Few things fill me with as such intense delight as light-than-air combat, and Air Buccaneers is the leading balloon in that race. The delicious remake continues apace, with a new version of the "playable Alpha" available to download, and a chance for free-account folks to win additional premium accounts for themselves in a new challenge. Ludocraft explain: "Today we’ll launch a new, unique 10,000 XP Challenge campaign. During this campaign, players with free accounts can redeem themselves a free Alpha activation key for AirBuccaneers if they manage to gather 10,000 experience points in two weeks. Time starts to run when player logs in to the new 0.45 version for the first time after today. This campaign is valid through April 2012." Premium accounts secure a copy of the finished game, and get some extra in-game items such as shields and er... birds? Yes.
