Non-combat sandbox Wander reveals new video

    
66

Remember Wander, the unique, upcoming sandbox that eschews combat for exploration? Creator Loki Davison has posted a new video for the game today along with a new creature, character renders, and an amusing reveal on skydiving and flight.

For those of you who’ve ever gazed into the infinite depths of the sky and thought: “Man, I’d sure like to fall like, a really long way down, and maybe land on a friendly griffin while I’m at it”… well, soon you can! You’ll be able to skydive! I don’t know about you all, but I think that’s freaking rad, and a really good incentive for you to make friends with some griffins. “But, Crystal,” you say. “I just want to take a regular, non-death-defying ride on a griffin!” Well, to this I reply: why do you hate joy? And also, you can totally do that! If you’re a hira, and you have a griffin pal who is willing, you can ask them if you can “hop on” for a jaunty ride! This is an awesome way to get places faster, especially if one of you really wants to show the other one something amazing. Just don’t be too offended if your offer is refused. Maybe the griffin just thinks you’re not ready to move to that stage in your relationship yet, so just chill, bro.

We’ve got the video below, and you can check out the renders on the official site.

We’re seeing lots of attempts at innovation and breaking out of MMO stagnation on the PVP side of things, so it is wonderfully refreshing to see that some people are giving care and attention to a radically NON combative approach. 

Even though I don’t think violence in videogames in any way causes negative behavior, it’ll be a nice change of pace to play something that elicits happiness, delight, and innocent play more than struggle, hostility, and others-as-enemy.

Gylnne Rozyn Yinta Maybe in a different capacity than his last run, but I, for one, am not supporting reviews of little facebook cash shop clickers.

I will play this.

Someone referred to Myst below. There have been other quite beautiful iOS games that have had exploration/puzzle solving such as Monument Valley, and another small one called Windosil. 

I am a bit over games where the core gameplay is killing stuff. I especially hate (and refuse to play) gun-based games and no way will I let my kids anywhere near them.
