Above Takes Flight Over a Flooded World

Planes don’t get the showing they might deserve in video games, at least outside the military. Above is from Danish developer Mighty Moth and it features a civilian plane on a heroic journey through a flooded world. Unfortunately, there’s an ancient evil beneath the water and so this journey does start in a fishing village but also expands to sky pirates and cultists, like the setup implies. As it comes with defying gravity, Above is about struggling in a forsaken world, but of course… doing so in a plane. As for being outside the plane, which does become necessary, that’s when things get especially risky as the hazards of the drowned world threaten the pilot’s safety.

See the teaser trailer for the game below. Above is out sometime next year for PC and consoles.
