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 – all 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 have been chosen to take control over the flying city in this relentless and unique strategy-blend that combines the best elements of the city-building and survival-game genres. Rebuild and protect a society in a seemingly uninhabitable environment. Utilize the Anti-Gravitation device to navigate your flying city across the globe into the treacherous unknown. Stay vigilant, as each decision could have ghastly consequences; be prepared to lay it all on the line to succeed, else losing everything you worked for.

Sphere – Flying Cities 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 Scientist in Space: Research new technologies to improve the efficiency of every aspect of your city and withstand a plethora of unnatural 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 sacrifice of the few – sacrifices are an inevitable imperative.

Sphere – Flying Cities will make its debut on Steam via Early Access on October 14th, 2021, and will be available for £14.99 / €17.99.
