Hello to you all fans! For this week we’ve got tons of news for you. Here’s the key points nicely broken down into their own sections.
AirBuccaneers HD goes IndieGoGo
We’ve launched a campaign in IndieGoGo! This is just one way of spreading information on AirBuccaneers HD to more people, but it is also another way to purchase the game. We also added some more stuff into the Pre-Purchase packs of AirBuccaneers HD. Naturally if you had already made a purchase through our shop earlier you’ll get all of the extras that were added now. And you also receive all said extras if you purchase now through our shop.
Here’s a heart warming plea of help from the poor Vikings:
And here’s a descriptive table on the contents of the packs. The last two packs are only available via IndieGoGo.
The Last Song of Väinämöinen explained
Last week we threw this trailer out to the world:
There was lots of commotion about this video and about the events it depicts. We’ll here’s the truth:
The Last Song of Väinämöinen is the most devastating weapon of mass destruction ever seen in video gaming history. The player can summon the Old God, Väinämöinen, to the battlefield. Once summoned Väinämöinen ascends onto the battlefield and starts to play the Last Song with his Kantele (Traditional Finnish instrument.) made from the jawbone of giant pike. As Väinämöinen plays his song, the crust of the earth shatters, trees burst into flames, rivers boil away and ultimately the whole universe collapses on itself. And then there’s only silence.
But the gods are fickle and like always, there’s a catch. The players can only use this weapon of mass destruction once. That is ONCE EVER. Not once per round. Not once per server or battle. Once. Ever. Period.
Also, only those who purchase the game before the release of the Alpha version – that is before 28th of February – will get this weapon.
These weapons come available at the Beta stage or possibly at Gold stage. When they do, we’ll be tracking the amount of unused Last Song’s on the AirBuccaneers HD website.
So if you haven’t bought the game yet, act soon as there’s only two weeks left to get the Last Song of Väinämöinen.
50 000 Accounts Challenge
Right now the development of AirBuccaneers HD is in dire need of your help. We ask that you tell your friends about this game, make them test it and get the fire of buccaneering burning in their hearts. We ask that you make Let’s Play videos, tutorial videos, fan trailers and spread them around. We ask that you go to different gaming forums and tell people about this game. We ask that you demand gaming magazines, blogs and news sites to look into this game and write about it.
So why would you do this?
Of course so that the game may live and we all can take to the skies and keep on buccaneering in the future too. But as an added incentive we have a competition going: If we sell at least 50 000 game accounts before the launch of the Beta version – which will happen on E3 2012 – we’ll give everyone who bought the game before said Beta release even more extra stuff. These include:
- Exclusive Beard that will give a special boost to your character
- Exclusive Peg leg that will give a special boost to your character
- Exclusive Crow that will sit on your character’s shoulder and give a special boost to your character
- Exclusive Grog Mug which you can consume once per round and which will give your character a special boost
- Hidden Extra Super Bonus to be revealed later on
