Light As Feather: Guns Of Icarus Online

By Jim Rossignol on November 22nd, 2011 at 10:24 am.

Airships: like weaponised clouds.
Dirigible fans might recall browser game Guns Of Icarus, in which you manned an airship as it took on aerial foes, and they might also be aware that the game is now being rebooted as a full-blown MMO, Guns Of Icarus Online. They’re likely to be unaware, however, that the first in-game footage of the reboot has been released. Until now: here it is.

Looking pretty atmospheric! Ahaha. Do you see what I did there? Between this and the Air Buccaneers remake it’s looking like 2012 will be quite the year for lighter-than-air combat.

      I just made a squeaking noise I have never made before, I believe it is the sound of pure joy escaping from my body.

      Not much info yet, but if it is half as good as the original and people play it then my life will be complete.

    Really like the concept. If they pull it off correctly, it could certainly be one to watch.

    This is… potentially, incredible.

      Wait what? How can something be/have too much steampunk?

    “Weaponised Clouds” should totally be a tag, alongside “Angry Houses”.

    In my head I live in a steampunk wonderland like this.

    00:18, Waterworld reference?

    Trust me, it isn’t – It actually gets quite frantic, at times, with people running all over your ship trying to keep things in repair, while running back and forth between the guns to try and defend the ship. It’s great fun!

    This color tinting post-processing effect fad is going too far. It looks ugly as sin in that picture.

    I never understood the awful ratings for Project Nomads. Was a keul game…
