GSY Video PC

The survival genre is still very much alive and kicking, especially on PC. Forever Skies could be described as Subnautica in the sky. You evolve in a post-apocalyptic world where some toxic dust has modified our planet's ecosystem. Your first task is to get your airship running by building an engine and later a turbine to reach new heights. Your vehicle will take you from place to place but it will also serve as your lab and your home. Because it's a survival game, you will have to feed yourself, find drinkable water and avoid some of the viruses you might encounter. Your end goal is to find a cure to the disease that touches your family. There isn't much going on in terms of storytelling outside of the notes you find and the environment itself, so it's hard to know if the game will offer enough variety. Crafting is obviously very important and the different schematics you will find on your way will allow you to progress more easily, giving you some incentive to keep playing. Whether or not it will be enough to keep the players interested still remains to be seen as we haven't seen enough to know for sure. What we can say though is that, for now at least, it is a bit less engaging than Subnautica.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. From what you've described, it definitely has me intruigued, though the lack of a proper story - if the game releases as such - is unfortunate. If the lore through objects and events is like Dark Souls, then it won't matter as much.

I don't do Survival games - at all, unless the game of a major franchise I'm invested in adds survival elements to the formula, though I'm not remembering of any such case at the moment.

Either way, while outside my wheel house, your description piqued my interest and I'm going to keep an eye out on this game. Maybe I end up loving it and it gets me hard in the Survival genre, which admittedly has many interesting games.

I'm still waiting for the complete story release for The Long Dark - that's chapter 5, though it might take a few more years yet, as some people are saying 2025 or even 2026. Hopefully Forever Skies delivers and launches in 2023.
