War Wind is a 1996 real-time strategy game in the vein of Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness. It was developed by DreamForge Intertainment and published by Strategic Simulations, Inc. It runs on Microsoft Windows and used DirectX 2.0. A sequel to War Wind, titled War Wind II: Human Onslaught, was released by DreamForge and SSI in 1997. Both games were digitally re-released on GOG.com.
Some sites list the release date of War Winds as Aug. 24, 19 while others say Sept. 30, 1996. The most recent file on a War Wind CD bought in the U.S. in January 1997 was Oct. 10, 1996 (as is the date stated in its version 1.0 README.TXT), but this could have been an updated CD release.
Story and background
War Wind takes place on the world of Yavaun, where four races have co-existed for millennia. The Tha'Roon are the thinkers, leaders and overlords of the planet. They have dominated the other races on the globe. In particular, the Tha'Roon have enslaved the tree-like Eaggra, forcing them to act as their builders and engineers. The Tha'Roon accomplish this through their bullying and domination of the Obblinox, slow-moving but extremely strong silicon lifeforms specialized in cyborgs. Lastly are the reclusive Shama'Li, monk-like practitioners of magic, who desire to unify the four races.
The basic gameplay is very similar to other real-time strategy games such as the Warcraft series. A game starts with a clan leader, and usually some workers and a token defence force. The player must use these workers to build structures and mine for resources. Some unique features differentiate the game from others in the genre. For example, in order to get any combat unit other than mercenaries, a worker must be trained at a particular type of building. In order to receive a higher level combat unit, a lower-level unit must be promoted at a specific facility. Additionally, units can be individually upgraded in a variety of areas such as speed, strength, resilience, stealth, and vision. The purpose for these micro upgrades is to encourage more strategic conflicts, wherein a player must make the most of small numbers of units instead of building a large force and rushing the opponent.
