    Hi all,

    I have been looking at this for a while but I haven't tried it yet, mainly because I have no-one to play with and this is not the kind of game that is fun to play with randoms.

    So this is my suggestion: A Bit-Tech battle royal (inspired by the TGS event). Everyone who is interested gets put into a hat and put into a random team. They get a week to practice and work on their flying skills and then we fight it out for the title of King of the Skypirates!

    Guns of Icarus is currently on sale on Steam for £7.50 till on 22/05/13 which means that this is the perfect time to do this. So, anyone interested?

    The first three people to reply here with >500 posts will get a free copy of the game from me. I will reserve one of those for Voluntary_Pariah in case he hasn't got one!

    It does look like a fun game, and if I can get my hands on a copy, I'm up for that

    This sounds interesting, count me in (assuming we actually get enough players to assemble a couple of teams)

    I am guessing that we are only going to get the four (me, Kiythan, Jedra and rollo) involved. So do you guys want to suggest a starting date for our airborne adventures?

    RIGHT, sorry about the long silence but I was in exam mode.

    Is everyone free on Saturday evening? Or anytime this weekend for some airborne action?

    This Saturday is a no-no for me, but I should be able to make either this Sunday, or any time next weekend. I somehow doubt scheduling this for a weekday evening will work very well, exams for many and all.

    So the guns of icarus is built on the Unity engine. I was amazed to see how many popular games are built on this engine. Apparently it's now free to develop mobile games on Unity.

    Sunday sounds good, what sort of time?

    We should probably share steam names too.

    Just for the record, I have played a total of about 5 matches with randomers and I can confirm this is a pretty awesome game. Although stay away from that experimental shot gunner ability - hard to aim, and destroys your gun after 1 shot.

    Sunday is good for me, and with no exams on Monday (in fact, it is half-term too) I can continue playing well into the night if required. 8:00pm start? Also, voice chat? Will we use in-game voice chat or perhaps something like Skype? Steam chat is a no-no though, since it has about 2 seconds of latency.

    We could use the B-T mumble server for voip if steam doesn't work for you guys. I'll be online from about 1800 onwards, baring accidents and acts of god.
