A fwooshy, intense, procedurally generated fly-em-up. Blow things up over land, sea, and air, on an infinite number of procedurally-generated islands. Go toe-to-toe with enemy aces or assault giant flying aircraft carriers, but watch out for volleys of missiles; when you die, you're dead.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game has already been available on itch.io for more than a year, so it's only natural to bring it to Early Access since it's already in that state on another store.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Hopefully before the end of 2016, or early 2017. Beta should only be a few months away. No promises, just predictions.”

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

“The game is mostly complete feature-wise, but lacks all of the aeros, weapons, enemies, biomes, etc that are planned for the full game. As of July 2015, it's not possible to actually complete the game, but the final version will have an endboss and a proper ending. Also, the gameplay and progression aren't the best they can be, so that could change drastically... for the better, of course!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game has already been available on itch.io for more than a year, where it's frequently been on the "Top Sellers" list. The game is fully playable right now, and will give you a very clear idea of how the final version will play, even though not all planned features are implemented. Many players have told us that they've already spent double-digit hours playing the game. Some games in Early Access provide very limited gameplay and aren't worth the money they cost today ... Sky Rogue is definitely not one of those games.”

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

“The game will increase roughly 50% either when the game enters Beta, or when it reaches version 1.0”

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

“There's already modding support for custom aeros (aircraft) and skins. We hope to add more support for even more parts of the game if time allows.”

Beta 1.1 Released!

This release is mainly bugfixes, but includes some changes to the endboss to reduce the ways you can kill it in a "boring but safe" way. There are probably still more ways I don't know about, please go find them. :)

CHANGES:
- Endboss is significantly harder now ... don't fly too far away

FIXES:
- Couldn't beat the boss in co-op if one player was dead
- Aerolab menu fixed in co-op
- Flak bullet collider changed so that it won't pass through objects in its initial stage
- Fixed visual glitch where a part of the endboss would weirdly follow it around
- Custom missions were still playing the old alpha music
- "P", "B", and "I" keys are no longer hardcoded for various functions
- Fixed a few building descriptions
- Fixed cash exploit when going from the carrier menu to the title menu
- Subtle AI aiming bug fixed, it was using the wrong time delta, it may be slightly more accurate now

Reviews

“It's bloody great!”
NerdCubed

“...it's a sweet little arcade shooter. It's immediately welcoming and then tougher than you'd expect...”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Speed and fury and wide open space: sat inside a Kondor - or even better, parked just behind it as it loops and snarls - air combat doesn't get much better.”
EuroGamer

A simple, fwooshy, intense action flight simulator. Blow things up over land, sea, and air, on an infinite number of procedurally-generated islands. Choose one of a diverse set of aeros and kit it out with a dizzying array of weaponry. Go toe-to-toe with enemy aces or assault giant flying aircraft carriers and battleships, but watch out for volleys of missiles; when you die, you're dead.
