After years of space travel disaster strikes however, and your ship is destroyed when approaching the planet…”

Highfleet

developed by Konstantin Koshutin  |  Platforms: Windows, Mac, Linux

“A strategic survival game with arcade air combat.”

Set in a world inspired by Dune, Russian aristocrats take to the skies to battle over precious resources, technology, and to regain lost lands.  You assemble ships by putting together various models.  The developer previously created Hammerfight, which seems to have quite a bit of a cult following.  Highfleet is a spiritual “successor”, but appears to be a prequel.  It’s scheduled to be released later in 2016.

Other than on Twitter, you can follow the development here (which is in Russian).  If there are any errors in the information above, it’s because Google Translate failed me, sorry. >.<

I absolutely love the art, setting, and juiciness of the combat.  Hope this gets the attention it deserves (and turns out to be actually good!)

“A rogue-lite river journey through the backwaters of a forgotten post-societal America. Forage, craft, evade predators.

“Travel by foot and by raft down a procedurally-generated river as you scrounge for resources, craft tools, remedy afflictions, evade the vicious wildlife, and most importantly, stay ahead of the coming rains.”

It’s out on Steam and Xbox One today.  Love the art direction.

Blast through the terrain to uncover precious artifacts and materials you can use to fuel your quest to become a wealthy baron in the stars. Along the way, discover oddities, raise questions, and uncover mysteries.
