Airship Dragoon version 1.3 (latest as of 4 days ago) is available direct from IndieGameStand. Desura keys are available and the latest patch should go through in about 7 to 10 days (which is what v1.2 took to get through their system).

Thanks, Phaerless!

Airship Dragoon's greenlight has got a much needed boost by +8% and hopefully this will be the start of higher visibilty of the game.

Many thanks to the IGS team for all of their help and especially Matt for interview.

Yes Airship Dragoon has been Greenlit, and I just received confirmation that I am now an accredited Steamworks developer. HUZZAH!

Thanks to everybody who voted it through Greenlight.

:D

They'll be another update in the next week or so with additional troop models, reworked mountainous environments, a few customer requested functions/changes and a bug fix for a lockup issue which was introduced in version 1.4. They'll also be the release of the "realism mod" which replaces all the models and textures in the battlefields with fancy hi-res environments.

For a preview of that, check out my devblog http://yorkshirerifles.blogspot.co.uk/

Congrats, Steve! Great looking update too. :)

Airship Dragoon has been updated to v1.4.8.
The bonus map/level files have also been updated, and the new Realism Mod included.

Note: it can take Desura up to a week to process and encode the files for their wrapper, so they won't be up there yet, but the IGS direct downloads in your Game Wallet are ready to go!
