The Game:
An old nemesis returns but only as a forbearer of something even more malevolent in the epic Weather Lord: Following the Princess! The power to command powerful weather systems are still yours as you set off on a journey to rescue a princess from captivity, rebuild a ravaged land, and stop a relentless force from destroying the magical Kingdom of Lorraine!

As you progress, you'll help the natives by gathering resources, rebuilding their villages, and completing quests, using sunlight, rain, wind, and thunder to replenish crops, eliminate ghosts and bandits, and remove obstacles. You can complete these tasks however you choose: you can either work quickly to reap the best rewards, or take your time and enjoy the colorful graphics, captivating music, and addictive gameplay!
Weather Lord: Following the Princess is the fifth game in this creative builder franchise! The princess has been held captive in her own tower and it is your mission to help her out and to stop the evil force that destroyed the beautiful Kingdom of Lorraine.
The game tells a rather predictable story that has been reused countless times in Time Management games. Still, we found the storyline to be quite cute and a great tool to drive the game forward. Unfortunately, there are no voice-overs during the cutscenes and conversations, so the dialogs can sometimes be a little bit dry.
Regardless, Weather Lord: Following the Princess does feature some stunning graphics. The visuals are stunning in every way; the artwork looks splendid, the colors are well-matched and the visual effects are just enough to grab our attention. On the other hand, we found the music to be quite distracting. Although they are upbeat and fun, they get very repetitive after a while.
screen10

screen11
The majority of Weather Lord: Following the Princess plays like any other builder/resource-management games, but there are a few exciting twists as well. As with every one of the previous Weather Lord game, you have the ability to control weather. In this installment, you can drag icons of Clouds, Sun and Tornado from the bottom of the screen to help with growing the resources or getting rid of the obstacles. Further, there are also useful Power-Ups which recharge over time. A new feature is also introduced in this sequel, the Artifacts. At the beginning of each level, you will be asked which three of the artifacts you have collected you would like to use in the level. Each artifact has varied functions and powers, so choose wisely!
As for the challenge of the gameplay, Weather Lord: Following the Princess comes in two modes: Expert and Casual (untimed). We like how the challenge level increases at a fairly stable rate – so it does not overwhelm beginners, at the same time, more advanced players won’t feel bored.

Conclusion:
I've only played the game for a short while, mainly to see if there were any issues, which there wern't, so haven't posted a conclusion. I'm not a great Time Management game enthusiast so would be a little negatively biased (though I try not to be when reviewing games) and with issues at home I don't have that much spare time at the moment, plus I've had five games to review over the last couple of days, which has left me with precious little time for other things. What I will say is that it looks like another decent Weather Lord game. Basically, it has similar gameplay to previous Weather Lord titles we've been given here.
Suggestions:
After you've had an opportunity to play today's giveaway please take a few moments to give some positive or negative feedback; for example, what you liked or disliked about the game, or how it could be improved. If you don't like the genre at all, please explain why and if any, what improvements would change your mind? If you don't have time to post a comment today, please do so at your convenience, thank you. If you wish to post a review or comment about the game at a later date, you can access the comments section by going to the game giveaways home page, then scroll to the bottom of the page where it says Archives and select the date the giveaway was live (giveaway days are in bold type). This will open up the appropriate page for you to post your comment or review. Alternatively, you can google the name of the game and include Gamegiveawayoftheday in the search. This should give you a list of links to whenever this game was given away.
There are thousands of subscribers to the game giveaway of the day every weekend which makes this an ideal forum for giving developers new or fresh ideas as to what their consumers (i.e you) would like to see in a game. For example, you could suggest extra content such as better or more original mini-games, or a level editor that you would like to see that would make it more appealing to you. Maybe you think the graphics are a little dated and are in need of re-skinning, or maybe you've just had enough of the genre and want to see something different or something with more originality? Giving such feedback instead of saying nothing or just saying this game is rubbish or good may bring more developers to the site, which could mean more and better games. Would 'you' give away thousands of copies of a game (or extra content for a game) away to a community that complains all the time instead of giving useful feedback? It only needs a few moments of your time.
screen14

screen15
This site could be transformed if only the community would be more forthcoming in their opinions of the games they are getting for free instead of complaining about the way this site has changed, for example, they don't like MPC games, they hate HOG's, have had enough of Match Three and Time Management games, or they want to see the latest version of Call of Duty or some other big name AAA game given away or that they don't like Steam games. If something isn't for you then please move on to the next giveaway, or check out the forums HERE, HERE and HERE, where a few members of the community post details of various free games and free game sites as well as links to various indie bundle sites etc; you never know, you may find something that really interests you.
If you miss today's game giveaway you can always get the game via MyPlayCity 24/7 HERE; or If you prefer to purchase the game you can get it HERE via Big Fish Games or via Steam HERE

