Air Buccaneers Sale & The Last Saga of Atland

It seems pretty clear to me that "ludicrous hot air balloon battles with flame-cannons and grappling-hook boarding actions" needs no exposition or back-story, but Air Buccaneers has a rather amusing one anyway. Finnish developers Ludocraft send word that their story trailer (and presumably new game intro) has appeared, and you can watch that below. It's time to coincide with a Christmas sale over the Steams,…

Morning: Gorgeous Air Buccaneers HD Footage

We do like a bit of balloon war, and few games do that as proficiently as the awesome Air Buccaneers HD.

Mysteriously, devs Ludocraft promise something special for next week, but won't say…

“Summon the Old God, Väinämöinen, to the battlefield.”

So. You might recall that I asked what the hell was going on in the last Air Buccaneers HD trailer.

The player can summon the Old God, Väinämöinen, to the battlefield. Once summoned Väinämöinen ascends onto the battlefield and…

Air Buccaneers HD Mystery, Classic Server Up

We've received a mysterious link from Ludocraft, who are currently making a "HD" version of one of RPS' favourite mods, the bizarre airship combat game, Air Buccaneers. It's a link to this image, which is inscribed with words - possibly Finnish?

FAMED VICTORIES OF THE SKY!

Air Buccaneers is getting an HD remake! You can even watch a trailer, below.

And it is being remade. RPS veterans we recall our revival of the mod on a couple of occasions, events which always ended…
