Ok, so you like to play games, we know that since you’re reading this post and this site. What we really want to do is play them with you. This is our huge monthly gaming session where the GTN team will be coming online together and playing games with you.
This month we’ve decided to try something a little different to the usual games we all play, AirBuccaneers HD. It’s a full game being made from the basis of a UT 2004 mod and involves players piloting air balloons around maps and firing cannons at one another to shoot ships down.
This is an Alpha version of the game, so it isn’t polished to the usual standards but it is extremely playable and fun, especially with friends.
So, you want to join us? Well, you’ll need to join our group on Steam if you haven’t already done so (Join here) and join our group chat on Friday 9th March 2012 from 20:00GMT onwards. You’ll also need to download the Alpha (Download here) and we’ll let you know all the details on the night.
