Hamsterdam Heading to Kickstarter

As you might have heard, there have been news about a Hamster running around Muse Games’ social media lately. The rumours are true: We’re making a kung-fu fighting Hamster game.  Muses Derek, Vic & CS, with the help of some very talented artists, have been working on a new brawler called Hamsterdam!

Hamsterdam will be a Nintendo Switch game, also available for PC, iOS, Android, and PS Vita!

It features Pimm a small hamster, who’s grandpa gets kidnapped as Hamsterdam gets overrun by an evil Chinchilla. But don’t worry, you got a scooter, and a black belt in hamster-fu! The game is a mix of fighting, rhythm, precision, combos, Chinchilla boss battles, and some furious button / screen mashing.

We’re so excited to finally show it to you!

To support our collaborators, and to invite you all to help us test this game, we’re starting a small Kickstarter Campaign.


Kickstarter enables us to not only assure that you get Hamsterdam on all the platforms we are releasing on, but it also lets us do more fun stuff like exclusive Hamster costumes for Guns of Icarus, and, oh, A HAMSTER PLUSHIE?!


You’ve been our biggest supporters, and we are so incredibly honored to show you what we’ve been up to. We’ve grown so much as developers, and it’s been greatly thanks to you. With any luck, you will show Hamsterdam as much love, as you’ve done for Guns of Icarus.


Don’t worry, we are working on some truly amazing things behind the scenes, including new Maps, Discord Integration, Mixer Support, and a certain Microsoft cross-platform might be on the way (hint hint, nudge nudge..) We can’t say anymore, but stay tuned!

Hamsterdam hasn’t slowed us down in any way, but it has given us a new drive, and we are so thrilled to share this new venture with you.


Thanks so much again for your support!
Clear Skies,
Bubbles for Team Muse

Pax East 2018 – Boston

“PS4, PC, PS4, PC, PS4!” -Cameron “Kirk” Bajus

We had a blast at Pax East this year showing off Guns of Icarus Alliance ahead of the PS4 launch on May 1st! But for long time fans and new crew alike, we had an exciting twist. At every seat in our booth, we sat PC next to PS4 in the same match, on the same ships. Our setup was so seamless that many of our lovely convention guests didn’t even realize it till we pointed out the controllers and keyboards in their friend’s hands! Voice chat will also be working cross-platform between Steam and PS4, but with people sitting next to each other, people opted for real life voice chat 😀  There’s a saying in game development, that the best features feel so natural players won’t even notice them.

Guns of Icarus Alliance 1.4.5 Release Notes


Hi everyone!

While last Alliance prototype update was focused on improving balance, performance, and enemy behavior based on your feedback, this update is more focused on contents.  We’ve been working on a number of things, and we’re excited to finally share some of them with you!  We have quite a few things for you to play around with and test, and you’ll also see a work in progress first version of the world map and progression. As you’ll see, it’s not fully functional yet, but it’s for you to get a first glimpse of the direction we’re taking.

We’ll be hosting another group test session this Saturday, 12.19.15, at 1pm EST, and we’ll send another survey your way after the test session to collect feedback.  In the meantime, if you have questions or issues with the update, you can also email us at feedback@musegames.com.

And if you haven’t pre-order Alliance yet, you can do that on the Humble Store.  Thanks for supporting us!  Continue reading “Guns of Icarus Alliance 1.4.5 Release Notes”

Progress Update on Expansion

Hi everyone!

Whether it be on social media, twitch, or our site (Weekly Progress), our updates on expansions have been more in streams and shorter blurbs, and people have been asking for more snapshot summary updates that are more comprehensive, so here we are!

Before I even start babbling, let me first show everyone what we’re up to.  I figured showing is nearly always more effective than telling.
