Aloft takes everything to the skies, while players construct their own bases and sail on their floating islands, battling bad winds, and skimming the clouds with the birds.
Survival techniques are another new way to play the game, which involves collecting clear water from passing clouds in order to keep from losing water, using ziplines to go from one island to another in search of food and necessities, and even breed animals to keep the food flowing.
The floating archipelago has been infected with dangerous microbes, and you must protect your property from this infection, not only by surviving, but also by removing large, colorful mushrooms from the environment. There are specific therapies for each type of fungus, and clearing the land will benefit the environment, animals, crops, and resources.
Aloft's release date has not been established yet, but it is expected to be released in 2024. A demo version is already available on Steam.
