OverviewOverview

In The Stillness of the Wind you are an old woman who looks after a dilapidated farm. Over the course of a few hours, no matter what your efforts, the farm falls apart as you learn about the woman’s family and have the chance to ruminate on her loneliness and happy memories.

It's a slow game that goes at its own pace. As you work through each day you have to give in to the languid countryside and have time to reflect on the old woman's life, family and future. Themes of age, loss and the grief of the world moving on are woven through the story.
