Assemble Entertainment has announced the release date for Hexagon Sphere Games’ upcoming post-apocalyptic city-builder Sphere – Flying Cities. In the game, you’ll have to help the last of humanity as they try to build and survive on the first flying city. The game takes inspiration from James Blish’s novel City in Flight and combines a city-builder with strategy and survival for an exciting game. You’ll be the commander who must help maintain order after a colossal asteroid has collided with the moon causing catastrophic events on Earth putting humanity in grave peril.
Unlike your typical post-apocalyptic city-builder, Sphere – Flying Cities introduces a unique plot twist: humanity’s last bastion isn’t on the decimated surface of Earth but in the skies! Utilizing novel anti-gravity technology, players manage the well-being of humanity’s last inhabitants in their very first flying city.
Soar through the sky as the denizens of the arial city rebuild, restructure, and protect the last semblance of society. Additionally, the full release of this sky-faring sci-fi title will see new features such as a fully fleshed-out story campaign, six new building blueprints to discover, a completely revamped tutorial, and a terrifying new threat — ice storms.
You can try your hand at saving humanity on September 20 or grab the Early Access version of Sphere before then to start learning the ropes. In addition, Assemble Entertainment has teamed up with Atmosfair to offer the Save the World edition of the game which includes a mini-artbook and in-game cosmetics. A portion of the profits from the Save the World edition will be directly given to Atmosfair which focuses on “clean energy climate protection projects.” You can purchase the game on GOG and Steam now.
