Press Releases
  Escape to the Floatlands - Surreal Survival-Exploration Game Floatlands to be Published by Excalibur Games
  Share on Twitter RSS

[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Floatlands are rising amidst dreamlike skies. Explore each island as you hop from one to another, discovering landmarks, dark forbidding caves and fascinating native foliage. You’ll meet and speak with NPCs as you take on an army of robot adversaries.

Alongside familiar survival gameplay elements like crafting and building, Floatlands offers exciting quests, fortresses to siege from deadly enemies, and a beautiful world to explore in your very own personal helicopter - the Buzzard.

Developer Team Floatlands and publisher Excalibur Games are today announcing a partnership to release Floatlands on PC. The game is intended to be pure escapism – a stunning, procedurally generated dreamscape that players can lose themselves in.

Crisp low-poly visuals, along with an epic, atmospheric original score, make the game a unique experience that’s about more than just survival. Take a look for yourself in our brand new trailer, and discover that Floatlands drives the player to explore, build and engage in deadly fire-fights.

While Floatlands won’t be releasing in the immediate future, players and press members attending EGX Rezzed will be able to get their hands on the game at the show! This will be one of the very first occasions that Floatlands has been playable in the world. Both Team Floatlands and Excalibur Games will be on-hand to speak with press about Floatlands.

For those not attending the show, or simply wanting more of Floatlands, players and press alike can sign up, for a chance to play the Floatlands Alpha in late Summer.

About Team Floatlands

Team Floatlands were founded in 2014, when the then small team started work on mobile games. By the time Team Floatlands released the mobile game Ore Miner, the team expanded to incorporate six members. Having concluded that the mobile games market had become oversaturated, the team sought opportunities in developing for PC.

The concept of Floatlands’ signature environments, along with every team-member's unique contribution to the project have established a pleasant working environment. 2017 looks to be a turning point for the developer, from the growing Floatlands fanbase, to their latest and proudest announcement of cooperation from Excalibur Publishing.
