About the Game

Welcome to the ancient North that, once the cradle of culture and peace, is now corrupted by magic and inhabited by nasty bandits sowing destruction in airships.

The Buccaneers blame the Vikings who, according to old sagas, once let the magic escape from their hands. The hatred just keeps adding up, leading the antiheros to even fiercer battles.

Fight over the questionable honor of your tribe in airships loaded with cannons, rockets and gunpowder. The success, as well as the bitter defeat, is solely dependent on how well you co-operate with your crew mates. Maybe one day you will conquer the ancient North and find wonderful Atland, the city of scholars, that was once destroyed by no one but your own tribe.

Finding the right kind of battle strategy is not self-evident in the merciless winds and twisted magic of the North...


Highlights

* Heavy emphasis on teamwork. Solo players, time to team up!
* Intense air battles. Airship armadas fighting against each other in berserk frenzy.
* Mythical story. This is what really happened in the darkness of the past.
* Character development. Start as a lousy low-life and turn into a crazy shaman warlord.
* Powered by Unity 4. Game developed by an independent game studio from northern Finland.

Yes, Flight of Icarus and Guns of Icarus Online are probably inspired by this game, or rather the UT2k4 mod this was based on, but they actually finished their game so I can't be too mad at them. Still not as fun as AirBuccaneers, tho.

How developers now a days are able too copy other developers idea's and call it their own work then try to make money off it is beyond me. I'm surprised there is no legal laws yet for this kind of thing. If I copied someone elses artwork and called it something else I would be sued. A true artist doesn't need to copy idea's or other peoples work. A real artist comes up with his own. It's called creativity. Something lacking in our current industry now a days it seems.
