Merchant of the Skies was just announced this week, a peaceful trading game with a little base-building management thrown in.
In Merchant of the Skies you're the captain of an airship! Sell items, gather resources and build your own trade empire in the clouds! Merchant of the Skies is the trading game with light base-building and tycoon elements. You start off as a captain of a small cloudship and work your way towards establishing your own trade company.
This is the fifth commercial game from Coldwild Games, following on from Blades of the Righteous, Frequent Flyer, Lazy Galaxy and Lazy Galaxy: Rebel Story (which now seems to go by 'Rebel Story: A Roguelike Bullet Hell').
Take a look at the teaser:
- Become a trader! Find the best trade routes and profit from them
- Discover the world! Travel between flying isles and face different encounters
- Sandbox gameplay: do what you want at your own pace
- Gain experience and become more savvy when it comes to trading, then start your own goods production
Looks like it could be pretty sweet, not that the trailer really gives a great idea of what it will be like as it's only a short teaser. It's going to enter Early Access with support for Linux on May 30th.
If interested, you can wishlist and follow it on Steam.
