About us & the project:

Passing By – A Tailwind Journey has been in the making since the end of 2018, when we were working on the first prototypes of the game at university. In 2021, the game was awarded the German Computer Games Awards (DCP) and the German Developer Awards (DEP) in the young talent category. Currently, we are in the final production phase and plan to release the game in 2023.

Passing By – A Tailwind Journey allows players to board a balloon ship and explore a colourful world of floating islands. They befriend fellow travellers and quirky islanders, must use their wits to solve immersive puzzles, and gather enough resources to continue to wherever the journey takes them.
