Gnarly Kings of Air - Group for Scheduled Matches

February 24th, 2014

Some active members of the AirBuccaneers community have set up a new group for organizing scheduled matches. The previous group suffered from a name which was unlinkable due to Steam's censor filters.

The new group is called Gnarly Kings of Air

"Air Buccaneers delivers one of the most rewarding cooperative multiplayer experiences available"7.5/10 – IGN

"THE HOLY GRAIL OF MULTIPLAYER COMBAT"
9/10 – Pixels For Breakfast

"Team-based Air Buccaneers is all about manning a slow, lumbering battle-balloon, but it manages to be a lot more tense, exciting and funny than that might sound."
80/100 – PC Gamer

“There’s depth that I never expected when I first started playing, and, more importantly, it’s immensely fun.”

About the Game

Welcome to the ancient North, once the cradle of culture and peace, but is now corrupted by magic and inhabited by nasty bandits sowing destruction in airships.


Choose to be a vicious Buccaneer or an infamous Viking and take a glider to the skies. Your goal is to drop enemy vessels and secure dominance of the ancient North. Fire cannons, help others, board enemy ships or be the captain – whatever it takes to get your enemies out of the way. The success, as well as the bitter defeat, is solely dependent on how well you co-operate with your crew mates.


Finding the right kind of battle strategy is not self-evident in the merciless winds and twisted magic of the North...

AirBuccaneers is a fun game for about an hour. Way to over priced at $14.99 for the content. Game has potiental but poorly put together. Don't get me wrong it was fun durning the day when people are acutally logged on to the servers. If you a late night gamer this is not the game for you cause no one is on. Good concept bad deployment of the game.

Airbuccaneers is an amazing, great concept. I would absolutly buy and play a full out console version. This game is about two teams, Vikings and Buccaneers, in a sky battle. I love the thought that the creators but behind each ship. The ships that you can control vary from hang-gliders to 1 person ballons all the way to a huge command ship. Each base is well defended with ground cannons and gametypes include a king-of-the-hill and normal points battle. The characters have great items that can be equiped.

The main problem is THAT NO REAL PLAYERS ARE EVER ON THE SERVERS! They have bots that fill a few spaces on each team, but nothing like the game play shown in the trailer. I would not recommend this game until it becomes populated, but I have little hope that this game will make a comeback.

You will have a hard time finding players. You will rarely have more than 8 people on the entire planet at any given time. This alone should be warning enough. You need human players, there are no bots.

I do not know why so few players stick to the game. While I like the gameplay, it requires more patience than action. It's about airships, and ships move, turn and fire slowly.

Only buy while it is on sale. Not because of the money, but a sale gives a temporary rise in players.

Very enjoyable game when the servers were busy - however nowadays the most you might get is a handful of people thrown in with the bots. And I've got to say, I think it's a complete shame, really and truly. It is an innovative and exciting premise a breath of fresh air from the litany of Terraria clones, army FPS's & FTPMMORPPGS♥♥♥♥THAT♥♥♥♥.

The problem seems to be that the dev's seem to no longer support it, as it's had no updates in a long while.

To make thinks worse the game still retains a fairly hefty price tag of €13.99 - which I think is idiotic.
What the devs should be doing (if they have no intention of supporting it properly) is to be flogging it off cheaply in steam sales on a regular basis to increase the player base and breath some life into the game.

Currently as is, with so few people, I can't say that I'd recommend it for the price - however the game itself is brilliant fun and the level of co-operation I came across with strangers was amazing.

So in short, I am going to recommend this game on the games merits, but would either wait for it to go on sale or for the price to drop.

Interesting concept, but it gets boring quickly. It is multiplayer only, and there is hardly ever enough players online to make a fun game. Waste of money.

Nice concept, team vs team in the skies.
Air Bucaneers VS Vikings (Blue and Red) battling in different airships in the sky. Shoot down and destroy other airships using things like cannons.

This was an Indie Online game Greenlit by the communtiy to get on Steam, it doesn't look great, is decent in terms of fun gameplay but missing a lot.

Since servers are always dead, there isn't bots and I didn't play for long I don't recommend this game.
3/10
