I imply, who would belief Sin, truthfully? I select to half belief her. In our HighFleet review, she wrote that there was an excellent sport buried beneath its frustrations, and as RPS’s chunky button hype man, I am selecting to imagine the “sensible” bit solely.
Anyway, HighFleet is out at the moment. Decide a facet.
If you do not know it, HighFleet is an action-strategy sport. With a little bit of roguelike and a little bit of RPG thrown in. Oh, let’s be particular: it is an aerial dogfighting sport wherein you pilot hulking airships, direct their actions through radar, land them at metropolis states, and negotiate with the factions you meet there. Oh, and handle their loadouts and repairs. Oh, and it is all offered through a sequence of diegetic interfaces, lined in buttons and switches and seemingly historical Soviet-era computer systems.
To cease being facetious for a second, I imagine all elements of Sin’s evaluate. HighFleet could be very clearly not a sport constructed to be accommodating. It seems like an expertise to be endured, for the moments when its methods coalesce and produce a tense battle or an excellent anecdote, or for the sheer pleasure of its environment. I’m keen to simply accept this.
You might really feel likewise, wherein case HighFleet is accessible from Steam now. It’s going to value £21.41/€22.50. And who is aware of, possibly there can be patches and choices and quality-of-life updates that can make it extra accessible to these much less masochistic gamers.
