Cloudbase Prime is now out of Early Access! Enjoy 1.0!



I started working on Cloudbase Prime in 2012. I've only been working on it full-time since September 2015, but it's been quite the ride! I'm very, very happy to say that Cloudbase Prime 1.0 is out now!

There's a launch discount, so there's no need to delay buying Cloudbase Prime! Selling well helps Cloudbase Prime do better on the Steam front page, especially during this launch window.

Even though the game's officially released, I'm still listening to your feedback! Feel free to drop by the Steam forums or the game's Discord server.

The changes since the last release candidate are minor, but here they are:

1.0RC2 - 1.0.1 change list:

  • Gamepad users only: Strategy HUD button binding was visible on-screen in an annoying fashion until the player unlocked their first power (probably on level 1-1).
  • Strategy HUD UI misbehaved if the player paused/unpaused just after unlocking their first power.
  • Game over menu buttons and cursor became less reliable if the player was riding a jet dragon, or other large moving objects.
  • Rapid-fire clicking with the charge shot equipped sounded unpleasant.

Cloudbase Prime RC 2 is out now! And check out the Discord server!

Chances are very high that this release candidate will simply get renamed and released as 1.0. Which is good, because we're very close to release :P!

I've fixed some straggling annoyances and bugs in this release. None of them were terrible issues, but I'd rather push these fixes out now than after release. They're a nice bit of polish and testing is good.

Come check out Cloudbase Prime's official Discord server! It's great if you want to talk about Cloudbase Prime, or just hang out with me on a chat server.

I've been updating store pages, the website, and piles of other web stuff to get ready. It's annoying but exciting work. Also, the loading icons on cloudbaseprime.com are now crudely animated fixbots! Yesss.


Also, I've made the "Recommended Gamepad + Mouse Aim" Steam controller configuration official, meaning it should be what's used by default for first-time users.

If you're into gyro aim, I do recommend trying out the "Recommended Gamepad + Mouse Aim AND Gyro" configuration! I just suspect gyro aim isn't for everyone.

Full change list:

Fixed:

  • player no longer shoots after respawning or loading a level
  • going back and forth between a mouse and a gamepad works in the options menu now (really helps Steam Controller users!)
  • move tutorial text for gamepads/joysticks improved (no longer lists individual stick axes)
  • in-game tutorials no longer enable the cursor before the actual tutorial opens
  • Improved the 4-2 submenu in the level picker: buttons are more readable now, 4-2:score attack button now hides properly.
  • increasing auto-quality requirements to be more in-line with beta behavior, cleared old auto-quality data (this will result in one slightly slower startup, but will be cached after that!)

“Great visuals, fun gameplay and hilarious audio make this a game we can't recommend highly enough.”

“Ridiculous, Over-the-Top, Hilarious and Simply Spectacular.”

“This is a lovely, weird little FPS that more people should try. Not quite like anything else on PC.”

About This Game


You are lost in the depths of a gas giant mining station where things have gone very, very wrong. Move terrain to clear paths, defeat enemies, and launch yourself skyward. Get ready to shoot a lot of robots and jump into the colorful clouds of Cloudbase Prime!

The abandoned world in those clouds is full of weird and wonderful dangers. Discover friendly robots, discover murdery robots, grappling-hook onto enemy airships, fight giant bosses, and swim inside huge floating jellyfish.



Find new weapons and powers for your robot suit as you explore. You don't need them to win, but they're definitely worth finding!

Launch shockwaves through terrain that fling dozens of enemies into the air. Block homing missiles and cross gaps with hex tiles you've created out of thin air. Destroy your enemies with a good old fashioned death beam. Your weapons and ammo can be customized at any point, after you've found them! Charge shot + combust ammo? Homing shot + freeze ammo? Delicious!



Here's the kind of stuff you'll do while playing Cloudbase Prime:
  • Jump
  • Shoot
  • Jump while shooting
  • Blow up mech walkers leg by leg and then watch their stupid heads roll off a cliff and fall into the clouds below
  • Raise/lower terrain to open paths, launch enemies, launch yourself, or stop a homing missile from hitting you in the face
  • Upgrade your robot suit with new weapons, powers, and ammo to use in fast, bouncy combat
  • Slow down time to select from your powers and weapons at a leisurely pace via the strategy HUD
  • Launch yourself with terrain to fly high and charge your boost engines
  • Discover why robots are mutating and acting all evil via fully animated and voiced in-game story bits
  • Save lots of grinning fixbots
  • Blow up some real big bosses
  • Explore varied levels, plumbing the weird depths of a gas giant's robotic wilderness. Climb huge robotic trees, ride a jet dragon, swim inside giant floating jellyfish, and find lost cities in the clouds!
