It's time to merge this game into Chivalry.
You know you want it. The one thing missing from Chivalry is balloons. The one thing missing from AirBuccaneers is intuitive controls, fun combat, an audience, and active development. Okay, two or three. In any case, the rights to this game are worth at least $500 so we've got our work cut out for us, but if we put out heads together we can probably come up with a plan. What do you say?

Hmm, more boarding is what many people seem to want, and while I personally am more in for the crew teamwork aspect, I can understand that. In fact when they still was a forum, there was threads about melee there and I suggested there that a stripped down Chivalry fighting system would be a pretty fine thing in this game.

I have fantasized about ABu/Chivalry hybrid as well, but got to remember that they are on different engines. Chivalry is on Unreal engine and ABu on Unity. The mod was on Unreal, but that's 10 years old. Guns of Icarus Online is on Unity, though. Maybe we should dream about Muse bying the rights instead. They are a small studio and probably busy with their adventure mode, though.

The game isn't for sale, they still get a trickle of income from the steam sales so they're not likely to give it up. It would be much more likely to dev a new game with original IP and better dynamics.

I'd be up for more boarding, but even fixing the existing gameplay would be amazing. If anyone's seriously interested in trying to put together a f2p zeppelin game I'd be interested.

Yeah, wouldn't really have to be zeppelins or balloons either. I'd love to see something in the vein of John Carter of Mars (the books, not so much the movie) or Frank Chadwick's boardgame Sky Galleons of Mars. Ships that float in the air by some esoteric antigravity superscience, but they still use swords and have boarding battles and such. Could be magic too... Sky Elves.

Or creatures of some kind :) Giant crewed dragons would be pretty fun, or maybe some kind of sky-whales.
