Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind Review
Posted: 6 months ago, last updated 3 days ago.
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.
