The citizens of the Empacta skies long for the days where everyone, not just the wealthy, can ditch their masks and breathe the precious air that they call their home. As an industrialist, you will collect dust particles from the air and water vapor from the clouds to convert to hydrogen and oxygen.
By collecting, converting and selling these precious resources, you can provide your family with the breathing room that you need to keep your business afloat and go home at night knowing you made a difference to the world with fresh air.
Players are industrialists in the clouds, pulling dust from the air to create stone, and condensing water vapor to use and convert to hydrogen and oxygen. By collecting and converting resources, they need to fulfill specific contracts. The player who is the most successful at fulfilling the contracts and has the most resources at the end of the game wins.
Ahead in the Clouds is a two player game designed by Daniel Newman with art by Bryan Fischer.
