The Skies, a unique combination of post-apocalyptic MMORPG and FPS with a non-linear storyline, just launched on Steam Early Access on April 16.

In this innovative sandbox you create your own adventure in a player driven economy your actions will result in the development of both the world and your character. The game story takes place in the early 21st century, when solar activity increased dramatically. Within two weeks civilization collapsed, wiping out power sources, government and infrastructure. Humanity descended into darkness. In 2150-2170, dust began to settle on the surface of the planet and the sunrays reappeared after 150 years of darkness.

Is mankind strong enough to restore what they've destructed over the last century? What life is going to be like now?

Why Early Access?

“Our aim is to create an awesome game, and we need you as a player/expert to provide us with your thoughts and ideas. The Skies is currently in early alpha and we invite you to come and test the game so that we can continue our development together until we deliver an amazing product. The main features are already implemented, and we’re looking for your feedback to improve and polish the experience. We hope that Early Access will give us a better understanding of what you are looking for in our game, and how we can provide this to you. If you like our start and progress, we'll really appreciate your support, because as any developers we need the opportunities for going ahead and creating more and more of great content. :)
The Skies is a unique project in that it combines multiple game genres. It’s not a traditional MMORPG, but a combination of the FPS and RPG genre set in a multiplayer world with a player driven economy.
Due to the complexity and innovative nature of the game we decided that Early Access would be the best approach for us, as development without community involvement could lead to long and unproductive development times. We hope that this approach will help us to create an immersive and enjoyable universe.
So, Early Access is a great opportunity for us to involve the community and create a great game together. We want to create a fantastic first impression of our game and we promise that we will do everything possible to impress you and keep the game development moving in the right direction.”

Nah, it is not. First, it is an indie game. Second, it barely went into an early access phase and has been released only for a couple of days. You can give the game a chance at least. A few months later perhaps.
