Red Baron Lands at Mad Otter

Mad Otter Games announces they have landed the rights to the Red Baron series of World War I combat flight simulations developed back in the day by Dynamix, appropriate since Dynamix cofounder Damon Slye is one of the otters at Mad Otter (thanks Big Download). They now have the rights, but not the source code, so they are offering a reward:

Mad Otter Games is very proud to announce that it has acquired all rights to Red Baron, Red Baron II, and Red Baron 3D. Many of the otters worked on the award winning game back in 1989! It was named #4 on the Best Games of All Time (PC) by Computer Gaming World in 1996.

In an effort to bring these games back to life, Mad Otter is offering a finderís fee of $1500 to the first person who can deliver the complete source code to any of these games. Note: complete source code does *not* mean assembly. Original C or C++ please!

Red Baron, Red Baron II, and Red Baron 3D are registered trademarks of Mad Otter Games, Inc.

I can't believe that these WWI games were ever more than the tiniest niche market. Than

Which is a shame - I find them so much more fun than modern sims.
Slower paced means they're more harrowing. You need to get behind someone and pepper them full of holes, knowing some might not even slow them down. You need to worry about blackouts, redouts, wing shearing...

Modern sims are just fire-and-forget missles.
