Have you ever wanted to climb really tall mountains like Mount Everest? Do you have a passion for enduring harsh weather conditions? Or, did you simply just enjoy watching the movie The Mountain Between Us? Then, Climber: Sky is the Limit might be your cup of tea.
No matter which group of people you fall into, you’re bound to find some enjoyment with Climber: Sky is the Limit when it embarks on its adventure later in 2021. The game is currently scheduled to be released on Steam in the first half of 2021, however, it is also planned for Nintendo Switch.
Here’s an overview of the game:
Developed by A2 Softworks, Climber: Sky is the Limit will be a mountain climbing simulator that combines survival features and the various exciting elements of a mountain expedition. The main goal is to conquer progressively higher and more difficult peaks all over the world. The list of available mountains will cover the most challenging and highest real-life mountains, including Mount Everest, Broad Peak and K2.
“For many people, the mountains are like a magnet, especially the most mysterious and inaccessible ones. In our game, we want to introduce the fascinating passion of mountain climbing by focusing on realism and accurate mapping of the elements that can affect the trek of such expeditions. While working on the game we were inspired by the literature on the topic and the consulting of expert climbers,” said Art Games Studio S.A. CEO, Jakub Bąk.
The developers highlight that this new simulator focuses on single-player gameplay, covering not only the conquest of mountains but also the whole planning process of an expedition.
Each peak will differ in difficulty and present specific challenges (e.g. avalanches, steep cliffs, etc.). The game will also include financial aspects like raising funds for each expedition and purchasing the appropriate equipment and food. Random events like unexpected weather and overcoming crevasses will also be included in the game, to add variety and additional replayability to the gameplay experience.
“Players will experience a unique combination of survival and simulation. Climbing is just one aspect of the game. The second consists of all the other elements that influence successfully reaching the summit. In Climber: Sky is the Limit you will have to take into consideration a whole range of aspects including strength recovery, proper nutrition, and body temperature. This game will appeal to both climbing enthusiasts and casual players without any climbing experience,” said Andrzej Stroiński, A2 Softworks CEO.
