At its core, the game is about designing airships and fighting with them. Ships are put together out of modules, and the layout of modules matters a great deal: everything on board is done by individual airsailors who need to run around, ferrying coal, ammunition, water and repair tools - and sometimes their fallen comrades.

You can command fleets of airships both against the computer and against other players across the Internet. In addition, there is a single-player strategic mode, where you use your fleet to conquer city after city, unlocking new modules and bonuses with each of them.

The game is now available for early access on itch.io and chec. This second version adds more module types and better multiplayer support.

For $5 I had to try it; love the style and the crew running about the place grabbing ammo and putting fires out. Quite confusing at first though.

Any chance of a steam release?

This game is just lovely, I love supporting early alphas when they look as promising as this one!
