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. So special thanks to all those helping with the retweeets, facebook posts, and other methods of spreading the news -- it's massively appreciated.

There's been a nice outpouring of support from the press for the sale as well, along with some PAX previews on Bionic Dues and other new Arcen-related coverage to share:

So apparently none of our posts have been going to Facebook lately, despite being set to. Talk about accidentally neglecting a SM network.

Sep 25 2016 by arcengames

ZR doesn't tilt the balance toward the player, though: every ship described here can be used against you by the AI.

Sep 24 2016 by arcengames

Yes, even the Botnet. Have fun!

Sep 24 2016 by arcengames

Take the Polarizer: it does more damage to high armor ships. The Reprocessor makes metal as it attacks.

Sep 24 2016 by arcengames

Zenith ships tend toward armor and armor piercing, and tend toward Beam weapons. Their abilities are interesting!

Sep 24 2016 by arcengames

ZR's other Minor Factions include the Zenith Trader, Mining Golems & the Devourer Golem, & the Dyson Sphere.

Sep 24 2016 by arcengames

Factions are a major part of the expansions, but also to the base game as the Human Resistance/Marauders.

Sep 24 2016 by arcengames

Broken Golems are a Minor Faction. These are non-player, non-AI participants that make the game more interesting.

Sep 24 2016 by arcengames

Fan favorites include the army soloing Armored Golem and the zombie army making Botnet Golem.

Sep 24 2016 by arcengames

Golems are huge in every sense: hugely expensive, huge in scale and hugely powerful. They can fight armies alone.
