AirBuccaneers - (Alice O'Connor)


Something about the concept of “airship crews try to blow each other out of the sky” made AirBuccaneers popular in the RPS treehouse since its beginnings as a mod for Unreal Tournament 2004, when we organised irregular matches with you motley crew. If you too wish to man guns, take the wheel, lead boarding parties, bomb from gliders, or generally murder lots of men in silly ways, good news! Developers Ludocraft have now made their commercial follow-up AirBuccaneers HD free to everyone, so you can grab it on Steam and begin plundering today.

Two years ago we launched AirBuccaneers HD, a multiplayer airship-FPS game about vicious Buccaneers and infamous Vikings battling in the sky. In honor of this anniversary we decided to bring more battle, joy and happiness to your holiday season. AirBuccaneers is now FREE on Steam!

Soon it´s the end of the year and the Ragnarok is getting closer...

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

You can find it here:

Join the group and fight for the domination of the skies!

AirBuccaneers is on the new Bundle Stars FPS Warriors 2 bundle with 7 other awesome games!

Find it here:

Games included in the bundle:
  • AirBuccaneers
  • Nuclear Dawn
  • Hard Reset
  • Painkiller Overdose
  • Painkiller: Black Edition
  • Zeno Clash
  • Zeno Clash 2
  • Chaser

There's probably enough loose change in your sofa right now to get in on the latest Bundle Stars deal. $3.98 will get you eight first-person shooters, with a nice variety of games that are basically nothing but shooting, and some with a little less shooting, such as Zeno Clash 2.

The games in the FPS Warriors 2 bundle are Zeno Clash, Zeno Clash 2, Air Buccaneers, Hard Reset, Nuclear Dawn, Painkiller Overdose, Painkiller: Black Edition, and Chaser.

You have a whole 28 days to pull the trigger on this one. I can personally vouch for the quality of Hard Reset and the Painkiller games, both of which are very straight forward, throwback, "shut up and kill everything that moves" kind of games. Do note, however, that Painkiller Overdose and Black Edition are from 2004 and 2007, and not the newer, better looking Painkiller Hell and Damnation released in 2012.

Zeno Clash and Zeno Clash 2 are known for their melee combat and bizzare art style, and Air Buccaneers and Nuclear Dawn are both multiplayer games with interesting twists. Air Buccaneers has you and your team manning a slow, lumbering battle-balloon, while Nuclear Dawn, which is also the best reviewed game in the bundle on PC Gamer, combines FPS and RTS elements. We thought it was "surprisingly deep and well-designed."

I haven't played Chaser, released in 2003, but for $0.49, there isn't much to lose on the gamble.

AirBuccaneers has been updated to use Unity 4.2 and the update is live now.

This should fix a set of issues, including the nefarious "getThreadContext Failed" one. Please let us know if this issue persists or new ones arise.
