20,000 Leagues above the Clouds is a beautiful new Studio Ghibli inspired game that sees you captaining a steampunk airship across the seven skies. It features Diablo-esque point and click controls and Sid Meyers Pirates!-style battles between ships, all set in a beautiful enviroment, reminiscent of the floating islands of Avatar.
As you play the game you’ll upgrade your ship and equipment, allowing you to travel deeper into the seven skies. Your actions throughout the game will define your characters personality, allowing you to rule the skies through fear, or by turning on the charm.
The visually stunning world of 20,000 Leagues above the Clouds is inspired by Studio Ghibli (My Neighbor Totoro, Howl’s Moving Castle, Spirited Away), with an aim to create an adventure game in a similar style where you are the main character. It certainly looks like the devs are achieving this aim, with both the piratey gameplay and the steampunk sky-world looking wonderful. At 20,000 leagues above the Clouds the view is stunning, we just feel sorry for anyone who has to walk the plank!
