Blindflug Studios’ challenging rogue-like Cloud Chasers has launched on iOS and Android today. Check out the launch trailer below:
I don’t normally go crazy about mobile games, but this Cloud Chasers has a certain charm that caught my eye. Don’t be fooled though; the game features a very desperate situation for its characters
“The game’s main characters, Francisco and his daughter Amelia have to flee their home because a lack of water has completely dried out their lands and robbed them of their livelihoods. Meanwhile a privileged few are living on artificial floating islands in the sky. Water is the main resource in the game, players can harvest it, by guiding Amelia through the clouds on her glider – becoming Cloud Chasers. But the clouds are a dangerous place, and Amelia has to compete with the elite’s powerful machines and drones. Francisco and Amelia have to make their way through five deserts – each becoming longer and tougher to pass than the last one – to reach the spire to the promised land.”
The game features a high difficult level and random level generation. There’s no saving and each decision is final – you’ll have to be very careful if you want to find success in Cloud Chasers.
The game is inspired by the desperate journeys of migrants – something developers Blindflug Studios clearly care deeply about as they’ve promised to donate a part of all revenue to aid organisation MOAS – “Migrant Offshore Aid Station” (www.moas.eu).
Cloud Chasers is available right now on the App Store and on the Google Play Store for the low price of £2.50 – give it a look.
