How do you balance -- and indeed encourage -- a war between factions without letting either side obliterate the other? How do you rule over gods, creatures, and men who refuse to obey you? How do you build a landscape of villages when bandits and mythology are conspiring to tear it down? Skyward Collapse places you into the role of The Creator, and frees you to tackle these problems your own way. Brought to you by the developer of the modern strategy classic AI War: Fleet Command, Arcen's second full strategy title is equally unique (but far easier to learn): a turn-based 4x strategic god-game.

Your task is to build and populate the floating continent of Luminith. You create -- but cannot control -- gods, creatures, and artifacts from both Greek and Norse mythology. The power you wield with these is immense: Heimdall's horn causes everyone outdoors to drop dead, for crying out loud. Your task is to keep both factions alive and fighting until The Master calls you home -- but this is harder than it sounds. Bandit Keeps pop up periodically, as do Woes such as floods, serial killers, guild strikes, and vegetarian uprisings. Every game plays out differently, and you'll need even the craziest of your powers in order to survive what lies in store for you.


Key Features:

  • A turn-based strategic god-game where you control neither faction, but instead strive to maintain the balance of power.

  • Make towns and war as the boardgame-like floating continent continues to construct itself around you.

  • Persuade your minions into doing what you want by controlling the circumstances of their (brief) lives.

  • 16 gods, each with unique passive abilities and three active powers, help you further your goals as you pass into the Age of Monsters.

  • Level up your player profile by winning games. Twelve unlockable buildings in all!

  • Straightforward controls paired with an intuitive and helpful interface make this an easy title to pick up... but the strategy runs deep.

  • Multiple difficulty levels let you play a very relaxed game up to a nail-bitingly difficult one. There's no one best way to win!

  • Co-op multiplayer for up to 8 players.

Playing a strategy as a god.

Normally in these strategy games it's you vs a AI or maybe 2 vs 2. But this is different this time. You're a god. In this game you have to create two empires, those empires have to destroy each other, it maybe sounds weird but it's hard to explain. The graphics are a little bad, could be better. The sound is really good it fits the strategy theme. In the main menu you've a melody and someone singing. The game is cheap, worth full price.

True god game

This game is really unique. Under nice, but 2D graphics with almost non existent animations hides a great, challenging turn based strategy. As higher being you take care of two nations at once and must help them to survive. But at the same time you must encourage them to wage wars against each other, as the level of slaughter and destruction determines how much points you get. And you must meet a certain score to win, so it is all about causing chaos on the map and managing it. Neat, especially that no unit at the map can be directly controlled - even the ones summoned by yourself. You will spend hours playing this game, for five bucks it is almost like for free. And you can be sure developers will support this game for long time.

Challenging and Rewarding!

Skyward Collapse is unique game where you are against yourself. Even this concept is not fresh idea game does it in new way. Game never give full control to player and you are more like a mapmaker when two AI try to annihilate each other. when you build towns and map and create mythological creatures and gods you have fun time watching a result, but lack of variety that is not so much. I must recognize Music and graphics that Skyward Collapse has offer. Example main menu theme is peaceful melody with skillful solo singing. Graphics are typical in the bird's eye viewed games and doesn't make anything big and stay in simple things. Even so there is many nice details in sprites and eyes can rest peaceful when you play. Summa summarum Skyward Collapse is nice game with potential to be something bigger but result is average game. There is nothing bad in this game but after all Skyward Collapse has offer too little from promises

Fun Game.

Good: - Lots of depth in trying to balance the two sides while fighting off Woes (think natural disasters in Sim City), bandits, and yourself. - The way the two sides are intentionally unbalanced is brilliant and adds a lot of strategy in planning your towns, miracles and moves. - I actually found myself attached to Blue due to their early underdog status and for the entirety of the game I coddled them while destroying Red while still playing as Red. It was a strange but awesome feeling. - Great music by Pablo - Lots of difficulty options and many variables - Low Price - Great tutorial for an Arcen game Cons: - It will never be as good as AI War.
