Windforge – CONTRA meets MINECRAFT – Releases On March 11th

Great news for all Contra and Minecraft fans as Snowed In Studios has revealed that Windforge will hit Steam on March 11th. Windforge is a 2D building block RPG that seamlessly combines gameplay like Contra with the freedom and building of Minecraft, in which players will be able to build airships and explore hostile skies in an ever changing Steampunk world.

As Snowed in Studios told us:

“We are excited to say that we will be launching WindForge on Steam March 11, as a follow up to running a successful Kickstarter this fall and having been greenlit by the Steam community last month.”

Jean-Sylvain Sormany, the president of Snowed in Studios, added:

“We had a difficult choice to make, to keep working on the game with the help of the WindForge community or to shorten production and launch the game in the fall. Running the campaign takes time and resources and we were not sure what was the right thing to do, given the statistics on how many Kickstarters fail,’ says . ‘We literally did not know if we made the right decision or not until the very last minute. We met our goal with only 62 seconds on the clock, so it was pretty tight!”

Here are the key features of Windforge:

  • Epic story line and quests that drive gameplay without constricting freedom
  • The first game to include minable sky whales, and meat blocks
  • Large completely destructible procedural world with multiple environment types
  • Contra-style action mixed with the creative fun of Terraria
  • Build and fly fully-functional airships
  • Over 1500 craftable items and counting
  • Easy-to-control, skill-based combat with 360-degree aiming

Enjoy!
