Choplifter HD Announced

inXile Entertainment announces Choplifter HD, a revival of the helicopter rescue franchise planned for release this fall. The news is accompanied by this trailer and these screenshots, and there's a timely interview on Big Download discussing the project with Brian Fargo, learning how they secured the rights and their goals for the project. Brian also indicates they expect to release a playable demo. Here's a portion of the announcement:

In Choplifter HD, players take on the role of an up and coming rescue pilot asked to join the elite, international helicopter rescue team C.H.O.P.R. (Coordinated Helicopter Operations, Preservation and Rescue). Pilots will be trained to command a variety of helicopters deployed on more than 20 different missions ranging from captured military prisoner extraction to saving survivors of viral outbreaks. Pilots must bank, hover and touch-down in perilous conditions in order to make their rescue and complete their mission. Developed and published by inXile Entertainment, Choplifter HD dares players to risk their lives in order to save others.

Omg. So many memories on the C64. Except I think I landed on too many of the people I was trying to rescue.
