'Sphere - Flying Cities' Announced, Comes to Steam Early Access This Fall - Screens & Trailer

Sphere - Flying Cities is a sci-fi citybuilder which combines strategy, simulation, and survival elements in an extraordinary and immersive scenario.

Utilizing a mix of strategy, simulation, and survival elements, Sphere ensures there’s no limit to the truly extraordinary, immersive gameplay scenarios that can be constructed.

In the not-so-distant future, Earth’s moon has been struck by a massive asteroid. With the fallout rendering the terrestrial surface uninhabitable, the ecosystem of the planet collapses. Facing complete annihilation, humanity makes one final and desperate attempt to survive — thanks to newly-created anti-gravity technology, the first (and possibly last) faction of flying cities ascends as the ultimate bastion of the human race. 

As Commander, you’ve been granted an impossible task: rebuild, restructure, and protect the last of society in an uninhabitable environment. Your primary weapon and invaluable tool? An anti-gravity device you’ll use to navigate the upper atmosphere and the daunting unknown. Stay vigilant, as each decision could have ghastly consequences; be prepared to lay it all on the line to succeed, else risk losing everything you worked for.

Sphere - Flying Cities is expected to launch on Steam Early Access in Fall 2021.

The Early Access version of Sphere - Flying Cities offers a gaming experience of multiple hours. The economic circuits of the flying city are fully working and you will have to keep your colony functioning in the face of dangers while searching for raw resources. You can improve the flying city through the development of technologies and upgrades and immerse yourself into the fantastic world of Sphere. But remember, this is a survival citybuilding game – so any wrong decision will have severe consequences.

The full version of Sphere - Flying Cities will provide a deeper and more atmospheric game experience. It will include new features like oxygen management, additional buildings, more animations and effects as well as additional story-telling elements. Of course, we also aim to include as much of your feedback as possible.

Key Features:

  • 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.

Sphere - Flying Cities is coming to PC (Steam) in 2022.