Problems getting the game to work:
If you're having problems installing or activating or getting Weather Lord: Following the Princess to work please visit the FAQ's Thread HERE and read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted, for example, a common issue seen since the Themida wrapper was introduced three years ago is that some community members installation of the game are blocked by their security because Themida code has been known to hide malware, (usually an error message is flagged for example 'The executable is corrupted' even though in reality it is not); so as a precaution some anti malware programs will block and even delete the suspect installation files even though the files (i.e the setup, read me and setup.gcd files are actually totally free from malware. This issue can be solved either by rebooting your computer in safe mode with networking or a quicker method is to temporarily turn off your security software to allow the installation. You could also try whitelisting the setup.gcd file. In the almost 11 years this game giveaway site has been operating there has 'never' been a game given away that was infected with malware.
If for any reason you want to contact the giveaway team, for example, you have a game to offer the community, or are unable to download the latest game or other issues that the FAQ's thread or these comments don't cover or solve you can do so HERE
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank MyPlayCity for giving away Weather Lord: Following the Princess and also to the game giveaway team, as always, for securing other ways to get free games.

I really enjoyed playing the game. Weather Lord is one of my favourite games, but why does it only have 30 levels? There are still a lot of artifacts missing which to me indicates that there should be more levels, but I do not see them. Game is way too short. As a whole this one was not that hard to play. I like the way the weather systems are placed in one place and can be used to eliminate the enemy. Having artifacts you can choose from is also a bonus. I am looking forward to the next Weather Lord.

Hey White Rabbit :)
So glad to hear that your wife is recovering well :)
My thoughts and prayers are still with you both.
Many many thanks again for the time and effort you put into making these games available.
I know that I do not download much but I always like to see what is going and read the comments. What i like most is the lack of hiccups during download and/or installation/ and play. Have Win 10 which is not the happiest of creatures when it comes to programs, but the games you bring to our attention have worked fine up to now.
Thank you again for all your hard work and dedication.
Warm regards to you and yours
Sa

Thank you for your kind words Sa Nad, though I'm not actually responsible for getting the games. All I do is moderate the comments and post information about the game being given away. :)

HI!
Download was easy as well as opening. Game runs quite smoothly and graphics are very good!
The levels have been progressing fast for me. Typical of these type of games, you must follow the course
and complete one task at a time. I had put it to casual mode and might be more challenging in other.
I think its great for children and unsure what makes me like it more than some in this mode, but I did.
have a great week and hope all is well, Lee

The play is a little more complicated than the other ones in this series, and I can't seem to assign multiple people to a task, but the overall game is still fun and I like the storage of the weather abilities on the function line.

Weatherlord is my favorite series of time management games. Hidden Realm, Shaman, Successor's, Follow Princess, Legend Hero, Royal Holiday, and Graduation.
I enjoy this style of time management game because you are building something in different scenarios with little obstacles thrown in to make it challenging and interesting. There is a goal to achieve and a fun story line to follow and is not so difficult that scoring perfect on each level is quite possible with practice.
Thank you GOTD as this is where I first discovered the Weather Lord games AND many others that allow mini-breaks thru out the day or marathons late at night.
Healing energy to your wife White Rabbit.

Nice, detailed graphics, sounds and music are good. Gameplay (up to 3rd level so far) started out very linear but seems to be allowing more choices. Some things are not obvious, which adds to the sense of exploring and accomplishment. I like the game so far, thanks GGOTD and MyPlayCity for another fun one.

I've had this game on my computer for a while - probably my favourite genre of game. I play on the expert option, and have been able to obtain the gold level (fastest time) on every level (though some may have had to be played a few times to use the best strategy) except for the final level. I have completed it, but am determined to get the gold!! I enjoy all the games in the weather lord group, and look forward to a new one being produced soon!!
And welcome back, Whiterabbit!!

Love the Weather Lord games. They have gotten harder as more versions come out, which is not good for me, but I suppose it changes up the games so that they aren't all the same.

I finished this one and enjoyed as much as the others.

I like the download games.

all downloads are corrupted ??? what is wrong with GAOTD?
i don't wanna leave that website behind me

........................................Moderator comment.......................................

The giveaway downloads are not corrupted. Thousands of community members are downloading these games. If the files were corrupted we would be inundated with comments abot it. The problem /issue is from your side. Probably your security blocking the download. Try (at your pown risk) temporarily turning off your security. That should solve the issue. Read the readme it does mention this issue. The giveaway team have been giving games away for almost 11 years now and have NEVER given away a game that was infected so it's 99.99% certain that it is safe to turn off your security temporarily to get the game installed.

Sven, been on this site, and never gotten corrupted game, but since I got windows 10, I am unable to download UNLESS I shut off my virus protection to do so. I can choose to shut it down 10 min. to an hour. I run Avast as it is free, and have never had problem with that either. Hope this helps.

Sven, I have the same problem since I got windows 10. All download files seems to be corrupted. Maybe this is an issue with Windows 10?

Susan, on the other hand, those of us who don't want to do steam for security or other reasons appreciate that at least twice a week (usually) we have a game that can be downloaded without running a client, etc. A nice mix~
