Winds Of Trade is a strategy game about running an ocean trading company in the 18th and 19th centuries. Building your trading empire will not be your only goal! Ruthless pirates, shady smugglers, wartime and fierce competitors will make the way to the top a long and hard road for you!


The Main Game Features includes:

•   Procedurally generated worlds: You will face different challenges and you will have to learn how the cities’ production chains interact every time you start a new game.
•   Realistic economic simulation: All prices respond to the basic laws of supply and demand. Every raw material comes from somewhere and every final product goes somewhere to be bought. No arbitrary game rules set, just the will of the free market.
•   Smuggling: Some goods that can be freely bought in one city may be illegal someplace else... Are you willing to take risks for some extra profit?
•   Smart Artificial Intelligence opponents that will make your way to the top even more challenging!
•   Dynamic world economy: Events such as forest fires, bad harvests or war alter the supply, demand and prices of the different commodities.
•   Contracts system: You can accept contracts from governments, private companies and even shady smugglers in order to make some extra money transporting goods. But don't forget, failing comes with a price.
•   Turn based battle system: Pirates may attack you if your cargo is valuable enough... Do you have what it takes to defend yourself? Also, be very careful during wartime, especially if you are transporting weaponry or troops.
•   Your very own colonies: Once you are powerful enough you can found your own colonies in order to exploit natural resources and play with the rules of the market.
•   Own warehouses to accumulate goods and manipulate the market.
•   11 different ship types from the Age of Sailing, including brigs, galleons, fluyts, frigates and schooners.
•   Automatic Trade Routes: Once your fleet is big enough you can make scripts for your ships to follow and they will trade according to your rules automatically.
•   Improve your ships' stats by hiring experienced captains or purchasing upgrades.
•   Stock market: Invest in companies, help them sell their goods worldwide and collect the profits.
•   Corruption simulation system: Obtain an advantage over your opponents by bribing corrupt governments.
•   Dynamic weather simulation.
•   A rich and immersive soundtrack.

Overview of the updates to come!
Winds Of Trade - Winds Of Trade

Hello everyone! Just wanted to let you know that the next release of Winds Of Trade is going to include a new "Jumbo" map size. Many of you have been asking for bigger maps, with more cities, more countries and more business possibilities... So we're going to deliver just that!

It's still being tested and not ready to be released yet, but we're confident we can fix the remaining issues (mainly performance ones) and ship this exciting feature in the next update!

To know more about the features that will be added to the game soon, please visit our Dev Blog here: http://devblog.windsoftrade.net/2017/05/exciting-news-about-map-sizes.html

WoT updated to version 1.3!
Winds Of Trade - Winds Of Trade

Hello everyone! We're happy to announce the new 1.3 update is now live! This update includes the following new features and fixes:
•   New Jumbo Size Maps: This is one of the features our players requested the most. And we are always listening! You will be able to continue playing in the 'normal' size maps, but you also will be able to start new games in the new 'jumbo' size maps, that have 125% more surface area than the 'normal' ones. Also, more countries and more cities provide experienced players with a more challenging and vastly improved experience.
•   Autosave: This was another feature that lots of people asked for, and it's finally here! If you go to the options menu and enable the "autosave" checkbox the game will be automatically saved every three months of game play. Neat, eh?
•   Performance Improvements: We've also been working hard in some performance improvements to the supply/demand and prices simulation. Now it runs three times faster than it used to! This was crucial in order to keep the simulation running at a decent speed in the new jumbo maps, as they have many more countries and cities that need to be simulated.
•   User Interface Improvements: The Cities Window now lists all warehouses you own and their current contents. You can also filter cities to only see those that produce a specific resource.
•   The minimap in the lower left corner is now automatically hidden when you go to the strategic view mode. I mean, why would you want to have two identical maps in sight at the same time? :)
•   Some other minor UI improvements: Now when you return from battle the camera will automatically focus on your surviving ships (if any!) so you can take appropriate action, like taking your ships to the nearest shipyard to repair them. Also, now when you change the value of an input field in the automatic trading route window, the corresponding checkbox will automatically be checked.
•   Minor improvements to the AI algorithms so opponents take smarter decisions about contracts and buying / selling goods.
•   Fixed broken texts when one of your opponents is bankrupt and you go to the strategic view mode.
•   Fixed bug that caused lightning sound effects to ignore the sound effects volume slider.
