphics style, music, character design, etc. Everything was just good. I want to bring that “feel” back with this game.
This game is about a corgi named Breeze and his adventure to return to his owner, while trying to save the sky world after a spree of weird storms and weather patterns. In order to stop the storms and return home, Breeze, accompanied by a cloud sprite as his guide, must venture around the world’s skies, help other cloud sprites, and find The Cloud King, the only one who can defeat The Storm King.
The player will play as Breeze and the game will play like a traditional 3D platformer with a combination of action-based combat. It is intended for all ages. The game will feature very stylized graphics, memorable music and hopefully, a memorable tale.
What was your inspiration for ‘Breeze in the Clouds’?[This Content is Exclusive for Insider]
Breeze in the Clouds will be released when it is done. However those who make a $10 minimum backing on Kickstarter will receive access to builds of the game that require testing.
