What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe that it is important to get Sky Trader in front of you as early as possible! This way, we can build the game that you want, not the game we think you want.

While we want to make sure you can play Sky Trader early, it is very important to us that you have an enjoyable experience. We will try our hardest to make sure the game is bug-free and full of awesome features!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We aren't entirely sure how long we will be in Early Access, honestly. We do want to move forward at a steady pace and regular releases of new content is very important to us. We plan on having four major areas included in the final game... we won't be leaving Early Access until they are finished.”

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

“The initial release of Sky Trader will include the first of four major areas. It will also include three playable airships and about a dozen upgrades and weapons.

We plan on releasing the remaining three areas, with tons of new airships, quests, equipment, and NPCs, in the months following our Early Access release.

The game is nearly feature complete, but we do have a few new things we hope to add. We don't want to make any promises about these features, since one of the benefits of Early Access is responding to the way YOU want to play the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable with access to the first of four areas. The starting area is an archipelago of five islands of various sizes, and contains a fair amount of content to keep you busy.

There are still a few quirks we are ironing out, and I won't guarantee the game will be bug-free. It is, however, very much playable and we are making steady progress towards eliminating all of the outstanding issues.”

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

“Beyond the release discount and any other sales, we will be offering Sky Trader at the same price during and after Early Access.”

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

“Community involvement is very important to us, and we take your suggestions and comments seriously! In our experience, some of the best ideas come from an active and engaged audience. We look forward to meeting you and growing this game together!”

About This Game

This action RPG that is all about airships and the brave people that fly them. Explore, fight, and trade your way through a huge world full of islands, pirates, monsters, and more! Restore balance to a land wracked by conflict and strife… and turn a tidy profit too!

Release the mooring lines, fire up the boiler, and prepare to lift off in this high-flying game of airships, sky cities, and pirates! Sky Trader is an action RPG with elements of trade, management, and exploration.


  • Action RPG style gameplay, focusing on trade and exploration
  • Lots of unique locations to discover.
  • An immersive day/night cycle.
  • Market prices that vary depending on availability of commodities.
  • Flyable airships ranging in size from sky rafts to floating battleships.
  • Dozens of ship upgrades to find and install.
  • Defend your ship and cargo against sky pirates, monsters, and more!

The action in Sky Trader takes place in three dimensions! You have full control of the direction and altitude of your ship. Manage your fuel and crew as you explore every nook and cranny of the world. But be careful, some places are safe and others are very, very dangerous.

Find friendly settlements, then buy and sell goods to turn a tidy profit. Some towns require cargo that other towns have a surplus of. Take advantage of supply and demand, and trade your way to fame and glory!

Talk to NPCs and take on quests. Villages, towns, and cities will serve as a focal point for your adventures. Take the time to visit with the townspeople, and you may discover important information. Some may even have profitable quests for you!

Watch your enemies fall from the sky. While you will encounter many friendly airships during your travels, sky pirates will undoubtedly find you and try their hardest to defeat you. Eventually you will take the fight to them, attacking their bases and making the airways safe. Also, its best to remember that there are places in this world that even the pirates dare not tread.

Combat is a tactical playground in three dimensions. You will have to trust your crew to track targets accurately, but it is up to you to position yourself properly and fire at the perfect time. Give the command, and let loose volley after volley of lethal iron cannonballs! If the cannons aren't powerful enough, you may need to invest in a range of more esoteric steampunk weapons.

Purchase and fly new ships. Save those coins, and soon you will be able to afford a fancy new airship! With many ships to discover, you will have plenty of options from tiny flying rafts to giant battleships.
