New survival game on Steam makes you the captain of your own airship, offers co-op and crafting

In the cooperative survival game Lost Skies on Steam you explore floating islands on your self-made airship alone or with friends and go to war against huge monsters.

What kind of game is Lost Skies? Lost Skies is a cooperative survival adventure in which you can freely explore your surroundings alone or with up to six other players. As the last survivor, you fight your way through a devastated, open world and pilot customizable airships.

You’ll explore floating islands with grappling hooks and paragliders, uncovering the mysteries of civilization’s downfall along the way.

The developer’s sandbox MMO Worlds Adrift also relied on huge airships and flying islands. The developer explains in a video why the Worlds Adrift servers were closed.

Lost Skies content will include exploring ancient technologies, braving ferocious storms, and fighting huge threats. The developers promise a big chunk of features on Steam.
