Yarr, me hearties! New indie game on the starboard bow! Or was it port? I can never remember which. Either way, Windward is a rather fancy-looking multiplayer-centric nautical action game running on the Unity engine, and being developed by Tasharen Entertainment. It’s still early days on the project, although players can jump in and try it out in the form of a public alpha build. It even handily runs in a browser window.
They say a picture speaks a thousand words, so 15 minutes at 30 frames a second must be a grand epic, right? Here’s IGM contributor Tanoy Sinha with his video hands-on with the current version of the game:
Looking interesting. Kinda like a blend of Sid Meier’s Pirates! naval combat and DOTA-style team warfare. We – and hopefully Tanoy – will be keeping an eye on this one as it develops further.
