Floatlands is the Low-poly Survival FPS of Your Dreams

Excalibur Games has entered a partnership with Team Floatlands to publish the studio’s flagship PC title Floatlands, a survival-exploration first-person shooter done up beautifully in a surreal low-poly aesthetic.

In Floatlands, you’ll play as a robot in a procedurally generated dreamscape, hopping between the world’s floating sky islands from the cockpit of a personal helicopter called the Buzzard. You’ll meet and chat with NPCs, complete quests, discover landmarks, explore underground caves, engage in shootouts with other robots, siege enemy fortresses, build your own bases, and partake in typical survival activities such as resource gathering, hunting, and crafting. The game will start as a single player only experience, but the plan is to eventually implement a multiplayer mode.

The sky’s the limit for Floatlands, but the ambitious game still has a long development cycle ahead of it. You can register now at floatlands.net for a chance to participate in the closed alpha testing set to begin this August. After that, the next stop on the dev’s roadmap is an Early Access launch in February 2018.

Until then, keep your head in the clouds, dreaming about all of the escapist fantasy adventures you’ll get to enjoy once Floatlands becomes a playable reality.
