GSY Video PC

After failing to raise enough funds on Kickstarter, Iron Wings is back and almost ready to ship, since it is now available on Steam. It is quite a surprise for us to see the game has been completed so soon, especially when you think all of the Kickstarted projects that have still be reach completion. Because some of you might be wary, we decided to give the game a go a few hours before its release, in order to share our impressions with you. After playing Naps Team's title for a few hours, we can say it's a pretty ambitious project for an independent studio, which usually never comes without consequences. The game's shortcomings are indeed visible, as we have experienced some severe frustration, but it doesn't mean it should be discarded completely. Explanations are inside, but the full preview is only available on the French side.
Note: Please read the update note we've added before our impressions as it could make a big difference in what we say in the article.

Naps Team is a studio composed of industry veterans who have worked with publishers like Gremlin Interactive, Atari/Infogrames, Interplay or Ubisoft. They have just launched a Kickstarter campaign for Iron Wings, a single-player air combat game set during World War II, which could also feature some multiplayer action if they manage to get enough money from backers. The project is pretty ambitious, and even though it cannot be compared to AAA titles in terms of visuals, it seems immersive and interesting enough to deserve your attention. To find out more about the game, check out the videos inside and the Kickstarter page.
