In this strategic, tactical, turn-based RPG, players captain a flying pirate ship and explore floating islands for loot. The game emphasizes turn-based tactical combat on compact battlefields, where every move is crucial, more like a puzzle.

The adventure is enriched with a customizable ship and crew, skill upgrades, and a sandbox world ripe for exploration.

Dead Weight is set for a Q4 2024 release, but in the meantime, you can try the demo. Below is an overview of the game via Steam and some screens.
