Last year, I wrote about Guns of Icarus Online, an interesting, atmospheric shooter set on board opposing steam/dieselpunk airships. Since then, developer Muse Games has unveiled a Kickstarter campaign for the long-awaited paid expansion, Adventure mode. Muse’s stated plan for Adventure includes three key elements:
1. PVE and co-op gameplay, unlocked at the Kickstarter’s threshold of $100,000;
2. An in-game economy and faction system, flagged as Muse’s first major stretch goal ($350,000)
3. Worldbuilding tools, flagged as the second stretch goal ($500,000).
Muse has stated that, should it secure more than $100,000 but less than the full $500,000, all Kickstarter backers will receive a “season pass” that will entitle them to future elements of Adventure Mode as and when they are released.
