Red Baron Remake Kickstarter

A new Kickstarter is underway from Mad Otter Games to raise a quarter-million dollars to develop an updated version of Red Baron, Dynamix's classic World War I combat flight simulator, designed by Damon Slye, creator of the original. They propose an easy-to-learn dogfighting game with a single-player campaign, a persistent multiplayer world with no subscription fees or pay-to-win, as well as a MOBA setting. They have put $250K into the project so far, and say alpha testing is near. Here's a bit more:

Red Baron will hit the sweet spot between simulation and game dead-on. We will emulate the controls of flight authentically but with a focus on fun and intuitive gameplay. Our design goal is to make it easy to play but hard to master.

You will be able to hop into your airplane and begin playing in minutes. The controls will be intuitive and easy to grasp. You won’t have to have a degree in advanced aerodynamics to understand how to fly and fight. Under the hood, the game will be running a complex and realistic simulation, but we will hide the complexities from new players and let them discover them over time at their own pace.

We want to focus on an immersive and gallant flying experience. It is not just about documental realism: placing every gauge, dial, and knob in the right place, but about confronting the player with the same challenges and psychological reality that WWI Aces faced.
