Climber: Sky is the Limit will be a mountain climbing simulator that combines survival features and the various exciting elements of a mountain expedition. The main goal is to conquer progressively higher and more difficult peaks all over the world. The list of available mountains will cover the most challenging and highest real-life mountains, including Mount Everest, Broad Peak and K2.
The developers highlight that new simulator focuses on single-player gameplay, covering not only the conquest of mountains but also the whole planning process of an expedition.
Each peak will differ in difficulty and present specific challenges (e.g. avalanches, steep cliffs, etc.). The game will also include financial aspects like raising funds for each expedition and purchasing the appropriate equipment and food. Random events like unexpected weather and overcoming crevasses add variety and additional replayability to the gameplay experience. Before setting off, plan which trail is best to the top taking into account weather conditions and the weather windows. Sometimes it's better to take a chance and choose a more difficult route, but thanks to this you will be able to reach the summit before a snowstorm.
As a player, you are a climber who takes on the most difficult and dangerous peaks on earth. To succeed you need to plan your journey carefully by preparing appropriate equipment, choosing a suitable trail, facing extreme weather conditions and surviving.
The key to survival is to have appropriate tools when you need one. Each piece of equipment has its weight but also makes your next step harder. Ensure you have enough food to recover your strengths, or you have a warm jacket and sleeping bag to warm up after a full-day climb.
Good timing also plays a great role during the expedition. In the high mountains, where weather changes quickly and night falls very fast, plan ahead to set up camp in the right place that gives you wind cover making easier to survive.
Conquer your limits, overcome your fear and reach the sky.
