Yeah, we hear you. Adventure Mode is actually based on a lot of what we're trying to do with Skirmish. It's still heavily based on airship to airship combat so we want to get that 120% right before anything else.

Once we launch Skirmish, we'll be able to shift our focus into building that out, providing more modes of play within Skirmish (that will of course go into Adventure), and then think about how to execute our world economy.

So believe it or not, everything that you're seeing will be a part of Adventure. Rest assured though, we haven't forgotten about it :)

Is it going to be like, ap aid expansion after release or will it be released with skirmish?

It'll be a paid expansion after release.

As expansion, paid or not was not how the online version was advertised and promo'd. So if it will not be in until sometime after launch then .... well anyone such as myself who pre-ordered may have a reason not to continue waiting and helping. The skirmish / duels are fine and good for what they are but it is really just a match making forum not an online world with adventure as the first trailers etc indicated.

Sadly enough, as much as I love this game - I have to agree with you on that.

I think we've been trying to set the right expectations with Adventure Mode, but obviously not doing as good of a job as we could have been. Our plans is to keep adding content, expanding on the game, and to work towards Adventure Mode, and in fact some ground work has been started. But for us, we're a small team, and so it'll take time for us to get there.

I appreciate the communication, the honesty and the humor when called for. I also like what has been done with the game. It has a LOT of promise in so much as the genre and when it gets further down the line in development the potential for teams / friends to play together and stay togther which unless i have missed something lately is not a certainty in the present mode. But it IS good and fun for what it is so far. Keep up the good work, I will just have to be disappointed that it will not be what I thought at launch.

Ah Bubbles, I've read a few times over that adventure mode was quite a ways down the pipe after skirmish was realeased. You have set the right expectations, some people just don't visit the website or they overlook the faq's. It's all a bit vague but it's there.

I think the problem is the "online" in the title, it's a little misleading. This along with some of the original info not really separating the skirmish from adventure. Though I think at this point it might be a little too late to change the title, maybe it could have "Skirmish Mode" added to it as a subtitle or otherwise.
[Muse] Bubbles  [developer] Oct 1, 2012 @ 2:11pm 
Yeah, in the rework of the buttons, the skirmish word got dropped. We should add it back as a permanent text and a sub title.

And with the earlier info not separating skirmish and adventure clearly enough, it's true. We were honestly just revising and updating the stuff along the way, and it took us awhile to figure out how to communicate the game better.

New title : "Guns of Icarus Online, but not Online like you think, you just play it online with other people in a skirmish mode, not an MMO, yet..." lol

Though it could just be "Guns of Icarus Online Skirmish" or instead of skirmish, battles. If I didn't think changing the title completely would be so confusing I would say "Guns of Icarus Skirmish" or something without the "online" would fit the game nicely. Not sure how it would go over, changing a title that much this close to release...

That's a good point. I think the good people at Steam will finally beat me over the head with a big stick, and we might cause more confusion with people who's already used to the name. And when we have Adventure, we still want to have the 2 modes be part of the same game. So the sub title approach might be better for now.

What have I started...

The end of reality as you know it!
