I don't do flight games hardly at all, but for WiiWare? Looking this good? 700 points?? Gimme a review of 7 or better and it's comin' home.

Will be getting this for sure once its out in EU. 700 points is great for such a nice looking game!



Shiryu said:

Hopefully NOE will be quick to rate and release this over here in Euroland. =)

Woot. This is perfect, I'll have 500 points leftover after I buy this and Jett Rocket.

Must get a card now! D:

This is excellent news! I wasn't expecting the price to be this low. I will definitely be picking this one up now. Hopefully the low price point will translate into financial success for this game. I'm pulling for you guys at Legendo.



eripmav said:

Thank you guys, we really appreciate the kind comments.

Put it this way, we asked your opinions on pricing, we listened and we did our damndest to get it! I personally am so pumped that the game's nearly upon us, it seems like an eternity since I first came on here!

Regarding the EU release, we're still waiting confirmation for both the date and pricing from NOE.

You totally deserve a raise; i know i and plenty of others on this site will be picking up this game in part because of all the excellent info you've shared with us throughout the development!

And 700 points is perfect -- if it were 1000, i'd probably think about it or put it off, but 700 is just right. =)



eripmav said:

@the shpydar you're too kind. I do what I do out of love of gaming and respect to both Legendo and my boss, Bjorn. Fingers crossed it'll be loved! Also, there's not many PR folk that visit forums etc at 00:15 to say hi or update the threads on their games:)

The price point was something that both the fans on here and we were extremly passionate about and we felt strongly that the right price was 700.



Philip_J_Reed said:

Definitely looking forward to this. For that price I can't imagine it not being worth a shot. I may wait to hear some feedback on the controls first, though...that's an easy deal-breaker with flight games.



Omega said:

Looks good for what it is, but not my "cup of tea". Hope Legendo are making something different soon.



EdEN said:

700 for the game is a very reasonable price, specially if the other two episodes are the same price. What I don't know is if you have to get the first one to get the other two or if they're separate releasesl..



eripmav said:

Cheers CB, controls were something we were paramount about getting right.

@Omega, we're old hats in the flying genre, having developed them for PC in the past, so it's a welcome return to the genre. We do have other games up our sleeves but as always, it's all down to how Pearl sells.

@EdEN, All eps are self contained, therefore you don't need to own them all.

@Fuzzy Thank you:)



Scottie said:

This looks good, normally i would steer clear of these type of games as i am rubbish at them but this seems worth a shot! (pardon the pun lol!!) Is it easy to pick up and play and what is the overall difficulty like?



Philip_J_Reed said:

Glad to hear it, Reverse Vampire. Looking forward to this. Since I have a lo(ooooo)ong weekend, you might be getting a day one buy out of me.



eripmav said:

Thanks guys.

@Scottie one thing we've always insisted upon since we started the development of Pearl is that ANYONE can pick up and play it.

@CB MIGHT!? I expect you to buy the WiiShop dry!



Beto832 said:

im totally getting this game!! I have a question for yall? When is worms gonna come out?



Rogues said:

This game has had WII points set aside for the last two months! I can't wait until Monday! The screenshots and video make this look like an amazing game and a must have for fans of WWII flight sims.



eripmav said:

Thanks Rogues, it's fantastic to know that people are actually setting points aside for Pearl!
