The game is now available for Windows® users around the globe, so haul anchor and set a course for Origin or Gamersgate where the game can be purchased for USD $9.99/EUR €7.99/GBP £6.99.

The successor to indie cult-hit Ancient Trader, Fortune Winds: Ancient Trader contains all of the captivating gameplay and features that made the original game so compelling. Furthermore, it embellishes the experience with improved AI, additional player avatars and save game functionality. On its original release in 2010, Ancient Trader was lavished with praise from highly respected gaming publications Eurogamer and Edge Magazine, which both awarded the game an impressive 8/10.
