Skalgrim - Icarus Discord

Hello Prospectors!
Wow, what a fantastic first Beta Weekend!

Not only did you get to play Icarus for the very first time, you also gave us your important feedback so we can make the game better, thank you! We will provide updates on the state of Icarus and our plans for the next Beta Weekend in another post.

Many of you chose to stream and create content on Icarus for your online communities, and it was an absolute pleasure for us at RocketWerkz to watch! We saw you hunt, swim, mine, build homes, cook, make armour, and more. We also witnessed a large majority of you setting yourselves on fire and deciding to run into the forest, as well as your homes. No judgement from us, Prospectors! We have been there too (it was very entertaining).

Alongside the joyful laughs that were had, we saw YouTube videos from creators sharing their opinions on our beta and providing advice for first time players! Whatever content you create around Icarus, we appreciate the diversity among our community. Don't forget to tag us @survievicarus or use our hashtag #surviveicarus!

Discord Community
5,000 members joined our Discord server over the course of the weekend bringing our total to over 13,000! We prepared for this and set up specific Beta Weekend channels for you to chat in and use. One of these channels was for you to share your #screenshots! Here's a bunch of hand picked screenshots that we wanted to show off below, and credited because you deserve it!
