About

One by one, everyone left the once bustling village for the city. Everyone, except Talma. Now approaching the end of her days, she maintains a simple, solitary way of life, surviving, subsisting, tending to her homestead and her goats. Develop your own personal routine as you care for your farm and your animals. Tend to your goats, make cheese with their milk, collect eggs and cook meals, grow vegetables and barter with the travelling merchant who brings increasingly disturbing letters from your family in the city. A follow up to the critically acclaimed Where the Goats Are, The Stillness of the Wind is a quiet rumination on life and loss. Breed and look after your goats, make cheese from their milk, grow vegetables, water your plants, collect eggs, scare off the birds. It’s a hard but simple life of peaceful subsistence. The travelling merchant brings letters from your family and friends and with them a view into a city that feels both very far away and as if it threatens to wash away the world you know. It's up to you how you spend Talma’s time each day and what your routine will be. Focus on your chores, wander in the desert, reminisce about the past or draw patterns in the dirt. Trade cheese and other items in return for hay for your goats, seeds to plant, fables, exotic items and shotgun shells, whilst exchanging conversation with the travelling merchant, your only human interaction. Where the Goats Are was Memory of God's first game. The Stillness of the Wind will be a follow up, expanding on the original concept. "While Tikvah and her goats might meet an ultimately tragic end, the fleeting, quiet moments before this asked me to appreciate the small things while I could. " Lewis Gordon, Waypoint "Where the Goats Are seems to unfold like a tableau." Stephanie Chan, GamesBeat "I like its simplicity, and the solace that comes from designing your own daily routine." Samuel Horti, Rock Paper Shotgun

A very beautiful Game, funny and sad at the same time.

Like the little Predecessor, really nice to play. Extremely relaxing Gameplay.

So I haven't played long yet, but I already find the Game recommended for Players who like slow and relaxing games. It's the perfect Game if you can't sleep at Night (not meant sarcastically). The Music and the Figure you control are just relaxing for me. I had to make out now just because my Eyes were falling. The Character moves quite slowly ... Just like me just ... Our Lady has to eat and do different Tasks. The Tasks are done at your own discretion. Get up in the morning, milk Goats, create Or water fields, collect chicken Eggs lunch, etc. All slow and tense. The Story seems quite sweet. So so far especially for stressed Managers thumbs up.

The Stillness of the Wind is a Game where a false Expectation makes the Game seem almost devoid of content. The Graphic Style is great, the Game looks great and the Story is told quite well. However, except for the Graphics and the Faces, there is nothing else to name. The Farm serves as a Means to An end and has no playful or special Depth of content. The Environment is rough, boring and serves no Purpose. Except for the little Stories, the Narrative and the Style, the Game offers too little Content. Someone who wants to switch off completely for 1-2 Hours, I would recommend the Game. Anyone expecting a Game and I have, I would advise against Buying it. There are too many Games on the Market In the same Price category that provide me with more in terms of content. It is only by Reading Texts that I will not be able to convince. These little Mechanics could have been omitted and nothing about the Game would change. I have the Feeling that Growing or, for example, producing cheese is absolutely pointless. For me, the Gameplay has no Purpose and you could have read the Story in Text Form with sad Music. Unfortunately For me, therefore, no Purchase Recommendation. If you are into something like that, you should buy the Game. Anyone expecting a Game will leave their Fingers off it.
