How do you balance a war between towns without letting either side obliterate the other? How do you rule over gods, creatures, and men who refuse to obey you? How do you build a thriving landscape of villages against the threat of bandits and mythological powers? Skyward Collapse places you into the role of The Creator, and frees you to tackle these problems your own way. Your task is to build and populate the floating continent of Luminith. You can create -- but not control -- gods, creatures, and artifacts from both Greek and Norse mythology. The power you wield with these is immense. (As one example, Heimdall's horn causes everyone standing outside to drop dead.) Your task is to keep both factions alive until The Master calls you home -- but this is harder than it sounds. Bandits, along with periodic Woes add to the variety of challenges that you'll face in any given game. Every game plays out differently, and you'll need even the craziest of your powers in order to survive.
Our Humble Bundle Weekly Sale, which kicked off last Thursday, has now surpassed 40,000 sales and $135,000 earned!
With three days* remaining in the sale (at time of writing), we're still trying to get the word out to everyone who might be interested in owning our entire catalog for a Lincoln and change.

RT @djbooba: The soundtracks to Skyward Collapse and the Nihon No Mura dlc are amazing. Great work from Pablo Vega and Ted Hardin.
