We have good news! Wind and Water: Puzzle Battles for the Dreamcast was featured on gamesTM magazine, one of UK’s and Europe’s most renown magazines. Also, W&W has been restocked by Play Asia, more on this below.
gamesTM also reviewed the game, praising the fact that so much content “was only made by two people”:
“The first thing you’ll notice about W&W is that it has an impressive amount of content for a game that was made by just two people. The puzzle game itself can be played in story mode — a meaty adventure featuring multiple routes, RPG-like progression, animated cut-scenes, text dialogue, even mini-games. It’s basically everything you would expect from a pluzzler’s story mode and more. [...] There’s more here than you’ll find in any of the other genre realeses that appeared during Dreamcast’s lifetime and it’s all top quality too. You never get the feeling that Yuan Works rushed or cut corners throughout production. [...] The core element of Wind and Water is actually a very playable and original concept. [...] The core gameplay has just the right kind of addictive quality to keep you playing for hours [...] In short, if you’re still actively buying Dreamcast games and you’re looking for something different than the usual crop of shooters then this is essential“
Also, we have other good news: Wind and Water had been out of stock for months on Play Asia, but last week Play Asia restocked the game for those who were not able to purchase the game.
The magazine features a full interview regarding the development of Wind and Water, development from Dreamcast, and our view as Independent Game creators (special thanks to Kim Wild for the interview). Remember that supporting Independent Games helps us continue doing games for our favorite consoles which are not supported by manufacturers. Here’s the trailer of Wind and Water: Puzzle Battles in case you haven’t seen it:
