Hidden Path's Windborne Looks Lovely


You will probably be most familiar with Hidden Path via Defense Grid or Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which are games quite unlike what they are working on now, which is Windborne. This is a game where the players have floating islands full of weird fluffy creatures and perhaps dragons. It's a game of exploration, puzzle solving, crafting, questing, doing things with dragons, and construction. It also mingles single-player and multiplayer worlds to tantalising effect. Speaking with Destructoid, Hidden Path's Michael Austin explained that there is "an evolving single-player mystery that players can choose to investigate at their own pace, and you can continue to invest time in your island or guide it towards a self-sustaining state in order to focus more on exploration, interaction, and collaboration with other players... just completely ignore the quest lines and just build, and at any point you can take your single-player world online."

There's going to be a big dragon breeding and hatching theme in there, but apparently one dragon will be special for you, and you will have a closer relationship with it. Aw!
