As a lot of people have been asking us lately about the project, here are some infos about us, the game and its backstory. Feel free to start discussions here and ask us about whatever info you feel is missing

Airborn Studios

Airborn Studios is a creative collective of artists, coders and musicians working in the field of games, film production and commercials, founded in 2006 by Steffen Unger and Benjamin Sauder around the idea of creating their own game.
In subsequent years the team grew larger and developed art and gameplay prototypes around the Airborn Universe, winning several awards in the process.
In 2010 Airborn Studios got the chance to work on bigger productions as an outsource partner for major upcoming game releases. Since then their members worked on productions such as Halo 4, Crysis 3 or Homefront 2.
While the core of the team is rather small, the collective around them fluctuates in size from project to project.

Overarching Story

Eons ago, some long-forgotten disaster shattered the world into countless floating islands. Piño's Journey tells the story of a boy who was raised by his grandparents in a small and remote village in this windswept world.
As Piño grows older he wants to know more and more about the mystery of what happened to his parents. With no money in his pockets, he has only one way to leave his home and uncover the secrets of his past: he needs to become a messenger pilot, like his father once was. But first, he needs a plane.
Airbørn® - Piño's Journey is an action adventure game in which you guide Piño through his quest to find out more about his past.


Airborn - Piño’s Journey is a story-driven, single player PC action adventure game set in a unique steampunk-tinged universe. The game features action, adventure and battle gameplay, and mixes that with flight, exploration, questing and puzzles.
Airborn - Piño’s Journey consists of three principal areas: the 3rd person ground gameplay, the top down non-dungeon interior (NDI) gameplay and the 3rd person air gameplay. While the ground and NDI gameplay is inspired by the Zelda series, with item-based level progession, it also features some additions to the Zelda formula, like 3rd-person platforming. The overworld is represented by the air gameplay, with its own unique gameplay and quest features. Ships will be upgradeable over time to open up new areas and gameplay possibilities.

Hello everyone,

we just opened up a facebookpage to be a central hub for the development of Airborn.

While Moddb is a great place to hang around, we are just not working on a Mod anymore, it has grown way past the small modproject we worked on years ago.
With an art outsource studio running for more than a year now, and lots of smaller selfmade projects we just can't post all our stuff just here where it gets too little recognition - we will not forget you guys and will try to update here on a regular base, but we also wouldn't mind if you join us over at facebook :)

right now we are moving UDK, going commercial is possible, we are talking to people, but thats all i can say right now

udk demo is coming free for sure, its still pretty simple if you compare it to an actual game ;)

Been following this for a few months now, looks very nice. Reminds me or Eternal Sonata art style (tho I only played the demo) mixed with a bit of Final Fantasy.

Cant wait to try it.

you can't, we planned to port the mod for ps3 but now that udk is out we are not going to do it as we are going standalone so i doubt there will be a ps3 version soon as udk doesn't support any of the consoles.
