AirBuccaneers is a Co-operative Vehicle based Team Deathmatch game with fierce aerial battles between the Buccaneers and the Vikings in beautiful Scandinavian landscapes. Players assume the roles of Buccaneers and Vikings and fly around the skies with their heavily armed hot air balloons in squad based combat that demands seamless teamwork and co-operation. The game has been heavily inspired by the Finnish national epic Kalevala and the Nordic Viking mythology. This isn't basic run-and-gun FPS game: The cannons need to be loaded, aimed and ignited, the airships are hard to steer and the winds are fickle, and lone warrior in general is pretty much useless. The goal of the game is to take down enemy airships or dominating a marked point in the map instead of killing other players. AirBuccaneers emphasizes teamwork and co-operation and follows the 4Co ideology that's in the core of LudoCraft's team building serious games: Communication, Coordination, Co-operation and Collaboration.

The campaign for the AirBuccaneers HD continues for another two months until the end of June.

-- The campaign has been a success. We want to offer more people the chance to earn a Premium Account. The campaign and the regular Devs vs Fans battles are an excellent way for us to get constant feedback from our active fans. It's a great help for us, says the Creative Director Tomi Thurlin.

The rules are simple: earn 10,000 Experience Points in 14 days and the Alpha key to activate the Premium Account is yours. You can play both the Buccaneers' and the Vikings' sides, the side is irrelevant for the accumulation of points. The two week timer starts running the first time you log in to the new 0.50 version of the game.

The map screen has a timer telling you how many days, hours and minutes you've got left to earn the 10,000 XP. And of course there's a counter showing how much XP you still have to earn to gain the free Alpha key.

The fans can put their skills to the test against the AirBuccaneers developers regularly in the Devs vs Fans battles. The next battle will be on May 9th at 20:00 GMT+3.

Game review comments on AirBuccaneers HD:

-- This is a game with much bravado, clearly, but also the balls to back it up. The sky really is the limit for this blimp-based battleground. Rowan Davies, IndieGameMagazine.

-- A game where I can finally live out my dreams of coordination and unity. Also, it's about combat blimps, which is totally badass. Gerrard Winter, IndieGameMagazine.

-- We do like a bit of balloon war, and few games do that as proficiently as the awesome AirBuccaneers HD. Jim Rossignol, RockPaperShotgun.

Thats 8pm Arizona time!
Looking forward to playing with you guys... I'm going to install the new update...
Are points defined by how many kills you have?
I'm asking because I like to drive the air-ships and help navigate so other soldiers can utilize the cannons, which means I probably won't have a lot of kills.
