Merchant of the Skies from Coldwild Games, seems like it could be an interesting resource management and trading game with you flying around the world in an airship. There's a new trailer and a delay in the release.
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.
Firstly, it's now going to release into Early Access on July 30th, the developer said this is due to it needing a bit more polish so it's ready for the masses to take a look. The core gameplay is apparently already there but they wish to have more of it for the initial release.
They also have a new trailer to give us more of an idea of what it actually plays like:
Feature reminder and highlight:
- 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
I did quite like their clicker game Lazy Galaxy, which is also available on Linux so I'm keen to see what else they can do. Could be a nice casual tycoon-styled strategy and trading game. I'm liking what I'm seeing so far, but it's still not giving me enough of an idea of what it will be like just yet. Hopefully a feature trailer will drop closer to the new release date.
Interested? You can follow/wishlist it on Steam.
