The science may not be proven, but the destruction is!

Another week and new updates are in Alliance mode.  Paypal backers, Kickstarters, and Humble orders can now get their hands on the new Apollo Precision Lens Array. This destructive beam is cut through problems and opponents with equal measure.

Also being testing in there is the splinter cannon, it doesn’t have a dedicated art asset yet, but its stats and abilities are in and ready to have players hands all over it.

Every week in the Dev App, we hop in at 1 pm eastern on Saturday and test out all the new toys.

We’ll be talking about these new guns and more during the Dev Fireside Chat.  As always it starts at 3 pm eastern at We’ll be answering questions, talking about the work in the office.

Lava maps, big bosses, and plenty of things to destroy

EDIT: Timer does not work, timer doesn’t take timezones into consideration and gave the wrong time!

That’s right if you kickstarted or pre-ordered Co-Op mode, you’ll get hands on with the prototype!

We’re putting the finishing touches on everything and we’re super excited to show off the Pototype to all our amazing supporters.

We’re also doing a drive for reviews so if you haven’t given your thoughts on Guns of Icarus please follow this link and help us out. The power of a review is amazing to us Devs and we were specifically told by Valve at PAX it is a huge deciding power for them.

Please send that link to friends and clan members as well. The more reviews we get the more players we can get for you to fight with and against!
