PAX Prime 2012: Hands on With Guns of Icarus

PAX, PAX Prime, Penny Arcade Expo 2012, Guns of Icarus Online, Muse Games!, Howard Tsao, Emily Compton, Joseph Lieberman

Have you ever wanted to pilot a blimp in a Steampunk setting? How about run around with a hammer fixing anything that can go wrong as dirigibles battle against a crimson sky? Or perhaps manning a gun turret and giving anyone in your path “what for”? Good news is, if any of those sound appealing, Muse Games! is turning their game Guns of Icarus into an online version for Steampunk enthusiasts to enjoy. Guns of Icarus Online looks to pit players against each other in vast maps aimed at conquering the skyward dominion.

During PAX Prime 2012, Draeno was able to get a healthy chunk of play time with the title and speak to a few of the developers on the title. With the video below, the battles were immortalized for all to see. We have to warn you, it is a little on the long side. However, what we are able to show you gives a in-depth look at what it could be like had history gone a different direction.
