Wing Kings - Indie game from the makers of Don't Die Mr Robot

Recommended Posts

My bud at Infinite State games has uploaded a trailer for their next game.

 

 

Sadly Don't Die Mr Robot didn't do very well despite being a bloody excellent game. It's hard to get gaming sites to cover you unless you're already a big name these days.

They have an issue where their games don't video or screenshot well. I was privy to DDMR during development and I just plain didn't like it. Until I got to play it.

I'm also buddies with one of the guys from Infinite State Games! Looking forwards to playing the game once it's out! 

I'm also doing a fair amount of the music for this game, including the tune heard in the video!

I'm not buddies with anyone involved and I think it looks a bit like a less interesting version of Luftrausers.

That's a banging tune on the trailer. I love it

Hello all!  Mike here from ISG.

 

Yeah! It's totally not Luftrausers!  If anything, it's more inspired by Wings of Fury on the Amiga.  Only a roguelike and more arcadey-sim.

 

For a start, each new game algorithmically generates an entirely new landscape and missions for you. There's a huge amount of mission objectives spanning land air and sea over lots of different environments and a dynamic day/night thang going on.

 

Secondly, shooting planes out of the sky is a small proportion of the game.  You're also blowing up troops and vehicles, capturing and landing at bases, jumping out of your plane, landing on an enemy plane and ripping the pilot out in a cheeky mid-air steal

 

Thirdly, we are having multiplayer online dogfighting, totally awesome metal and what some might call slightly more detailed art than Luftrausers.

 

Sorry some of you didn't enjoy DDMR! It was pretty well received elsewhere with a load of 8/10 and 9/10 scores.  Can't please everyone :)

Negging people for saying it looks like Luftrausers, when from the only trailer posted in the thread, it actually does look an awful lot like it, is just odd.

 

Perhaps a better trailer, showing some of the variation mentioned above might help.

 

Anyway, I couldn't get on with Luftrausers at all, hopefully this is more up my street.

Well, chucking up a 'blatant rip off' accusation isn't gonna make me poz him is it :D

 

We'll do another trailer when we've got more to show.  

 

 

 

You're right, your World War 2 arcadey flight-based roguelike with seemingly identical flight mechanics to an existing, brilliant, World War 2 arcadey flight-based roguelike doesn't seem much like it. It seems like a version of it with the style, humour, clarity of design and coherent presentation removed to cram in a aspects of a game from 1987 that was frankly tedious at the time.

 

Good luck with it!
