OverviewOverview

Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind is a storybook strategy game, set in the same world as King of Dragon Pass. Similar to games like HeroQuest, RuneQuest or God Wars but unusual because you make decisions at your leisure then see them play out through static hand drawn images and storytelling.

The appeal is that unlike linear adventures, here you can have hundreds of small encounters that build into an epic, multi-generational tale of survival and inter-clan alliances. Six Ages takes place thousands of years earlier than King of Dragon Pass, but continues both the play style and petty political posturing. You play as a Riders clan, who revere various gods in their particular mythology, including Gamari the Horse Mother, and your culture hero, Hyalor.

It's a combination of role-playing, resource management and branching narrative. You make decisions with long-term consequences, for both you and your clan. As you do this you can design your own clan, visit the gods, raid your neighbours' cows.
