Celebrating "Cloud Chasers" release on Steam - First Strike Final Hour is 50% off!

Looking for an action-adventure with an epic story and unique gameplay? Search no more! We are proud to present to you our critically acclaimed game "Cloud Chasers" - now available for Windows and Mac.

Meet Francisco and his daughter Amelia, who need to leave their farm. Since all the water from the clouds is collected by harvesters from the world above, the fertile land turned into a desert.

>>> Get "Cloud Chasers - Journey of Hope" on Steam <<<

Begin the dangerous journey through five deserts and experience multiple narrative encounters. Make the right decisions, trade items and try to make it to the Spire - a city above the clouds.

On the desert, water is your most valuable resource - collect it flying through the clouds with your glider. Be careful though - harvesters from the world above don't like competition and they will try to stop you.

We hope you will find the story of Amelia and Francisco interesting. Thanks for playing our games!

About This Game

Welcome commander, you are now in power of one of the biggest nuclear superpowers of the world. So choose your steps carefully, it’s a small path between war and peace.

First Strike is a fast paced real time strategy game which makes dropping the big one as easy as ABC. But be sure to take the right measures to guarantee your people’s safety.

Pick one of the big nuclear players – from known superpowers like the USA to an upstart hellraiser like North Korea – and plan your strategy wisely: Expand to other countries, build bombs or debuild in order to restructure your arsenal. Or use research to gain access to new nuclear technology, better recon intel, automated self-defense-sequences and many more.

Whether you’re a bloodthirsty warmonger or a tree-hugging hippie – it’s time to put your cards on the table. First Strike shows you how little it takes to heat things up. You control the destiny of the precious and vulnerable rock floating through space, the rock we call mothership Earth.

 So, will you be the one remaining when the whole world blows to smithereens?
