Gothic Angel

How do you like me now?

AirMech finally has a new website! This is one of those projects we've been working on in the background for a while now, and it's at the point where we want to set it live and start sharing it with the world. There is still a lot to do, but it's miles better than our old site, so you don't have to be embarrassed to refer your friends to AirMech anymore! Check it out: http://airmech.com

We have a new Angel Variant and it's amazing looking: Gothic Angel! The way the wings look when she's in robot mode are amazing. I'm excited for more of the future Variants on the way now that the attention to detail is going in this direction!

Some people have been asking about the DVIP Club Card. It's something we added for our Diamond VIPs (total spend of over $120, or one time purchase of the largest Diamond Bundle) to give them some bonus items. It may be something exclusive, or just something early before anyone else can buy it, or whatever little perks we come up with. We will change what the bonus items are every once in a while, and with this patch we're moving to our second bonus: Flappy Bird! Note that you don't get old bonus items when you get Diamond VIP, you just get the current bonus items. So be sure to log in at least once a month and collect your goodies!

Lots of updates to map art on Spiral and Twin Peaks, improvements to Challenges for new players, and the usual healthy serving of improvements, balance tweaks, and bug fixes. Feel free to poke around the site, you'll find all the cool new artwork under the Media > Wallpapers section. Plus we'll have some surprises to share for PAX East!
