I spy matchmaking on the horizon.

Hello Everyone!

As matchmaking gets closer, we want to share everything we’ve learned working on it in the past six months, the monumental changes and shifts we’ve made due to the amazing ideas and feedback that’s been given to us, and what you guys should expect to see in your game very soon. You’ll find us live at 3 pm eastern at twitch.tv/gunsoficarus.

We’d love everyone to show up, supporters, detractors, and everyone in between, so you can hear what we want to put forth and we can get your feedback as we wrap up on some huge changes.

We’re more than happy to talk about everything from what led to this choice to some of the crazy steps we’ve taken along the way so bring your questions and an open mind.

Thank you again for everyone who came out to help us test at any point. Your efforts, critiques, and input made the system 100 times stronger than we could have ever imagined.

FAQ incoming after the jump soon

A first look at the Baronies boss ships

Good morning Icarus! It’s time to talk about our week, our work, and what’s coming up.

Our PAX showing got some amazing reactions from the casters and press that got to see it and we took their compliments and critiques as a jumping off point for some amazing ideas that will be coming. To talk about it, our fast approaching 2 year anniversary or anything else join us at twitch.tv/gunsoficarus at 3 pm eastern, 7 pm gmt, for the Dev Fireside Chat!

Think this ship looks good, you should see it on the floor… of our hot springs defense map.

Today, tomorrow, and Sunday we’ll be at PAX showing off the second of three game mods for Co-Op mode: Defense!

If like myself you aren’t actually at PAX, have no fear! We’re going to be streaming a match live at 3 pm in place of the regular dev hour. You’ll get to see the same first look that the press is getting as it happens!

So join us at twitch.tv/gunsoficarus at 3 pm eastern, 7 pm gmt!

Cut the red wire!
Or upgrade the computer either way.

Going to be a light week everyone. The entire office is playing, building, and fixing defense mode, the second type of play for the Co-Op expansion. We need to be ready for PAX Prime and we have dedicated almost every waking moment to that.

To hear about our testing and what we’re working on join us at twitch.tv/gunsoficarus at 3 pm eastern, 7 pm gmt.
