Crimson Skiesv1.0 Description:
Big guns… fast planes… gorgeous dames... In this alternate history, the year is 1937 and the United States is fractured into squabbling nation-states, brought about by the weight of the Great Depression, regional prohibition, and mounting isolationism. Giant zeppelins crisscross the skies carrying both passengers and cargo, and airborne bandits are a constant threat. It is a time of gunship diplomacy and airship piracy. It is the age of the fighter pilot and a time of daredevil adventure and sinister intrigue. It is the world of Crimson Skies…
As the handsome and daring air pirate Nathan Zachary, you'll lead your squadron of privateers, the Fortune Hunters, in thrilling ground-level missions. Snatch famed scientists out of lumbering zeppelins, steal secret prototypes, or barrel roll as you down the enemy. Fly everything from the nitrogen-charged Whitley and Douglas Raven bomber to the buzzing and whirring air gyro to the latest Hughes Aircraft prototypes. Along the way romance a bevy of dangerous femme fatales, but be warned-- these beauties can turn on you faster than a Fairchild in a terminal tailspin.
Crimson Skies captures the true spirit of combat flying with an intuitive flying system, which will let you command the air with ease. The focus is on the art of dogfighting not the science of flying. Swoop and soar in eleven exotic and specially fitted fighting planes. Choose your planes and outfit them with the latest in 1937 high-tech aerial wizardry from 50 caliber machine guns to nitro boosts and flash rockets. Crimson Skies puts you in the cockpit for thrilling dogfights and aerial adventure.
