Cloudbase Prime started its life as a 7DFPS entry in 2012. Floating Island’s founder Tyrus Peace designed the game to be a fun first-person platformer with a jump/launch mechanic that required the player to look down. This was partially inspired by how good the platforming in “Jumping Flash!” felt, but hoped to be more actiony with mouse-look aim and terrain-moving super powers. Tyrus liked it, and other people liked it, too. So he kept working on it, intermittently. He started working on it full-time in late 2015, and released the PC edition in 2017 on Steam, Humble Store, and itch.io — where it’s currently available to purchase and play for $9.99 on Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms.
