The game takes place exclusively aboard the trading zeppelin Icarus, where the player's task is to defend the Icarus using gun turrets and by manually repairing damage sustained under fire. As the player progresses through the story, more turrets and armor upgrades can be unlocked to help combat the increasingly difficult waves of enemies encountered at the later stages of the game.
In 2012, Muse Games launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a new version of the game, Guns of Icarus Online. The campaign succeeded on February 21 with a total of $35,237 raised, where $10,000 was sought. The game held a closed beta for Kickstarter backers and pre-orderers.
