About this project

 

  ITALIANO (Italian translation)

 

We are Fabio Capone and Domenico Barba, founders of Naps Team an independent development studio based in Italy, and  we are leading the project Iron Wings.

Since 1993, we have delivered some of the most successful Beat 'em up games for Amiga (Shadow Fighter) and Psx (Gekido) but we also love flight games.

Moreover, until now, we have delivered 45 titles for most of the main mobile devices, consoles and home computers (Amiga, Pc, Psx, Psp, Ps2, iOS, Android, Wii,Xbox 360) and for some of the main publishers (Gremlin Interactive, Atari/Infogrames, Interplay, Ubisoft ) through our 20+ years’ experience as a Team.

We have always been independent and always focused on making games for the audience always thinking, that first, we are players.

 

 

 

Iron Wings is a single-player, intense action adventure air combat experience for PC and may include XBox One and Ps4 versions if we reach the necessary funds.

Multiplayer is a very important aspect of flying shooter games and is an ambitious goal we would love to achieve, but it must be done properly. We plan to have a stretch goal for you that will allow us to build fun and solid multiplayer modes.  

We are developing Iron Wings to run smoothly on average gaming PC and next-gen consoles. If you have a PC, hardware-wise similar to Xbox One or PS4, you should be able to run Iron Wings well as we are using internal technology that runs smoothly on both PS4 and Xbox One, as well as on Windows PC. 

In Iron Wings player takes on the role of the two pilots, Jack and Amelia, as they attempt to take down Nazi aerial menace across a rich campaign of missions, each with numerous objectives and enemies as well as side objectives. While fast paced action goes you will also have to consider some strategy, assigning your partner primary objectives to shoot down, in order to succeed. 

Iron Wings is primarily an arcade game, a flying shooter, where shooting won't be enough, where each weapon or tool mounted on each of the two planes will have its role on completing each mission, and you'll have to deal with the decision on what to do and how to do it.

During flight, you will control both pilots and their plane, switching between them anytime you need, and assigning orders to the other one. Each of the two planes you will pick will carry different extra tools to be used during the mission.

Extra tools as Chaffs and Magnetron as radar countermeasures, Photo Camera to report detailed visuals of some objectives, Search Light to discover and focus targets on night scenarios and more to discover.

Wise choice of camouflages will also influence your visibility to enemies, and consequentially will help you avoid some damages.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Because we love Flight Games and there has not been a World War II based high quality arcade shooter for years our goal with Iron Wings is to deliver the most intense experience flying through the real World War II sky battles.

But our goal isn't just about this, it's about fully realizing something which players would love for its characters, for its story, for its mechanics and gameplay, something so brand new to really let you feel the war on your wings.

 

We were able to self-fund the Game to its advanced state. Now with your support Iron Wings can become so much more.

Iron Wings is in development for PC in English and will be delivered in digital format through respective stores.

The game will also be made available in Italian, German, French, and Spanish (with localized text, and audio subtitles).

Other platforms and languages may be announced at a later stage.

Iron Wings is expected to launch around Q4 2017.

 

 

Iron Wings follows the story of two childhood friends who join the war in a special air force squadron. Under the guidance of Colonel David Ruse, their objective is to locate and stop the general Adler ahead of the 'Ahnenerbe', a secret team of Nazi archaeologists and scientists. 

Game starts during a fund raising in NY and rapidly moving into war operations with the Operation Husky (the invasion of Sicily) following the real events in the search for Adler.

Pilots will face aerial and ground missions from NY, rebuilt in deep detail as in the ‘40s, and other USA locations as Black Canyon, to many of the real battlefields along Europe, from Sicily to Naples passing through Poland and Germany.

 

Every member of the Naps Team has shipped big and bestseller titles through 2 decades going over so many challenges and trials of game development building their skills and know how. In addition, here we are now, with an incredible flight arcade game and we have gotten this quite far with our personal investment, and help of few investors.

That is why you are not asked contributing for the entire thing as we have already put so much in.

Even working on our own with our self-funding we have been able to do a lot of work, as you can easily see, not just concept art, cinematic trailers, or cg prototypes.

What we can show is an extensive footage of actual game play.

Even if the means are limited, we are confident that, we will be able to deliver the most amazing experience we can.

We also believe that by reaching true flying games fans and hitting through some stretch goals, we can take the game even further to its best. 

 

Apart from all digital rewards we’ve created we would like to say that being us an independent studio and being also behind fulfillment of physical rewards we've preferred to focus on just few of them, but valuable, in order to concentrate most of our efforts and capital on the game development with the only goal to make Iron Wings the best game we can!

Physical rewards will be finalized between the end of the funding campaign and the game’s delivery date. We will try to ensure that all digital content will be sent to every backer as soon as possible after the funding date. In regards to physical rewards, again, we will get these to our backers as soon as possible.

We’ll let everyone know when to expect them via our updates.

While we are developing Iron Wings on PC, we definitely want to bring the game to other platforms. On closed platforms, we need to deal with the platform holders and we cannot prejudge their decision. In an ideal world, we would release the game on all platforms at the same time. Realistically we can offer you PC version in all tiers. From the “Master Sergeant” tier above, you will be able to choose our game on any platform you wish from those mentioned above (i.e. Windows PC / Xbox One / PS4), with the proviso that on consoles the game must be approved by the platform holders first. In case we are not able to finish or release the game on the platform you chose, for any reason, you would be able to choose again from available platforms.

We have some exciting stretch goals planned, and we will be revealing these in a future updates when we get closer to each goal. Real flight games fans are going to be quite pleased with what we have planned and rookie pilots will have more reasons to stay!

 

Risks and challenges

We are aiming for nothing less than an AAA game experience with an epic story-based game with pure adrenaline gameplay.
While we have delivered up to 45 titles always meeting publishers schedules one fact is that game development is not without risk, though.
Completing Iron Wings with all the prearranged goals and for all the planned platforms will take some reasonable time and small game development issues can always occur.
However, by leaning on our experience we will do whatever we must to deliver the most incredible game experience we can to our backers and make good on our promise rewarding your support.

Entertain players is our mission for over 20 years! So let us do it once again, together!
