If you have any questions about the game, post them here.

A few FAQs:

1. The contrast looks a bit low.
The game has crisp, high-contrast graphics. YouTube destroyed the quality because it can't handle moving camera footage. For a better example, see the screenshots on the Greenlight page.

2. It doesn't seem obvious when you hit another player.
Hitting other players is obvious in-game and involves sound effects, animations, and number popups. I disabled the UI and some effects for recording purposes.

3. Why did you include footage of the map being made?
Cult of the Wind features a robust map editor designed to be usable by anyone. All maps are made entirely in-game and can be instantly shared with anyone. The trailer map is approximately 26 kilobytes compressed.

4. What separates this from other third-person shooters?
a) Damage is based on speed, so camping and sniping are impossible.
b) Bonuses are provided for 'flying' in squadrons.
c) Gameplay is extremely vertical, featuring minimal falling damage and the ability to be flung high in the air. When players fall long distances, they enter a 'skydive mode.'
d) Characters are physics-enabled. They bank while turning and have a heavier, vehicular feel. It feels good.
e) Gameplay mechanics are based on level design. Essentially any gameplay mode can be crafted by players based on how they build the maps. It doesn't have to be capture-the-flag or deathmatch. It can be a race, a jumping puzzle, an obstacle course, etc.
