Windswept is an upcoming classic style platformer coming in 2025


Windswept is an upcoming indie platformer inspired by classic platformers from the Super Nintendo era.

InΒ Windswept, players control a duo of animal friends and combine their unique abilities to solve puzzles and to jump, dash, and bash enemies. The game appears to be heavily influenced by Donkey Kong Country (there’s even a Bramble Blast inspired level you can see in the trailer).

Our feather-shelled heroes were swept away by a storm, and they need your help!

In this ’90s-inspired platforming adventure, take on over forty handcrafted stages to discover the secrets of their world, the moon and beyond!

Windswept Features:

  • Linear platforming adventure containing a bunch of secrets and collectibles to uncover
  • Huge world spanning 5 regions with a few friends to meet along the way
  • An additional out-of-this-world challenge for the bravest adventurers wanting to push themselves to their limit
  • Simple controls with lots of movement variety
  • Play as a tag-team Duck & Turtle duo by yourself or grab a friend for real-time local co-op

Are you ready to be swept away?

We’re big fans of platformers, so we’re looking forward to seeing more. Thankfully indie developers are showcasing their talent in this classic genre.

Windswept is expected to release sometime in 2025 on PC (via Steam) and yet unnamed consoles.
