Build and manage a floating continent while everything fights against you. Seems like a good weekend.

God games often be rather similar: build a little city, tell the residents what to do, and view them do it. Not in this game, though.

Skyward Collapse is a fantastic mashup of a 4X strategy game (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate) with a god-game (Spore, Black and White, Civilization). Your job is to create and occupy a floating continent called Liminith. You get to develop gods, creatures, and artifacts from Norse and Greek misconception, and keep them from killing each various other off till you are summoned home by The Master. This will certainly be more difficult than it appears.

There will be bandits with their keeps turning up from time to time, natural catastrophes like floods, serial killers, and vegetarian uprisings, and … wait, what? Perhaps you need to try something a little safer, like taming a tiger or something.

Skyward Collapse is a turn-based, strategic game in which you manage none of the warring factions, but battle to use god-like powers to preserve a healthy populace and the balance of power. You’ll need to gather resources, develop towns, and persuade all the little people to do what you desire my manipulating the environment around their unfortunate, little lives. You’ll use underling gods as well-up to 16 of them-to manage things while you function, particularly when you begin dealing with the Age of Monsters.

There are numerous problem levels, thank You, and a co-op multiplayer mode for approximately 8 players. Slick!

Honestly, for 5 bucks, you can’t fail right here. Simply head on over to Steam and grab yourself a copy of the game, which is actually on sale for $4.49 since this writing. You just might discover a gem of a game that keeps you busy into the wee hours of your long weekend, keeping your continent safe and your warring factions alive and, well, warring.
