Cloudbuilt is an old-school action platformer where your goal is to traverse obstacles as efficiently as possible. As Demi, a recently injured war-veteran in mental rehabilitation, you will always be on the move as you progress from confused rookie to masterful speed junkie.
Explore the thoughts of Demi through challenging multi-path platform-puzzles using extreme wall runs, dashes and jumps. Avoid hostilities in your path, or shoot them out of your way as you charge and release your powerful energy beam. Be the dare devil who risks your life to cut valuable seconds, or be the calm fellow who values your lives more than beating some record.

"I actually got to play a bit of Cloudbuilt at GDC, and it is – as you might expect – exceedingly tough. It’s simply not possible to stumble through one of the game’s floating broccoli castles and survive by the skin of your teeth. Each challenge demands mastery. I mean, levels are still beatable if your whole run isn’t perfect (you get a checkpoint after each major obstacle), but don’t expect to look like the whir of speed and grace who nimbly danced through the level above.
But, in many ways, finally looking like some kind of neo-Viking marathon ballerina is the ultimate reward for learning all of a course’s curves and dimples. After I intimated a Coilworks dev with my aggressively mediocre skills, he ran through a few areas as though endowed with the eternally supple finger joints of Zeus. A few sticking points aside (yes, the game really is that hard), the difference was night and day. I was jealous. I wanted to be able to scream through the skies like that. And I think that’s exactly what Coilworks is going for."
"The coolest aspect of Cloudbuilt is the freedom you get. You can pretty much run on or climb anything, combine moves and experiment to your heart's content. When you get familiar with the abilities, you always feel in control no matter what you are doing."
