CloudCanards is an action rpg about pulling off zany raids with your badass guild. Explore the world of Nebulia as you bicker with thousands of other guild members to reach the top of the Exp leaderboards. Stand up as a leader and direct your once amazing guild Twilight Marauders™ back out of its midlife crisis. Do you have what it takes to come out a nimble, badass, charismatic billower?


The idea of a wily girl who wants to soar through the clouds has been around since 2017, and now, we want to share it with the world. Think of it as a little bit of everything for everyone to enjoy.
