Skystone Games and indie game developer Glasscannon Studio have announced a September release date for their relaxing strategy game Land Above Sea Below.
Escape to an immersive and tranquil world. Crafted with meticulous care, the game world is designed to evoke the gentle embrace of an autumn breeze. The goal in this world of wonder is to work towards an “Eternal Autumn” by planning ahead.
Set against a backdrop of picturesque landscapes, the game blurs the line between dreams and reality. Forming a harmonious tapestry, the world encapsulates the essence of a fall afternoon with the of warm orange, red, and gold hues. The unique art style aims to capture the intricate beauty of nature.
It’s been a labor of love to create a game that resonates with players on a deep and emotional level. We wanted to capture the feeling of a peaceful fall day, where time slows down and nature embraces you with its beauty. We hope players find solace, inspiration, and a touch of magic within our game.Peter Takacs of Glasscannon Studio

Raise the land as much as possible to avoid the constantly rising sea level. Place similar tiles that interact with each other and be rewarded in a height increase and earn valuable points. Unlock different rewards by achieving certain point scores. With infinitely procedurally generated tiles available, the only limit is one’s own imagination.
