What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“BOMB single player mode is complete and fully enjoyable, but we took the decision to release the game in early access to improve the multiplayer mode and the balancing of aircrafts, along with fixing some unexpected bugs.”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are expecting an early access period of 3 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“More contents, like more maps, more skins, more cockpits. We have not yet decided if the modding tools will come at the same time as the final version or a bit later.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is complete and almost bug-free, but still need some polish.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“There is a 25% discount during the early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are open to all kind of suggestion to make the game better, as we already do, as soon as they do not involve a major modification of the game spirit.”

Update Mk IIIi

Hi,

This time we won't write a laconic change log about what has been done in the patch, but rather explain more precisely what has been fixed and what we are working on.

The fixes:

  • We've made a few changes recently both to optimize memory consumption of the game and to make the game runs on Linux. Although the Linux version is not available right now, its development impacts the Windows version as most of the code and resources are common.

    Because of that the last patch (Mk IIIh) had some issues with the ocean and trees rendering when restarting a mission, this is now fixed.

  • We've also fixed a problem with the Track-Ir when the track-clip was out of the captor's sight.
The improvements:
  • According to some feedbacks, we've added a little black outline on some of the HUD elements to make them more visible.

  • Another commonly asked feature is checkpoints. The previous patch added one checkpoints in most of missions, which avoids the introduction phases when restarting the mission after a game-over.

  • For the few and lucky players having a triple-monitor setup, we've also added a new option, named HUD width, allowing you to slightly change the HUD horizontal position, which may be necessary if the screens don't have the same resolution settings. This option is not really ergonomic yet and we are looking for better ways to do it, but it should do the job.


We are also aware some people want to try the multi-player, and as there is unfortunately not enough players worldwide yet, we are looking for a way to organize some kind of event to make them meet.
As the multi-player mode stress-testing is also a reason for why we are releasing the game in early access, we really need it to be played :)

Finally, as the game is becoming more and stable, we will release updates less frequently, allowing us to make deeper and cleaner changes to improve the game. But don't be afraid, in case of major troubles we'll do a patch as soon as possible, otherwise we'll keep the rate of one update a week.

A really cool game !
I missed the feeling of a good flight fight for a long time.
For people liking airplanes games i think its a must have.
The game is really nice with his own style, a special mention to the sea wich is beautiful.
The solo campaign is quite good (i laughed a few times on some jokes) and the multi really upgrade the potential of the game. Even the "escarmouche" mode with AI (wich is pretty good) is interesting and challenging !
With the promise opening of modding i can't see why this game wouldn't be a sucess especially if people start making new content (more planes, more weapons, more everything).
That's it, i'll go see "Marcel" for new adventures !

BOMB is bound to get more and more popular.

The developers have been listening to suggestions in the duscution thread scince the first day and many improvements have been made thanks to that.

If you are looking for an old-school style aircraft game with humour, old-style planes, challenging dogfights and various missions, this is for you !

This game is absolutely fantastic. The gameplay, graphics, and artisitic stylization are unmatched in any early access game I have seen. This game is going in the right direction, and I hope for the best.

As of Mk IIIb:
Like arcadey flight sims? Have a gamepad or joystick/hotas? Loved Crimson Skies?
Than most likely you're gonna like BOMB.
Nice graphics, amusing storyline, cool art- and overall game- style, pretty good AI.
Controls are not as tight as they were in crimson skies though, that needs some work.
Plus, only one difficulty level for campaign (and not the easiest one) is quite tough (at least for someone like me who sucks using joysticks xD).
Other than that - pretty damn good flight combat sim!

The game is exelent , cool planes, nice graphics, nice hit-box (if you hit an enemy plane he will be damaged no just sparks flying) . but one thing, the controls are ♥♥♥♥ty, you need an joystick or you will suck.
8/10 : want mouse aim control, and more planes.

Early Access Review
Just picked up a copy.. and loving it. It's very reminiscent of Crimson Skies in its inspiration (my first thought was Crimson Skies meets Porco Rosso) and the flight model feels similar to CS in that it's jump in and fly rather than a sit your PPL first simulation.

As has been noted.. the dialogue (English version) could do with some loving, but other than that, it's rather fun. Interested to see just how it develops.. :)

Liking it so far. Better integration of gamepads would be nice, controls are a bit shaky in its current state. [EDIT: Experiment with deadzone settings for analogue controllers to address this]
Nice graphics and everything, would recommend.
The written dialogue is also ropey but who really cares in a flying game
