Air Campaign: B-17

Post by mst007 » Sun Feb 04, 2018 9:50 pm

I think I may have said enough with the subject title? :) If not...

1) This is not a flight sim, its a bomber and crew management game, 18 years after The Mighty 8th was released, I think its the right time. The recent "Bomber Crew" has had spectacular success but is essentially an arcade style cartoon RTS.
2) Manage a Bombardment Group through multiple campaigns, or try to get your customised crew through their 25 missions
3) DLC options for other bombers

Air Campaign series could continue in other theatres, Battle of Britain Spitfire Sqn, Carrier-based Wildcats in the Pacific, German fighter defence of the Reich?

This game design style has sit in the era of board games for far too long and has proven massively successful as a stand-alone genre.

As with most games, it sounds like it would be great provided that you had a design/development team who really loved the premise and were all about the subject matter. I think it could be very cool!
