is now underway for Wings: Director's Cut
, an update/remake of Cinemaware's classic World War I flying game for the Amiga (thanks Joao). Here's what they are hoping to achieve:
If we achieve the minimum funding goal, we will recreate the original game in all its glory – but this time, with full HD graphics & sound, enhanced animations, a revised UI and enhancements to the control interface in order to support current input methods such as touchscreen control. Our target platforms are iOS & Android devices (tablets and mobile devices) and Windows PC. Potential future platforms are Macintosh and videogame consoles. The game will be DRM-free and no additional content will be up for sale – you get the whole game in its entire, original glory!
However, and this is where it gets most interesting – help us achieve higher funding levels and we will add NEW missions, NEW diary entries and story elements, NEW landscapes, MORE & BETTER animations, ADDITIONAL music tracks, and maybe even MORE COMBAT SEQUENCE MINI-GAMES - making it a truly rich, ultimate DIRECTOR’S CUT! But don’t worry – we won’t screw around with the classic gameplay – it will still be the Wings you know and love! (We will be posting our stretch goals in a future update as well as on the Wings: Director's Cut hotsite).
