has unveiled that the closed beta test for Guns of Icarus Online
will start next month - the company has raised more than $35,000 from pre-orders and donations and recruited over 1,500 testers. Guns of Icarus Online is a multiplayer airship combat game where you will attempt to survive and thrive in the post apocalyptic wasteland, moving from town to town, trading and collecting resources, outfitting your ship, and battling deadly pirates. Each town competes and trades with its neighbors to survive in the wasteland. Your reputation will rise and fall with your actions in each town, opening and closing new options elsewhere for profit. You can join other players to make your town prosper while defending it from raiders who want to plunder your riches.
