Hi Everyone,

This looks promising; Nameless: The Hackers was great... please keep us updated so we won't be COMPLETELY in the dark.

Definetely will try sir! Here are the really rough details (game is still in pre-alpha stage)

The game is a steampunk airship game. You go around the world in your main "mothership" building fighter airships and performing objectives to further the story narrative. In the world, there are certain characters with quests series. Completing the quests will help advance the story, unlock new characters to interact with, along with new upgrades, battle moves, and collectables / materials to augment or build new airships. The battle system is an active combat system that relies on team building and strategic decisions.

Subject to change also. This game will be completely different than NTH. But we do have plans to make more visual novel type of games later on as well

Anyone heard anything about this? I know it's from the same developer of Nameless: The Hackers, which was released after this game was announced. Do the beta testers have any insight, perhaps?
