For Immediate Release


I am happy to announce that Airships: Conquer the Skies will be released on August 16, 2018.

It’s been five years of development, nearly all of it with public builds available, going from a ship construction prototype with weirdly greenish-tinged wood to its current state, with multiplayer, dragons, landships, and well, more ship design.

Here’s a bunch of the cool stuff the game now contains:


     Free-form ship design where you’re not limited to some fixed layout

     Historically authentic heraldry

     Dragon taming

     Giant sky squid that eat your crew

     Grappling hooks

     Giant land-walkers

     An in-game editor for challenge missions

     A combat replay system that lets you re-enter the fight on either side

     Multiplayer map conquest

     Extensive modding support with more than a hundred mods, adding a huge number of of extra modules and other things
