Project Sky, the impressive third person action RPG currently being developed by Seth DeGrâce, will get a free demo on May 30th. The developer shared some new gameplay today, as well as a thread about the demo, which will go up on their Discord server (follow their Twitter account so you can get an invite on the 29th)
Though you wouldn’t guess it in a million years, Project Sky is a solo project from Seth DeGrâce, who’s creating this incredible world in Unity.
Project Sky is a Third-Person Action/Exploration RPG that draws inspiration from titles such as Horizon Zero Dawn, Breath of the Wild, Kenshi, and Shadow of the Colossus. It features a vast open-world filled with a variety of vibrant cultures, frightening machines, and unique regions that will all challenge you to learn their rules of survival.
This is a game set in a vast science-fantasy world of old technology, and untamed wilderness. Partnering with an unlikely companion from one of the non-human tribes, players will travel to the far corners of the Skylands, seeking to unite all tribes under a single banner so that they may stand a fighting chance as they wage war against a technologically superior force.
You will have a variety of tools and strategies at your disposal for every encounter. Against humanoid opponents, you may lay traps and wait for them to weaken themselves before you strike – or you can charge into battle, taking care to cripple their legs to ensure there is no escape. Against colossal machines, you might challenge them on the back of your faithful hawkwolf, dodging missiles and gunfire while returning explosives of your own – or, you could use your grappling hook to scale them and deal damage directly. There is no single correct answer to any problem, and the only limit is your own creativity.
In Project Sky, you will learn to survive in a world both beautiful and deadly as you develop a bond with your travel companion. You will explore ancient ruins, and hunt the metal creations left behind by the false gods that vanished long ago. You will hand-craft and fine tune your equipment, uncover and harness advanced technology from another age and ultimately ensure that the mistakes of the past are not mis-used to shape the future.
