Airships: Conquer the Skies steampunk building strategy launches on Linux, Mac and Windows. Where players construct steampunk vehicles and use them to conquer the world. Competing against other players.

Airships: Conquer the Skies comes with a side-on “ant farm” view. While air sailors running around, manning the guns, carrying ammo, putting out fires. It’s quite impressive to watch the internal operation of the ship.

Now, since air combat is a visceral thing: ships can ram and push against each other. While boarding parties use grappling hooks to invade enemy ships. Below, giant landships move on legs and tracks.
Of course nature has its own terrors: sky krakens with tentacles that grab and devour crew. So yes, these are house-sized spiders and horse-sized spiderlings, dragons to fear and tame.

That being said, gameplay has players constructing your own vehicles. Piecing together a vast array of modules, choosing weapons, armour types, structures, equipment and resources. Which is also a near endless choice of configurations. Allowing you to prevail against even the toughest foes. This explains why the reviews on Steam are a solid 91% Positive.

So naturally the vehicles in game can have a lot detail. Full of sailors moving around performing their individual tasks to stay in the fight. But your choices of vehicle layouts are crucial. So players will have to explore the design space of different crafts and their matching tactics. Making sure your fleet emerges victorious.

Once your vehicles are ready for the fight, you’ll give high-level commands to your small fleet, swooping, soaring, ramming and boarding others to gain the upper hand in battle. Ships and terrain are fully destructible: they can catch fire, explode, break apart, and fall, so you’ll need to choose your tactics wisely.
