Hey DragonButter, we appreciate that, thank you.

Arque Skies - CLOUD WARS

IMPORTANT, I want to say to the developer thank you. I appreciate it so much that you allow me to play your game. It was so much fun and it blew my mind and set me at ease into a good mood. On a further thought, I did encounter some frame issues that are present in lets play as well as a few audio issues. I feel these are possibly on my end and will hopefully be putting up a better video up once I figure those out. The frame issues dip way low when I entered buildings and then continued once I was outside the building, after several minutes they would even out and the frame was perfect. Like I said, this may be on my end, but it didn't stop me from falling in love with this creation. It's upgrading and story driven utopia with in the clouds really sent me into heaven. Thank you so much and my sincere appreciation. ~ Vilarchim
