Hi everyone! Happy Holidays! The release of Update 1.3.4 is here! With quite a few new contents, features, and fixes for your enjoyment. And, here are the release notes!
The first season of the Guns of Icarus competitive scene has ended! I’d like to thank everyone for their amazing performances in the end of season tournament that we are officially naming The Fabria Conclusion.
The first day was a rapidfire round robin event that saw the Aeronautical Knights, Bully Boys, Ducks, Glowwater Thralls, Museosaurs, Sky Invading Rhinos, The Flying Dutchmen, and Zill’s Merry Men pushing onto the second day’s single elimination.
There were some amazing matches with teams showing top forms, and if you’d like to watch the action as it unfolded, you can find videos on our Youtube page.
Some of the highlights of day 1 include the Glowwater Thralls vs Zill’s Merry Men where the Thralls showed off the spires firepower by locking down ships with a Hwacha and Hades combo. The Merry Men were were forced into a more defensive position, but their counter attack gained them four kills without answer from the Thralls. Grouping back up the Thralls blasted through the firing line to gain three more kills without losing a ship and winning them the game.
Another amazing moment was Polaris’s Galleon in the tight confines of the Paritan Rumble. The behemoth tanked and brawled both enemy Pyramidions with a finishing ram by it’s allied Goldfish for the rounds first kill.
Second day spoilers after the jump…

Winter is finally here! Aside from battling our landlord to plug up a hole in our room (and trying not to freeze to death in the meantime), we’re again working on number of new additions and fixes to Skirmish and making good progress with Co-op. While we’re working hard on getting things done, let me give you a tour around the studio
A bunch of things we’re working on are features that will hopefully mitigate some heated situations in the game right now. The two that I’d like to explain in-depth before we release onto Dev App and into Production is Ship Scramble and Slot Swapping.

On October 29th, we will be 1 year old!
We’ll be giving out a free hat, badge, and special community challenges to everyone who join us in game. We’ll also be running a marathon long dev game stream to twitch.tv/gunsoficarus so we can spend the day with our amazing community who continues to astound us in so many ways. To add a special bang to our celebration on October 29th we’re loading the ships with fireworks and streamers, so when they explode it’ll be truly spectacular. And don’t be surprised to see a cake that Eugene baked somewhere
