    Guns of Icarus

    So I bought guns of icarus a while ago, for those that don't know it's a team based first person steampunk airship death match. Each airship has a crew of four who have different jobs, i.e. captain, engineer and 2 gunners. The roles are self explanatory, captain flies the ship, engineer fixes ship, gunners shoot other ships. The store page is here and it's also on sale at the moment and is mega cheap.


    This is now a weekly event taking place on Saturdays, organised by SophiaButler. Speak to her if you wish to know more.

    Watched the TotalBuscuit video, looks like fun. I'll check the specs and join in if I can.

    Its not a very demanding game, infact a single core CPU and 8600 or better GPU is recommended.

    Ye olde airships? With cannonades? This could be hilarious!

    I opted for the multi pack, and have a spare copy if anyone needs it.

    Bonus points if you spend all evening doing an impression of a victorian British admiral or a pirate.

    Hehe, while the "pirates of the caribbean" soundtrack plays in the background. JeffJeff led a drunken squad recently, perchance will be be raising matters of the rum, its absence and whereabouts...

    I bought this a while back but never installed it. Would be cool to play with you chaps.

    Though I'll probably just fall off the airship like an idiot every game.

    Really? Wow. That's a shame.

    Presumably you can't board ships then either?

    I bought Guns of Icarus ages ago in a Steam sale and haven't played it, but I have played the very similar AirBuccaneers.

    Half the fun in that game is trying to not fall to your death in hilarious fashion during a boarding raid.

    You can but I think it just teleports you back onto the deck. Sadly no boarding.
