Cloudbuilt is a nerve-wracking futuristic free-running game of speed, precision and freedom.

Use your rocket-powered exoskeleton and manipulate the laws of physics to avoid fatal hazards, dodge hostile robots and reach not just the finish line, but the top of the worldwide leaderboards too.
Cloudbuilt offers a thrilling free-running experience for gamers – packed with progressively challenging levels, as well as all manner of shortcuts and secrets to discover, its fast-paced competitive action will push the limits of gamers seeking a challenge time and time again.

“Steam’s Greenlight is a great indicator of what people want to play and Cloudbuilt breezed through this process due to its refreshing take on the platform genre,” said Martin Defries, managing director & COO of Rising Star Games. “As a community-driven publisher we are delighted to release a title with such great feedback and we’re confident that Cloudbuilt will further enhance our growing Steam library. The hardworking team at Coilworks has produced a fantastic game and we can’t wait to see which routes players take for the fastest times.”

“We were thrilled from the very start that Rising Star Games were so excited about Cloudbuilt, and their passion for the project is really motivating for the team here at Coilworks, making it very easy for us to work together,” said Martin Löwgren, co-founder and CEO of Coilworks. “Making games is something we know how to do, but being a small indie start-up involves so much more than that, and we are super happy to have such a great opportunity to work with an experienced publisher like Rising Star Games.”

Cloudbuilt’s digital PC release includes the following features:

  • Over 20 levels with many different routes to each finish line
  • Four alternate endings
  • Branching level selection
  • Retro-inspired soundtrack
  • Organic learning curve; discover new skills you never knew you had

Prior to Rising Star Games’ deal with Coilworks, Steam users voted in their droves to have Cloudbuilt added to Valve’s service via Steam Greenlight.
