What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“To put it plainly, the game isn't finished yet. There are so many more features and content I want to add. Over the past 2 years of development, the game has taken different forms, going from 1D to 2D movement to exploring around. As the basic elements of the game have now been finalized, it is time to move on to adding more layers of strategy, complexity, and content to the game.

In addition, I am not a perfect developer, I'm actually really far from it. So as each update comes out, there will probably be some crashes or bugs or awful design choices that are made. I fully intend to fix these and create a not only a stable, but fun and exciting experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This game will probably stay in Early Access till most of the major features have been implemented, which realistically might go until Winter 2022.”

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

“The full version is going to include the following features that will be added as the game progresses through Early Access:
- More items
- Mod support
- A Cool Storyline
- Background lore
- Environments
- Weather
- Day/Night
- Police, bounty hunters, invasions”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game has taken on a new form with the recent launch of the Exploration Update and is both playable and fun, however lacks serious replayability and has some design flaws that need to be addressed to provide a better experience.

The current features are show below under the About this Game section.

The game may contain bugs or experience crashes occasionally, which I hope to iron out as Early Access progresses.”

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

“Since more features and content will be shipped in the full release, I plan on raising the price to reflect the content and quality of the game.”

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

“I rely a lot on community support. I enjoy dialoguing directly with players and listening to what they want to get added into the game.

Community engagement will be primarily through the Discord server. I have polls, and often ask directly what they think about certain concepts or ideas that could be added into the game. There are also factions in Discord with game related challenges to participate in.

With Steam, I intend to do my best to support mods that are easy for anyone in the community to create and use.”

About This Game

Build and battle floating islands in the skies! Fly around the realms of a shattered world and interact with an assortment of islands and factions! Battle procedurally generated enemies, sometimes even more than one at a time!


Build your powerful island from loads of blocks and attachments with the island editor. Place your blocks to form your base island, then load up on weapons, shields, reactors, batteries and so much more to try and give yourself the best advantage in combat. Assign weapons and modules to any keybind you desire, all configurable from the super easy to use editor.


As the saying goes, there's more than one way to blow up a floating island! Take out all their floatrons to make them fall out of the sky or destroy their warp core and watch their island explode in a fiery inferno!


Explore a vast realm, with factions, cities, and pirates! Find abandoned regions and grab some free loot, or a merchant with powerful items to sell! Encounter different enemy classes, with a variety of strengths and weaknesses! Every island is procedurally generated, so each encounter will be unique!


Collect items to maximize your island's potential! Forge items together to upgrade them from the bronze tier to the crystal tier! Every single item has the potential to be unique, and almost every property can be upgraded by tech. Infuse tech into items to give them cool buffs like damage penetration, increased health, or reduced cooldowns!

With over 150 items, and with over 50 item properties and behaviors, the possibilities are endless!
