What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have many ideas how AIRHEART should be in a final version. But we don't want to go that way by ourself. We want to work with all your feedback to improve our game towards a goal you helped us to define. We are sure, that you will give us lot of great ideas, which will make AIRHEART better than we ever could imagine.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We want to release the full version only when we and the community think that the game is ready. We estimate that this will be in Summer 2017.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The final version of the game will include a lot more of airplanes, levels, opponents, maybe a multiplayer with a racing touch etc.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It is neither content nor feature complete. We'll start with 3 airplanes, 8 levels, 2 bosses 6 types of fish and 10 weapons.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We don't know the final prize of AIRHEART yet.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The people who love AIRHEART are a vital part of our development process. Features we implement are discussed to gather feedback. We also encourage our community to suggest their own ideas here on our steampage.”

We did some spring cleaning and made the game work better. Some of you reported frame rate issues and we took care of that. Hope now you will have even more fun while playing!
There are also some new creatures in the sky.

Performance boost
We optimized memory handling. The gameplay is definitely more smooth now.

Sea turtle
Catching it is tricky - try it!

Firefish
It wouldn't be scary in the ocean, but in the sky - it is.

Damselfish
It attracts other fish. Try to keep it on your harpoon for a while...

Downtint shaders
It should be more clear now, what is in your current layer and what is below.

Harpoon improvements
Using harpoon is now a much better experience.

AI improvements
Pirates are still not the brightest bulbs in the sky, but they are learning.

Let us know, how do you like the new update!

About This Game



AIRHEART is a dieselpunk action game about a young woman, who flies her airplane and catches skyfish among beautiful sky islands. Amelias biggest dream is to reach the stratosphere and to bring down the legendary Skywhale, which promises riches and fame for a lifetime.

In the world she lives in, fishing isn’t a hobby - it’s a risky and competitive job. Amelia needs to venture deep into deadly territory, avoiding sky pirates and automated security drones.

Dive in the beautiful but dangerous world of flying islands, reach higher and higher, buy new airplane parts and weapons you need. Could you be the one to bring down the skywhale?





Navigate your beloved airplane through the skylayers above the city of Granaria. Don’t crash or get shot, remember to always go back home safe.


Catch fish and sell them to buy a new equipment. Be careful, some of them will try to hunt... YOU!


Build your airplane and weaponry and remember: with the sky pirates the best defense is a good offense.


Use your harpoon to reel in really big fish, disassemble your enemies or even steal their weaponry!


Find launch bases to advance to ever higher skylayers and check what waits for you on the way to the stratosphere!


Get ready to fight powerful bosses to advance. Being sky fisher(wo)man is not a piece of cake.


Analyse scraps to craft blueprints to build new parts or buy them in the shop and prepare yourself to explore more and more dangerous places.


You know those hypnotizing beautiful flowers, which hunt bugs? Well, that’s a great metaphor for the world of AIRHEART.


A custom made soundtrack promises to keep you energized and ready for the adventure!


We are working on ever more complex levels to bring hours and hours of fun.


As always there is also a core message where we’d like to talk about some real world problems such as overfishing.



AIRHEART continues the story of Amelia, who in “Cloud Chasers” was trying to reach the Above, a city residing on a giant flying island in the clouds, where there is enough water for everybody. She travelled through the deserts with her father Francesco, dealing with all the dangers of the migration on their path.

Francisco sacrificed himself to have Amelia finally reach the Above, but that city called Granaria seems not as welcoming, as she hoped it will be. It is a harsh society with a strong class system. Disillusioned, miserable and alone, Amelia worked as a child labourer in an airplane factory for years. Clawing he way up, she works now as a part-time fisherman and part-time mechanic at a small corner-shop fixing airplanes.
She tries to make her way to a better life.

The problem of overfishing of the sea ecosystem is one of the topic we want to add to gameplay in AIRHEART.
Overfishing is one of the biggest resource problems of the world. In our universe, fish are a seemingly unlimited resource that can be harvested into cash. Over time, this gives us the possibility make the resource scarcer for every player, transforming the lush seas of the sky into a battle zone, where fighting is essential to survive.



We are Blindflug Studios, an indie game studio from Switzerland. Here's what we do: we create beautiful, imaginative and incredibly splendid games, that center around complex, real world dilemmas and through that might create interesting new game mechanics.*
