Summary

Airmen is a first person shooter where players build and battle their own custom airships. Start with an empty hangar and build a steampunk airship piece by piece. Once your ship is ready, you and up to four friends can crew your airship together into combat. Operate your vessel and destroy or commandeer others in first person! Airships are destroyed exactly how they're built: piece by piece.

Features

  • Build your own airship with a growing catalog of 70+ parts!
  • Equip your ships with cannons, gatling guns, pigeon-guided missiles, rams, harpoons, railguns, and player operated turrets.
  • Battle 4v4 against human or AI airships.
  • Crew your airship with a up to 4 friends.
  • Board your enemies and commandeer their ship.
  • Every airship component is individually destructable, (a ship without balloons falls, a ship without propellers can't move, etc.)!

Update Notes

The newly added armored balloon has the hitpoints of a drum balloon and damage reduction of armor wrapped into a small package. It's shape and connection points make it a tough part to build with but it opens up entirely new ship designs.

Armored Balloons in Use

Armored balloons in use


Armored skinning is intended to function similarly to rigging: a light high surface area block. This works best in larger ships where many components can replace zero protection with discount protect. We hope to add more parts along the skinning style in the future.

Armored skinning in use


Wondering what's possible with both combined?

An airship using skinning and armored balloons


The new lobby focuses on showing all players inside it at all times. On top of better visibility, AI are now named after their ships which can now be changed by right clicking them. Players can also choose to spectate rather than joining an empty crew.

New deathmatch lobby


Harpoon ropes are now viable targets for destruction but only when fully taught. This will help curtain gatling gun/harpoon body slam combos and help a ship's crew repel boarding parties.

Destroying harpoons by shooting the rope


Players can no longer un-crouch when their head space becomes occupied. Before, it was easy to squeeze yourself into tight spots, expand, and shoot up to the top of the ship.

This player cannot uncrouch


Grab the latest build here and join us on Discord for our next public playtests Saturday 5/13 3PM ET and Monday 5/15 at 7PM ET.
