Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind Press Kit:
Six Ages 2: Lights Going Out is a combination of interactive story and turn-based strategy, that immerses you in a land of myth.
Hundreds of small interactive stories build into an epic, where you guide a small clan, help them navigate a dying world, and survive until it ends.
Six Ages 2 is the sequel to Six Ages and a spiritual successor to the acclaimed King of Dragon Pass, which first used this approach to explore the magical world of Glorantha. All three games blend roleplaying, mythology, resource management, and decisions with long-term consequences. There are no other games like them.
Lights Going Out is envisioned as the second loosely linked game. It and Ride Like the Wind can be played in any order, letting you continue the story of your clan over hundreds of years.
Glorantha is a Bronze Age world, similar in many ways to our own. But it exists in a magical universe where the laws of physics are subordinate to the whims of the gods and spirits. To understand Glorantha, leave our mundane world and enter the world of myth. The Sun is a living god, not a nearby star. Countless gods exist, some even more powerful than the Sun, and all have the power to directly affect humanity.
King of Dragon Pass had its origins in a tabletop RPG game run by David Dunham. It explored some of the backstory of Glorantha, as described in Greg Stafford’s novel King of Sartar. This became the computer game King of Dragon Pass, which was originally released in 1999, and remastered in 2011 (for iOS and then other platforms).
In 2010, David had an idea for six short tabletop RPG campaigns. They would explore the same clan at different periods of history. In 2014, he realized that this could be the basis for a game that wasn’t a literal sequel to King of Dragon Pass, but could be an inspired reworking.
The first Six Ages game, Ride Like the Wind, was released in June 2018.
David and a talented team of freelancers began work on Six Ages 2 in September 2018.
