Project Nomads is a cross genre game that mixes gameplay elements of 3D action, real-time strategy and role-playing. Huge, floating islands drift slowly through the haze of the clouds. Amidst these rocky giants, the player controls a flying Wizard Engineer. With his arcane powers and glittering, magical artefacts, he can build clusters of factories, power plants and defence facilities on these massive platforms.
Armies of flying machines, biplanes and zeppelins produced by the factories are controlled to gain the upper hand in the battle for rare resources and valuable artefacts. The floating platform is used like a battleship to explore the unknown realms in the clouds.
