A full HD remake of Cinemaware's classic WWI Amiga game featuring never-before-seen content!

Join Wings: Remastered Edition Campaign

Colonel Farrah advises: “Beware the Hun in the Sun” (Wings’ Legacy)

“Relive the action, glory and seat of the pants daring of a WWI Allied fighter pilot! You'll strafe Hun armies, bomb enemy aerodromes and match wits against deadly Aces in heart-stopping dogfights, the loser going down in flames...without a parachute! More than just a simulator, Wings features genuine arcade action and an emotion packed role-playing experience. Wings is the easy to play air combat simulation you've been waiting for... no complicated keyboard commands. Just fly and shoot!”

It was with these words that Cinemaware’s Wings entered the annals of the videogame industry and the hearts of gamers across the globe 22 years ago. Wings was more than just an action flight sim…it truly was a personal combat experience, reflecting all the drama, emotional involvement and brutality that WWI pilots went through in their (usually short) war experience. The emotional impact that Wings’ game playing experience had on gamers has never been quite replicated in the history of the industry.

The Wings Kickstarter Campaign Made This Possible

Down with Kaiser Bill! Launch the offensive! (About the Project)

Cinemaware is bringing this unique, emotion-charged, action-packed gaming experience back to life – in full, glorious HD graphics & sound!

For that to happen, we are looking for the support of all our fans and gamers in general who want to relive this classic game once more on modern platforms!

The Wings Kickstarter Campaign Made This Possible

Cinemaware has now assembled a team of experienced developers to bring Wings back to life as Wings: Remastered Edition. The team has been responsible for over 200 games, including a number of Amiga classics, and the 2003 remake Robin Hood: Defender of the Crown. Work has begun on this project, with a five level demo to show off what we want to deliver if you support us through our Kickstarter campaign. Relive the dogfights, characters, missions, storylines of the original, and encounter the same impacting experience fans have come to fondly remember.

We’ll be posting regular updates about the progress of the project as it moves along, posting new video updates, graphic and sound developments, concept art and developer interviews. But we’re going the extra mile to make our fans and backers feel they are an important part of the process of creating a great game.

Visit the funding page to get more details on the prizes and pledge your support.

Help us get more votes by asking your gaming buddies to vote as well, spreading news of Wings in your favorite gaming forums and actively participating in the community! Getting approved on Steam Greenlight will greatly enhance the visibility and funding for this project, which benefits everyone!

 

Funding Continues, Payments

We have taken the last couple of days to rest a bit as well as organize the next steps for this project and the continuation of the funding campaign. Yes, funding has NOT stopped, and it will continue at www.cinemawarewings.com/paypal. (We are also in the process of rebuilding this site in order to improve navigation and usability). So, keep spreading the word about this project – we can achieve higher stretch goals and keep improving Wings: Remastered Edition even further!

In any event, we must thank everyone once again for coming together and helping us make this campaign a success. The great feedback and even criticism we receive, along with the funding, will only help make this game better! Let’s keep at it!


Kickstarter/Amazon Payments

There is one important reminder we’d like to bring up to everyone.

In the short term, we will be awaiting the transfer of funds from Kickstarter/Amazon. As many of you know, it can take up to two weeks to execute such transfer. However, we have had over $3,000 worth of pledges “bounced” by their respective credit cards according to Kickstarter’s report so far. This is partially normal, since many times user’s cards need verification by their owners if they do not recognize certain merchants or if a backer recently changed credit card numbers. Kickstarter will keep trying the charge for several times, after which the pledge will be cancelled.

This is where we really need everyone to pay attention and ensure their pledges did indeed go through! Please, double-check if Kickstarter/Amazon was successful in charging your card, or if you need to change your credit card info there is still time by going into your account. We cannot afford to miss out on a high number of cancellations and putting stretch goals at risk! Of course, alternatively you can always use PayPal as a way to fund your pledge by visiting www.cinemawarewings.com/paypal or simply transferring the proper amount directly to ‘payments@cinemaware.com’.

Next Steps

We had over 1,400 backers in this campaign, a 50% increase from the last campaign we ran last year, which we consider a great success. It shows the Cinemaware community is getting back together, and we strongly believe that over time this community will be represented by several thousand others who will join in and make future campaigns even stronger and bigger. We certainly will work for that to happen, but we cannot do it alone! As the initial “founding backers” of the first Cinemaware title to be funded via crowdfunding,you do have a huge, important responsibility to ensure future success: keep helping us find other potential backers for Wings, other Cinemaware fans to join this community! The stronger as a group we are, the better & bigger future games we develop will be. The funding success of Wings: RE has proven that with hard work and collaboration from fans, we can once again bring you great games. Do not forget that!

Moving on, we plan to keep sending updates regularly to keep everyone abreast of funding progress, stretch goals, add-ons, production-related matters and general Cinemaware news bits! We are also working on getting the exclusive backers’ forum up & running so that you can join in more active internal discussions and feedback as well!
