What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our studio has a big focus on community-based development and Early Access allows us to bring that community more closely into our development process. Our previous games greatly benefited from the community's engagement, so we want to involve them even earlier and Early Access allows us to do this!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Airborne Empire is planned to stay in Early Access for one year or longer.”

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

“The full version will have a bigger set of features and more content. We plan to add new building types, new biomes, new events/missions and expand the background story of the game. It will also be more polished, having gone through lots of testing and QA. We are also planning other Steam features such as trading cards and achievements. And finally, we're sure players will have lots of interesting ideas during Early Access which we will consider implementing as well.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“When we launch into Early Access, the most important features of the game will already be there: building, researching, balance, lift, movement, dialogue, and more. The launch version has an enjoyable gameplay loop, but is still a bit bare-bones, lacking content and polish. We also plan to add more story features, including side-quests and more wonders to discover. Also, there are certainly still some bugs that will need to be ironed out.”

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

“The price may increase moderately when we release out of Early Access.”

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

“We are planning to communicate with players about new features and ideas for the game and gather their feedback and bug reports through our Discord server. We’re looking forward to improving the game together with you!”

About This Game

Build your unique flying city

Airborne Empire is a one-of-a-kind Open World RPG City Builder. It challenges players to build, manage, and grow their own unique city in the skies. They traverse a vast and rich open world full of new dangers, exotic wonders, and many hidden treasures. They must manage lift, balance, and propulsion needed for a flying city. Sky pirates can upend the city’s tranquility, and players must defend their inhabitants – and the kingdoms below! – from destructive attacks. Only clever and daring leaders can grow and protect their homes, seek out and destroy enemy strongholds, and finally reunite the peoples of this world.

Research and discover through exploration

While exploring a variety of biomes, players find themselves deep in an open-world full of rich characters, dialogue choices, side-quests, and lost marvels. By helping the peoples below, they gain the knowledge to develop new technologies – including new lift, propulsion, and morale buildings. They’ll also gain access to better tools for defense – and offense – against the pirate threat; defense towers, cannons, and attack planes can be researched, upgraded, and augmented with the tools found by combing the world and unraveling its mysteries. With full systems for building upgrades, fires, sickness, injuries, light, morale, and augmentation relics, there is plenty of treasure to discover!

Reforge a harmonious world

If players can manage the challenges along this adventure, they’ll find themselves the leaders of a sprawling sky city, with enough prowess to defend against any incoming threats. It shall be the capital of a harmonious empire – the Airborne Empire of legend – reforged under their banners.
