Sphere - Flying Cities Announced

Publisher Assemble Entertainment announces Sphere - Flying Cities, a sci-fi city building game in the works at Hexagon Sphere Games for release on Steam Early Access later this year. As seen in the Announcement Trailer, this involves creating floating cities, the long-standing dream of urban planners and architects everywhere. Here's an explanation of why:
In the not-so-distant future, Earth’s moon has been struck by a massive asteroid. With the fallout rendering the terrestrial surface uninhabitable, the ecosystem of the planet collapses. Facing complete annihilation, humanity makes one final and desperate attempt to survive — thanks to newly-created anti-gravity technology, the first (and possibly last) faction of flying cities ascends as the ultimate bastion of the human race.

As Commander, you’ve been granted an impossible task: rebuild, restructure, and protect the last of society in an uninhabitable environment. Your primary weapon and invaluable tool? An anti-gravity device you’ll use to navigate the upper atmosphere and the daunting unknown. Stay vigilant, as each decision could have ghastly consequences; be prepared to lay it all on the line to succeed, else risk losing everything you worked for.

Key Features of Sphere - Flying Cities:

  • Build It and They Will Come: Erect a living, thriving city with over 30 different building types and maintain your ecosystem via resource management mastery and infrastructure supported by independent economic cycles
  • Don’t Look Down: Ensure your anti-gravity device and its expanding deflector shield are kept in tip-top shape at all times, as an insufficient power supply will result in a quick (and painful) demise
  • Send in the Robots: Utilize drones and other scout technologies in hazardous environments to quickly construct buildings, harvest resources, and search for stranded survivors. You may even find rare materials in uncharted territories!
  • A Geologist in Space: Research new technologies to improve the efficiency of every aspect of your city and withstand a plethora of (un)natural disasters like geomagnetic storms, asteroids, and poisonous clouds
  • A Delicate Ecosystem: The well-being of your people is crucial to the success of the mission. Carefully tend to the needs of your colonists by supplying food, healthcare, and shelter. But don’t forget, the survival of many may require the deaths of the few. Sacrifices are an inevitable imperative.

*meh* Has potential, we'll see what happens. I'm pretty happy goofing around in DSP for the moment.

Yeah. It looks cool, but I'll still wait for it to be released. I've been made a fool far too many times...

This looks pretty interesting to me. I've become disenchanted with Industries of Titan and the dev's inability to address their performance issues.
