Zürich, Switzerland – November 24, 2016 – Blindflug Studios, the Swiss independent developer today announced that AIRHEART – Tales of Broken Wings Update II, entitled ‘Fishing for Giants’ is now available to play on Steam. Full details can be found by following this link:
There are plenty of new features for players to get stuck into, which are listed below. For a fuller explanation of everything that’s included in ‘Fishing for Giants’ check out the latest Livestream link: https://youtu.be/d_VsMO27lIo
- Relative steering
One of the big requests for keyboard users was being able to steer the airplane left and right. Player can now switch from direct to relative controls in the options menu.
- First Whale: Minke
There has been a rare sighting above Granaria! A Minke whale is roaming the space above the city. Fishermen’s dreams have awakened. Who will be the one to defeat the giant and bring it back down?
It’s finally here! The most sophisticated hunting machinery for the modern skyfish fisherman.
Anything you shoot at the harpoon will stick to and you will be able to reel-in all those fantastic prizes.
- New fish: Dodolphin
A friendly and highly-valuable large fish inhabiting the higher skylayers. Some say it isn’t even a fish, but who knows.
- New fish: Lionfish
Feisty territorial competitors of the higher regions. Many fishermen who thought of fish as easy prey have met their end in a swarm of angry Lionfish. They fetch a great price, though.
- New fish: Cratefish
Fish, which looks like a health pack.
Sometimes nature saves creatures from predators by giving them the ability to blend in wonderfully into their environment. A very clever and majestic trick.
This is certainly not the case for the cratefish though.
- Return animation
Instead of Amelia just vanishing when returning and crashing, you can now see her getting back down. Does this help you in any way? Not really… but at least it should make it more clear why you lose your airplane.
- Life ring loss
The life rings of enemies and Amelia show now more accurately when life is lost.
Red segments will fly out every time damage is received.
- Weapon cooldown visualization
You can now check the cooldown of each weapon in a small reticule around the target cursor.
Unsure when you can use that Skysweeper again? This should help you to perfect that rhythm.
The Fishing For Giants content update also brings with it new randomization, new values, new balancing. The universe has changed, so game progress has been wiped. Everything player owned is gone.
AIRHEART is a dieselpunk action game about a young woman, who flies her aeroplane and catches skyfish among beautiful sky islands. Amelia’s biggest dream is to reach the stratosphere and to bring down the legendary Skywhale, which promises riches and fame for a lifetime.
AIRHEART allows players to advance ever upwards, whilst building-up their aeroplane in the workshop before heading once more into the stratosphere to take on powerful bosses. Featuring sumptuous graphics and memorable music, the game encompasses a dynamic gameplay model and fascinating core messaging in which Blindflug Studios touch upon real-world problems such as social inequality and overfishing.
