A downloadable game for Windows

OVERVIEW

Wind Digger is set in a post-apocalyptic parallel world, where advanced civilizations thrived and flourished before their destruction by the Allstorm, over 150 years ago.

Raised in a distant city-state where the military has been in power for more than a century, the main character fled in a military truck and spent a year roaming the toxic wastes of the south. He befriended the local tribes, customized his truck and discovered an unconventional AI living in the vehicle’s mainframe. 

Now newly recruited in a loose union of mercenary explorers - the Wind Diggers - our hero is a loner among this group of loners, speaking very rarely and almost only to his loyal but uncaring AI companion. 

Recently hired for an unusual contract, he just arrived at the target location: an abandoned Windrose outpost built on the edge of an ancient pre-Wind city.
