Guns of Icarus

Good Gaming – Guns of Icarus Alliance Free for a limited time

For a very limited time (one day and 16 hours from now) the steampunk airship co-op game, Guns of Icarus Alliance, is free via Humble Bundle. )

Lumbering, heavily-armoured airships bristling with guns patrol the skies above a land ravaged beyond repair by an out-of-control industrial revolution. Players must take on the roles of pilots, gunners and engineers, working together as a single unit to maximize their airship’s effectiveness and own the skies. You are basically forced to work together to succeed. Rival factions battle constantly capture and keep hold of territory and control the vital resources within – every victory and defeat will sway the tides of the larger war and your gaming will influence the story of Guns of Icarus Alliance.

Take your airship and crew, and pit them against a huge variety of AI-controlled challenges, including escort missions, convoy raids, base assaults, and more. The AI won’t take defeat lying down. Dynamic learning systems mean that every battle will teach the AI what tactics you use, increasing the challenge with every fight. Starting from a selection of basic hulls, players can mix and match hundreds of custom parts to create their own unique airship.

It’s a good game for those who enjoyed games like Sea of Thieves or Cloud Pirates, and that price is certainly good too 🙂
