Hexagon Games has announced the survival city-builder Sphere – Flying Cities is launching in Early Access on Steam next month on the 14th of October. The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic future and sees players manage the well-being of the Earth’s very first flying city.
The city is inhabited by the planet’s last remaining humans. Utilizing a mix of strategy, simulation, and survival elements, Sphere ensures there’s no limit to the truly extraordinary and immersive gameplay scenarios that can be constructed.
The trailer (that you can check out below) focuses on the importance of your Sphere and how your skills are paramount to the survival of mankind.
Key Features of Sphere – Flying Cities:
- Build It and They Will Come: Erect a living, thriving city with over 30 different building types and maintain your ecosystem via resource management mastery and infrastructure supported by independent economic cycles
- Don’t Look Down: Ensure your anti-gravity device and its expanding deflector shield are kept in tip-top shape at all times, as an insufficient power supply will result in a quick (and painful) demise
- Send in the Robots: Utilize drones and other scout technologies in hazardous environments to quickly construct buildings, harvest resources, and search for stranded survivors. You may even find rare materials in uncharted territories!
- A Geologist in Space: Research new technologies to improve the efficiency of every aspect of your city and withstand a plethora of (un)natural disasters like geomagnetic storms, asteroids, and poisonous clouds
- A Delicate Ecosystem: The well-being of your people is crucial to the success of the mission. Carefully tend to the needs of your colonists by supplying food, healthcare, and shelter. But don’t forget, the survival of many may require the deaths of the few — sacrifices are an inevitable imperative.
Trying to keep a civilisation alive has never been so much fun. I wouldn’t know myself, I’m not a big fan of this genre but I have to say, the design and world of Sphere – Flying Cities is intriguing.
