If there’s one thing I’ve played a lot of recently, it’s Minecraft. That’s mainly because my son constantly wants me to partner up with him for a couple hours of multiplayer. There was a point early on when I had no idea what the appeal of Minecraft was, but now I do and I find it quite enjoyable. With that said, crafting games have become quite appealing to me, even if they are 2D, which is what Airship Q seems to be. Airship Q is a Japanese sandbox Action-RPG game featuring construction, destruction, and crafting.
If you check out the trailer below, you can see where the Minecraft influence is as well as a bit of Terraria. What’s neat about this game is that you travel around in an airship of your own unique design.
Airship Q is scheduled to be released for both the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita sometime later in 2015.
Shinjuku, Tokyo : Having received additional financial aid from Cygames Inc., Miracle Positive Co. Ltd. has today announced the development and forthcoming release of Airship Q, a sandbox Action-RPG game coming soon to PlayStation®4.

In Airship Q players go on an adventure in the open sky with your original airship. The witch has transformed you into cat, and kidnapped your brother Lemuel. Now, you have to search her in order to get back to yourself. You will explore mysterious islands, collect materials, craft tools, and fight against monsters! Find statues on the way to increase your crafting levels. You can create your airship as you like, equipping with weapons to get ready for battles. Plants grow on the wet soil, water flows with gravity, and rocks are formed by the cooling of lava. The game makes use of the laws of physics and you are challenged to use your creativity. Multi-Player mode supports up to 4 players.
