Soar the Heavens in Windhaven: Spirit of Flight

Windhaven is the first game of it’s kind on the Xbox Indies Marketplace, marking a monumental shift in XNA gaming. This upcoming title allows gamers to be a winged avian warrior that soars through the clouds, satisfying one of man’s most wondrous fantasies: to fly in the heavens.

While there are a plethora of zombie shooters, gimmicky Avatar games, and “apps” on the marketplace, this title is the prime example of a flying sim…yet most gamers wouldn’t expect to fly without the aid of a man-made craft. Windhaven focuses on the natural grace of our feathered friends as they swoop and glide in impressive 3-D environments, giving players the sense of really experiencing the majestic wonder of soaring high above the world.

The story mode follows a team of four brave bird-shifters called upon to defend their home against an extradimensional horde. Use varied magical attacks and the island’s defense network to hold back the tide.

Challenge mode tests your aerial skills with racing, soaring and target shooting events. A fully voiced tutorial gets you off to a flying start, while free flight mode lets you brush up your skills and take in the scenery. Finally versus and co-op multiplayer, online and split-screen, will ensure the skies never seem lonely.

Many gamers out there have always wanted a game like this for their library, and there have been attempts in tackling this kind of experience, however Windhaven is the very first (and possibly only) Xbox Indie Game that brings the one-of-a-kind experience to your Xbox 360 console.

Windhaven: Spirit of Flight is coming soon to the Xbox Live Indie Games Marketplace for 400 MSP ($5) and is also planned to be available on PC, yet no release date has been announced for either platform.
