I sent an email off to them. Sometimes indie studios will give out keys to YouTubers even as lowly as me. It looks like a really cool game though, reminds me of Tailspin.

great idea.. I loved tailspin and all those fancy fantasy plane-games like Airpower:


off course over the years i also collected some fun stuff on their real word counterparts, the designs of the 1930ies... so much amazing stuff.

There are plenty of photos of how life was on the giant US airship-carriers USS Macon ZRS-5 and USS Akron ZRS-4. They even apeared in movies, like "here comes the navy"



I somehow forgot the name of another movie one was in, about flying near the poles where they had a large part of a californian desert painted white to act as snow from the 30ies... dam.

That Airpower game looks really interesting I like the idea of running your own airforce. American airships, not a lot of people know we had any. Both were lost in bad weather, that was the time people realized they were to accident prone to be reliable flyers.

I just picked up a cool looking game on steam. Its a world war one grand strategy game. Its has the worst interface i have ever seen unfortunately. Maybe someday I'll get the hang of it. Gonna have to shelf it for now I don't have the time to play through the two hour tutorial.

If I get BOMB soon i might make a video for it on Monday. If i don't I'm gonna play Wings! Remastered.

well, It was also a bit limited in terms of gameplay, but quite advanced for its time. I liked the map-part where you could also win support with diplomacy.. and different factions, but the map itself was a bit too random sprinkling of cities and it could have easily included a bit more of a tech-tree (it had none, you picked your 2 types of planes at the beginning.) Overall a top candidate for a re-make.

despite not really having the machine for it, i ran some tests on BOMB..

actually, I must say the story would be quite good and fitting if it wasn´t for the very terrible presentation, that really takes away a lot of its potential in the campaign..

gameplay is ok, but very "warthunderish" in the fm department, which includes some odd things.. but the look and gameplay dynamics look very promising for a casual game. I hope it gets some polish, then I can see it really beeing a great casual flight title.

I agree, hopefully they shine it up nice and it will come out ok.

Looks like the old Crimson Sky (?) games.

I never played those back in the late 90s but they seemed to have devoted fans.

Crimson skies was actually nice in some aspects for its time... even though it was a bit copied together from other stuff.. the only thing was that some things were clearly made by some not so aviation minded people so it hat its awkward moments..

with bomb I like the much freeer, casual aproach... but it has its weakpoints. But overall I think it is great project with lots of potential and I don´t regret buying it.

and: the developers actually respond to suggestions, so I think it has good hopes of turning out right.

it even seems to have some good landing challenges

oh, and while you are right with the "it should be more finished" first oppinion, I still think you should make a first look vid, many are interested in seeing some basics on this game.. and there aren´t many vids on it. Maybe some "first look" skirmish gameplay with just some of the most finished stuff, like a short fight with the King cab plane vs "Roqual" flyingboat (the two most finished planes) and not too much of a hassle on the tuscany map or so. It should give a good general impression.
