Born out of a weekend trying to make a 3D clone of MidWay's Classic 2D
Shoot-em-up 1943, Cloud Rangers is an all-action-limited-story shooter,
where players battle across the skies of an alternate world called
In the world of Eriel, there is no land. People live of
floating masses known as Atols. You join ace mercenary pilot Barrington
Hawkfeather and his gunner Marmaduke Haypenny-Smyth on their quest
against the Iron Fist Federation, who's regime threatens to take over
the entire Northern Hemisphere! Your employer - the Northern Coalition -
pays you for every IFF vessel destroyed. Use this money to upgrade your
plane, buy bigger guns, and hire team mates, as you battle bigger,
badder and more ..uh.. shooty enemies!
Cloud Rangers tries to
capture the feeling of Old WW1 footage, with rickety camera work and
washed out sepia fesnels over the lens.
Right now it's early
days, and with other projects and real life on the go too, Cloud Rangers
is a slow burner... it should see the light of demo in a few months.
Until then, keep your eyes peeled here for update videos... and here are some screenies to whet your appetite...
