Arcen Games has thrown some pre-alpha footage of its upcoming exploration game A Valley Without Wind onto the webs. The game is set in a post-ice-age world, where survival is the only thing you need to focus on.

The world is procedurally generated, and spans far and wide. It's one of those 'make your own journey' setups, as you decide where to go and what to do. Perhaps you'll set up camp and explore the surrounding areas, or maybe you'll start walking in one direction and see where that takes you. Along the way, you'll find enemies and friendly survivors, and everything you do will affect the game world.

Dying moulds future stories too. If you get killed and continue on with a different character, other survivors will apparently remember your past hero. Sounds rather like a 2D take on Minecraft with plenty of story elements, perhaps? A public alpha is planned for March, so we don't have long to wait before we can check it out.

Don't worry about those running animations and the skyscrapers - apparently they'll be altered later on. Read more about A Valley Without Wind over at the official site.
