Wings: Director's Cut Kickstarter

A Kickstarter 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).

On the Amiga the bombing run was from above, like Raiden, and the strafing was isometric, like awesome! Both very cool. The mission structure and persistence were very cool. It did a lot of things very well and very modern.

I think done properly the gameplay will still hold up. Pirates! Was even older (And yes, deeper) but the mini games mostly held up very well in the remake. The dancing was a bit boring but hey, so were aristocratic women of the time!

Even if you don't like it, a successful port will surely lead to someone taking on ICFTD and Rocket Ranger!
