I present you: Wing Over Redux!
Some Info and Screenshots from our new BIG Project!
Basically Wing Over Redux is a remake from an old PSX Game called "Wing Over".
You have a plane wich you can upgrade and buy new parts and weapons for. Later ingame you can also buy new Planes. You fight with 3 other Wingmen against the enemy Team wich also consists of 4 Planes. Each Team has a base with 4 Towers.
The goal? Simple: You need to either shoot down all Enemy Planes or destroy the enemy base to win a round. When you win you get more cash, the more cash you get the better wingmen you can hire and better plane you can buy.
Wingmen can be given orders via Command System. But before we go any further, here some Screenshots:
This is the Player with his Squadron above his own Base.
Player has opened the Command Menu via ENTER Button. Minimap becomes a big Map for tactical overview.
The Player calls Takeya and now has various orders he can give.
At this very moment, the Player ordered his Wingman(girl) to attack the enemy Captain. The Wingman responds.
The player had a lock on the Enemy and launched a Missile, but enemy evaded.
Both the Player and his Wingman attacked an Escaping Enemy. If an Enemy wants to give up, he releases a white smoke trail. It is deemed dishonorable in the tournament to attack an Enemy that gave up, so the Player looses Respect (in the left corner). As if that wouldn't be enough, a Teammate of the enemy is engaging the player.
Caught your Attention? If not then see ya at our next game! If so, then read further for Story and Features.
Wing Over is an Arial Tournament in wich the best of the best fighterpilots compete in order to become the ace of all aces. Your Character (you get to name him the way you want) had a father who was a legendary Ace but dissapeared years ago. During his absence a third world war nearly took place but was prevented by a new State, the State of N.I. (it's fictitious).
The great world powers are now sick of constantly spending so much money into all of their Aircraft and need to finally get some battle data by having their top Pilots and new Aircraft going through actual combat. The President of N.I. suggests holding a Contest, the Wing Over Tournament, to determine not only what plane is the best, but also to see who is the best pilot on the world.
YOU have dreamed about winning this tournament since you were a child and now your chance is here to make it come true!
At the beginning of the game when you arrive the Airforce Base, nobody knows you. It's your Mission to gain respect and build up a Team so you can go head on head with the best pilots this world has seen.
In the tournament almost every flight vehicle is allowed. Buy yourself a WW2 Fighter, a ultra modern stealth fighter plane or a Fokker and become the new modern Red Baron!
You think fighting against a Squadron of High Tech Planes with your little WW1 Plane isn't crazy enough? Then buy a freakin' Rocket Belt and try again! If everything else fails, buy a Stealth Bomber and bomb the enemy base to ashes!
-Evade with different Counter measures!
You can buy the traditional flares and double click to quickly release one and shake of that nasty missile! When you got one of the top secret planes, you got an Anti Missile Shield wich activate itself!
You can't just buy stuff for yourself. You must also buy new upgrades, weapons etc. for your team.
- It's more than just flying
Apart from the Air Combat, you also need to go around the base and need to constantly eat and drink. If you get a blackout because you didn't eat enough you will loose respect. This also negatively effects your flying skills!
Go to bars and buy drinks, Plane shops to upgrade your plane and even get a girlfriend! A good relationship gives you a huge bonus and raises your efficiency in the air! (Guns do more damage etc.)
Okay sounds cool, but what's actually done?
Okay, we hate to be one of those that talk alot, but offer nothing so I'll be so fair and tell how far we are at the moment.
Basically everything that has to do with Combat is done so far. Every Plane coded, all Wingmen coded, countermeasures, you name it. Same goes for when you dont eat enough. The game will slow down your plane speed and health.
Also coded is the girlfriend and Relationship status of the player. IF he has Wingman Nr. 2 as Girlfriend for example, Missiles reload quicker and do more damage etc.
The thing thats next to be done is the story and actual life on the Base during the rounds. We begun with that yesterday and I think it's safe to say that this game is done 50+%.
But I don't want to post an even bigger wall of text than there is allready, just thougt I share some of the work we've done so far.
Plane Graphics done by wonderfull Mr. Bagera, else by us. See yas.
TL;DR VERSION: Plane Game. Shoot down Enemy Squad or destroy Base to win. Apart from flying you can run around Airforce Base and need to eat and sleep.
