Guns Of Icarus Takes To The Clouds

By Jim Rossignol on May 18th, 2012.


No, not The Cloud as in the internet, but actual clouds. Actual imaginary game clouds. Although it’s also an online game, so I suppose both interpretations are true. Guns Of Icarus is a massively multiplayer game of airships, you see, and the footage below is straight from Muse Games’ beta testing moments, complete with the player voice-comms captured for illustrative hooting. In it the airships batter each other with big steampunky guns, and watching them come crashing out of the sky is a joyous thing.

Cannon Canon: Guns Of Icarus

By Jim Rossignol on December 9th, 2009.


Veterans of our adventures in Air Buccaneers will understand why I was excited to discover airship-defence game Guns Of Icarus, which is web-based 3D combat thingy with both multiplayer and single player campaign aspects. The basic “lite” version allows you to play through a limited version of the game, which gives you a taste of the aeronautical antics. I’ve not braved the multiplayer as yet, but I’m a little disappointed by how far away the sky-pirates remain from your aerial cargo-ship. Running around manning the guns is fun, and the tech-tree progression gives you something to aim for, but a genuine successor to Air Buccaneers, I suspect, remains the stuff of optimistic dreams.
