Welcome back, Prospectors!
To celebrate the final Icarus Beta Weekend and your community creations and adventures we are running a series of competitions and giveaways.

They are the:
  • Best Photo Competition
  • Best Build Competition
  • NVIDIA 3080 graphics card giveaway

To help you enter we have added a new Photo Mode and added NVIDIA’s RTX Global Illumination tech to make Icarus even more beautiful but deadly.

Entries close 12 noon PST / 8pm UTC on Tuesday 23 November.



ICARUS is a big and beautiful (but dangerous) world. And we want you to document it. The most breathtaking environments. Those heart stopping beastly encounters. And plenty of teamwork making your dreams work. Have at it!

Here are the categories:
  • Best Environment Photo - the best beautiful but deadly with beautifully-lit scenery
  • Best Action Photo - captures a moment of intense gameplay frozen in time
  • Best Team Photo - showcase your teamwork or comradery

The winner of each category will win:
  • Icarus T-shirt
  • Icarus mousepad
  • Icarus Wings enamel pin
  • USD$140 Steam Wallet funds (NZD$200)
  • Icarus Supporters Edition key
  • Logitech Pro Wired Gaming Mouse and Gaming Keyboard
How to enter:
  • Put your best photo in the Icarus Discord[discord.com] channel #bw7-photo-competition or use the hashtag #icarusphoto on Twitter or Instagram
  • The top 20 will be shortlisted then be voted on by the entire RocketWerkz Development team and gamerunner Dean Hall. The winners will be announced on Discord and Steam by Friday 26 November.



You knew this was coming. Since the very first prospectors dropped onto Icarus, you have been building some incredible things. From bridges over troubled waters to castles in the sky - your creativity knows no bounds. So now we’re going to reward you for it!

Here are the categories:
  • Best Skyscraper - not necessarily the tallest, but the build that gives the best sense of height
  • Most Impossible Build - the build that seemingly defies the laws of physics and gravity
  • Best Geography - the build that best uses the terrain it is built on, in or around. Maybe a cave, island, cliff face or outcrop.

The winner of each category will win a:
  • Icarus T-shirt
  • Icarus mousepad
  • Icarus Wings enamel pin
  • USD$140 Steam Wallet funds (NZD$200)
  • Icarus Supporters Edition key
  • Logitech Pro Wired Gaming Mouse and Gaming Keyboard
How to enter:
  • Submit a video or screenshot in the Icarus Discord[discord.com] channel #bw7-building-competition or using the hashtag #icarusbuild on Twitter or Instagram
  • The top 20 will be shortlisted then be voted on by the entire RocketWerkz Development team and gamerunner Dean Hall. The winners will be announced on Discord and Steam by Friday 26 November.

Not interested in creating any content? Just want a chance to enter to win some amazing prizes while dropping onto Icarus one last time before launch? Well we’ve got that covered, too. Thanks to NVIDIA, we’re giving away not one but two RTX 3080 GPUs to two lucky Icarus prospectors.

All you have to do... is ENTER HERE[gleam.io]. There are 20 ways to enter and each one (such as following RocketWerkz and NVIDIA on social media) earns you another chance in the prize draw.

Icarus will be a live game with regular updates for a long time to come, so signing up to our social media is a great way to stay up-to-date with new features and content.

Good luck, prospectors! We can’t wait to see the kind of impressive content you create and can’t wait to see you drop onto Icarus: First Cohort in December.

Until then, happy prospecting!
