Windscape | LogoInspired by titles like The Legend of Zelda, Secret of Mana, and Golden Axe Warrior, German developer Dennis Witte hopes to combine the best elements of each in his upcoming game Windscape. Releasing on March 27, 2019 for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC, Windscape is described by publisher Headup Games as a “first person exploration adventure with elements of modern crafting and sandbox games”. Players will have the opportunity to fight monsters, solve quests and puzzles, interact with NPCs, and explore the world.  Here are some key features provided in the press release:

  • A handcrafted universe
  • A beautiful world to explore and discover
  • An immersive yet classical story around a young girl
  • A profound yet simple to use crafting system
  • Murky dungeons and challenging boss fights
