One by one, everyone left the once bustling village for the city. Everyone, except Talma. Now approaching the end of her days, she maintains a simple, solitary way of life, surviving, subsisting, tending to her homestead and her goats.
Develop your own personal routine as you care for your farm and your animals. Tend to your goats, make cheese with their milk, collect eggs and cook meals, grow vegetables and barter with the travelling merchant who brings increasingly disturbing letters from your family in the city.
A follow up to the critically acclaimed Where the Goats Are, The Stillness of the Wind is a quiet rumination on life and loss.

So Good and So Short.
Beautiful story, but dear GOD!! Five dollars for the shortest game of my life. If the storyline was more spaced out and the days were longer to focus on growing the farm, this game would be a 5/5, no problem. But before I knew it, it was night time as soon as I got up.. and everything on my farm was dead, even though the game does give you opportunity to guard it, the opportunities fell through. I understand why the days grew shorter, and yes it added to the storyline, but there is absolutely no being at least somewhat successful in this game. There isn’t any “winning”, which I understand (the storyline is the main focal point, and once again, it's beautiful). Unfortunately at the same time, I’m completely upset I spent this much for such a short game. I loved that I was able to support the artists, in a way they did an amazing job of creating the feeling of wanting more. But I feel in the end I spent way too much money for such an abrupt stop. It was an excellent game, I just wish that it was either a lower price for the amount of gameplay, or a greater amount of gameplay for the higher price.
Love the game but the control and way too short of days!
I get stuck in the cheese maker barn all the time. She just won’t move! Then I want to drop a bucket to greet the mail guy but can’t sometimes and he goes away even though I’m chasing him like a foot behind! I have two goats but don’t have time to milk both and finish one cheese till the mailman gets there and then it’s like 1 minute till dark. No time to water the crops much less get eggs. Explore? How? I can make one time around the property before the day is 3/4ths over. One trip to the well, water 5 crops plus get some eggs equated to a day. Forget milking the goats of making cheese which is what you trade for. Don’t grow flowers.. waste of my energy. You move at the pace of an old lady and I get she’s the point but I just don’t see how I could ever save anything throughout to make the game seem like I’m getting anywhere. I had 3 shotgun shells and I hit both wolves but in the morning one of my goats was still gone. I just get no where.. oh and where the hell os the phone? It rings.. I look all around and bap at the telephone pole.. nothing for me.
Such a beautiful, unique game but...
So many game breaking bugs. I want to give this 5 stars really badly (and probably will in the future) but it’s impossible to do so in good conscience in its current state. Pots/cans getting permanently stuck in walls causing you to reinstall the entire game because you can’t restart it from the menu, losing all future progress towards wheels of cheese because you get tired in the middle of making one, the merchant stealing the billy goat back from you the day after you spend a pretty penny to buy it from him, wolves seemingly unaffected by the shotgun, etc. etc. etc. Obviously it’s about fighting a losing battle of attrition which inevitably always ends the same, but regardless of that, it’s impossible to play this and fully enjoy yourself as it is right now. When these bugs all get patched and worked out I’ll revise this review but as it is you should probably stay away from this game.
