Guns of Icarus Alliance takes to the skies with co-op

Avast, ye unsightly cads! Cast ye grog-smashed memory back to The Year of Emperor Cameron 2012, when Guns of Icarus Online took to the clouds with steampunk multiplayer airship combat.

Sky Nations Takes Minecraft For A Balloon Ride

Minecraft has the ground covered, and Starmade does the whole "Minecraft in space" thing that was inevitable. But what about that bit in between? Where the ground isn't quite the ground, but it's definitely not space because there are no tweeting astronauts? That part of the world needs a game, if only to bridge the gap.

Guns Of Icarus Takes To The Clouds

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.

Muse Games Explain Guns Of Icarus Online

One of the more esoteric projects on the horizon is an MMO by Muse games called Guns Of Icarus Online. It's an MMO about Steampunk airship combat in a ruined world. Yes, that's a popular theme around these parts so I thought I'd have a chat with Muse about what they were up to. Howard Tsao answered my questions.

Light As Feather: Guns Of Icarus Online

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…

Airship Apocalypse: Guns Of Icarus Online

Remember dieselpunky web-based airship defence game Guns Of Icarus? Well it turns out there was more to that project that we might have imagined. Developers Muse Games have announced that they are developing an MMO based on the idea, with players able to enter a post-apocalyptic world in which airship combat is the norm, and where sky-bandits threaten to plunge you into the barren world…
