Merchant of the Skies is a trading game with light base-building and tycoon elements. You start off as a captain of a small cloudship and work your way towards establishing your own trade company. Merchant of the Skies is an experimental game: it does not have a distinct genre, but tries to capture the feeling of travelling the world and establishing your own company. That means we try to incorporate exploration, base building, trading and some minor rpg elements into the game. FEATURES: - Become a trader! Find the best trade routes and profit from them - Discover the world! Travel between flying isles and face different encounters - Sandbox gameplay: do what you want at your own pace - Gain experience and become more savvy when it comes to trading, then start your own goods production - Establish trade routes to transport and sell goods without your direct involvement - Get rich and build your own mansion from more than 200 different building blocks Merchant of the Skies offers you a 6-8 hours campaign where you can help different characters and restore the world to its former glory, as well as a sandbox mode where you can forget about the plot and focus on building your own company, establishing caravan routes and developing your mansion.

Merchant of the Skies Critic Reviews


7 / 10.0

Merchant of the Skies is just disappointingly flat. It's enjoyable enough to play through — once. However, after you've accumulated your wealth, there's little left to be done. Another layer of challenge would have done the game a world of good, but as it stands, it's just a one-way trip.

Merchant of the Skies has some rough edges, but the overall experience is an engrossing one, scratching a variety of gaming itches at once since it fuses resource management together with tycoon elements and base building. The controls and presentation are a tad clumsy on Switch, but the sense of discovery in this off-kilter world is fun. I enjoyed spending time in this world.

Merchant of the Skies is a neat trading simulation game, with relaxing game play. Though I don’t think the game allows for much of a replay after you have finished the campaign mode. There is a sandbox mode to play around with, but once I’d played and completed the campaign mode I’d basically completed everything the game has to offer. There isn’t anything particularly new in the game, however, the gameplay that Merchant of the Skies offers is engrossing and an enjoyable experience all the same.
