April 8, 2021 -- Join the RocketWerkz team for the premiere of ICARUS gameplay live on Twitch channel surviveicarus beginning at 5pm PST / 8pm EDT today, Thursday April 8th 2021. Creator and RocketWerkz CEO Dean Hall will be joined by Community Manager Lorii Gugich and Executive Producer Brian Hicks to play through an initial ICARUS drop.
“We know that players really want to see the game in action next,” says CEO Dean Hall. “So rather than another gameplay-oriented trailer, we plan to start regular developer streams on Twitch and just start playing it with our community.”

ICARUS is a session-based PvE survival game for up to eight co-op players or solo. Explore a savage alien wilderness in the aftermath of terraforming gone wrong. Survive long enough to mine exotic matter, then return to orbit to craft more advanced tech. Meet your deadline or be left behind forever.
