If anyone still has free keys I would LOVE one.

Same here ! :D

I'm playing the demo a bit, and it's fun, but there is no way i can be on par with some of the huge bombers i see from time to time ! :D

by the way, why didn't see that game in any bundle ?
I mean, i'll not buy it $10, for sure (especially with the small player community), but in a random bundle, it would give it such a great boost ! :|

Gimbal Newz



1. Expansion: There are just a couple weeks of dev/testing left for the Gimbal Expansion (Beta) features. Some of you have been in on this, so you know what it is. You'll have to wait until the actual release for the complete feature listing, but there will be more parts and popular game modes such as Capture-the-Flag, to really flesh out the game. There is no charge for the expansion- It's just a very large release.

2. Cheap Gimbal: Gimbal is now part of the IndieGala Mass Effect Bundle for the next 11 days. It's Pay-What-You-Want, but you need to beat the price threshold to get Gimbal and Mass Effect 2, among others.

Oh yes they are! And without saying anything more than I should about such things, each and every "thing" coming in the Expansion is, in it's own way, equally as awesome. Especially the physics based

All love for the Bays of 12, as always. But I've said too much as it is! There were.... terrible oaths sworn. Terrible Oaths.  I can say no more.

*ahem*

However, I will highly recommend that people check out the Standing Play Session, which happens to be tonight and indeed every thursday:

You can actually see me flying a now obsolete ramship (damn the nerf that removed the hideous sight exploitfeature!) in the OP picture (the circle ship on the left), IIRC about to collide with a heavily damaged Colin. It's always a good time.

If there are still some free keys in the works, I'd like to take one for a friend if possible.

He played the game with me for a bit but lost interest due to the limitations of the demo, and doesn't have any way to buy the game.

Not to say he deserves it for free or anything, just thought it'd be worth checking~.
free keys?

Necro post from January.  I'm guessing it's not relevant anymore.

Don't have access to anything with the word "game" on it from work. Can you post a changelog or something similar?

Here you go, not a proper changelog up yet, probably because this has been coming together secretly over the last few updates, so I copied the shiny release information for yah and added a few notes of my own.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

In addition to those major changes, there have been a few design and minor balance changes (hood ornaments now cost $25, Damselfly platform now looks more insecty, jet engines look nicer etc) as well as bugfixes. What a great expansion. 

Some pictures (warning, large!):

Oh, and you can also get in game avatars.

EDIt: Oh, and a massive balance change, you can no longer stack engines. Old ships with stacked engines still work though, you just can't make them anymore.

I knew that 3k chassis of jet engines bamfed into one spot and heavily armored would have glorious uses one day. It's got maneuvering, too!

time to put a giant fucking cannon on it
