Love the play style and art just as much as I did Faith, I wish there was a longer and more fleshed out version of this game.

nice horror game in retro style

gameplay pt-br

airdorf - pixelgod of horror 

Loved it!

Better than the movie lol.  Really though, probably the spookiest MSDOS style horror game ever.

Love settings like this, in the middle of nowhere with supernatural stuff going on. 

nice short game, i had no idea it was based off a movie 

Incredibly horrifying.  One of the best short horror games ever.  Perfect use of DOS style graphics and sound.

Excellent adaptation! Again I'm amazed at how well this style works with creepy horror tropes. Nicely done!



I remember playing some of your games on Dread XP Collections. They were very good games. And this one is no different. Congrats.


Graphics are quite cool

Simple but effective. :) Good bait for the film.


I wouldn't call this a real game, it's too short and easy

Good as ever.


No Commentary :)

awesome game bro

I watched the movie after seeing this game on your page, did really enjoy it.


Bro you make the best games like, ever

No lies or jokes, thank you Airdorf, You put so much effort into games that we only enjoy for a minute or so

Godspeed with your amazing games bro


Short but interesting. The Wind is a fun bitesized promotional teaser from the creator(s) of Faith.

Nice. And short. Gorgeous pixel art!

I loved the atmosphere of this game, the atari-esque graphics and sound design go really well with survival horror. Have not seen the movie yet, but the game does a good job in the storytelling department too.

Go see the movie!

May I have the soundtrack for this?
Tunes are great!


The game assets are owned by IFC Films so I don鈥檛 feel comfortable sending the soundtrack to you. 

Thanks anyway.

Being a big fan of the game, Faith, I was so excited to play another game like that. This was so much fun!! My favorite day was Day 3. I thought that one was the creepiest!! Anyway, I look forward to more games by Airdorf. 馃榿


oh very cool. a game is an interesting way to promote a movie, i'll definitely be checking it out!!
