Wild Wings delivers the fast-paced, action packed aerial combat you’ve been missing! We’re taking off on a host of platforms; Ouya, PC, Mac, iOS and Android, and we want you in our squadron!

Wild Wings is a celebration of military aviation! Inspired by Hank Caruso’s characterful Aerocatures, we’re creating a game packed with fun that rekindles the elbow-to-elbow mayhem of classic arcade flyers like ‘StarFox 64’, ‘Crimson Skies’, and ‘Rogue Squadron’ that you can play anywhere! 

Wild Wings’ focus on accessible aerial combat is definitely a throwback. This is a game focused on fun and the fun of playing together. Beyond the game we want to introduce the awesome tradition of military aviation to a new generation of players in a way that isn’t about glorifying war. Wild Wings is a ‘Looney-Tunes’ style rumble that is easy to dive right into and fun for gamers of all experience levels. 

We have a solid prototype, a target features list, and sleek design ready to go.  But there's still a lot of work to do which is why we need your support!  Here's the breakdown of what steps are next:

Expand Prototype and Finalize Plane Designs: We need to complete the remaining 5 planes that haven't been built, setup our customization menus, and fine-tune the combat numbers.

Multiplayer Setup: We'll connect our prototype to cloud-based instanced multiplayer servers that will let you play cross-platform with your friends.

Account Management Back-end: Next we'll tie everything into our cross-platform back-end that will keep track of your planes, your victories, what paintjobs you're flying with... all the good stuff.  

Art and Sound: In addition to the remaining planes we'll also build heavily optimized levels to fight over and create more music and sound fx to bring the Aerocatures to life.

In addition to prototyping the game, we've created some incredible rewards you can receive for backing this project and helping us make Wild Wings a reality! We have exclusive in-game rewards!  3D printed models of the outrageous Aerocatures planes! Calendars and Prints with Hank’s wonderful art!  And even behind-the-scenes access to Warriors Aviation Air Shows and a ride in a L-39 Jet! 

“We’re thrilled to see Wild Wings introducing the history of military aviation to a new generation!” – Warrior Aviation 

We are participating in OUYA's #FreeTheGames Fund, created by OUYA to support developers making new and creative console games. OUYA will match your pledge dollar-for-dollar up to the goal amount (and a max of $250,000), so help us get Wild Wings funded and be a great game for everyone! To be eligible for this match, we commit that this game will be an OUYA exclusive for a period of time. Get the whole scoop in this Update!

Risks and challenges

Creating a game is hard work. Creating a cross-platform multiplayer game is a huge undertaking. Fortunately, I’ve done it before. I worked with an awesome team to create an action-packed cross-platform moba that we had live and running in just eight months! Wild Wings by comparison is an intimate project we can launch this year!

We have a development plan laid out and experienced teammates lined up to help us finish the game. The design is lean and accessible, focused on fun action not bloated progression and complicated account management. Our experience creating live service games and cloud-based multiplayer makes expanding our prototype very straightforward. Wild Wings’ creation isn’t a gamble, I won’t kid you and say ‘it will be easy’ but we aren’t flying blind.

Our rewards are known quantities that we have exact costs and delivery estimates for, and even a lot of the content produced. If our funding succeeds you will be getting your rewards.

The Wild Wings Kickstarter is a chance for us to come together and create a great new game! We have an excellent crew lined up and with your help we’ll meet in the skies soon!
