Halloween Update Patch Notes

Here’s what’s new:
  • ‘Slow Time’ - Hold Ctrl
    We think this is a good compromise for the players who like their action a little less intense at times, while retaining the urgency of the situations crews found themselves in.

    By holding ‘Ctrl’, time will slow, allowing more breathing space for quick decisions. A small bar in the top left of the screen will show how much longer time can be slowed for. Once the bar runs out, it will fill again over a short period. The Slow Time feature can be used even when the bar is not fully filled.

    For those of you who are hardcore #nopause advocates, a bonus is rewarded at the end of each mission if you do not use the Slow Time ability. And if you really dislike it, it can be switched off entirely in the options menu.

  • ‘Quick Peek’ - Hold Shift
    Quickly move the camera to view inside the bomber! This was in the previous release, but somewhat hidden. Especially powerful when used along with ‘Slow Time’!

  • Camera control keys - ‘W, S, A & D’
    The camera can now be zoomed in/out with the W/S keys, and moved left and right with A/D.
    This is especially useful in ‘Quick Peek’ mode!

  • Hot Keys!
    We’ve added a few hotkeys to make some trickier actions a little more straightforward in the heat of battle!

    Hot Key: Reload Ammo - ‘R’
    Select a crewmember and hit the ‘R’ key - they will immediately head to the ammo box and grab a fresh belt. If they were manning a turret when the command was issued, they will return to it and reload!

    Hot Key: Heal at Rest Bed - ‘F’
    Select a crewmember and hit the ‘F’ key - they will head to the Rest Bed to regain some health.

    Hot Key: Go to Pilot Station - ‘P’
    Ever get that sinking feeling during a sortie? It’s probably because your pilot has wandered off!
    Now you can simply select a crewmember and hit the ‘P’ key - they will go straight to the pilot’s station and grab the steering yoke!

  • Difficulty Balancing
    We have made some changes to difficulty based on your feedback.
    Later in the game, you’ll now receive higher level recruits and replacement bombers featuring better upgrades.

  • Improved Options
    Volume for music and effects can be independently adjusted.
    You can now flip the camera’s Y axis in the options menu.

    The controls options have now been moved to the pause menu’s ‘Options’ page.

  • Happy Halloween!
    We’ve included a few free special livery items for you to celebrate!

  • Various bug fixes and improvements
    We’ve chased down many bugs, fixed a bunch and *think* we’ve fixed a few more.
    We’ll try to address specific issues in the forums. Please do keep reporting anything you happen to find, we very much appreciate it!
    We’ve also made various improvements, such as speeding up the crew survival wheel at the end of the missions.
That’s all in this first update! Please keep the feedback and suggestions coming, we are listening!

Bomber Crew - Halloween Update

Hello everyone!

OK, straight to the most important stuff - Jon and myself have been working non-stop on a Bomber Crew update, and it's available now!

Brew a pot of tea, butter your crumpets, sit back and check out the new features in Flakfire's guide.

We’d like to say thank you to everyone who has helped make Bomber Crew such a great success. Your messages of appreciation, criticism and suggestions have been invaluable to us, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Please keep sharing your opinions, your heart-wrenching war stories, and especially the pictures of your bombers, they’re incredible!

Dave & Jon.

About This Game

Prepare your crew for their most dangerous mission yet and go chocks away for a sky-bound expedition in this strategic survival sim, Bomber Crew.

Choose your Crew!
Train and personalise your own Bomber Crew. Procedurally-generated names, skills and back stories means a unique experience for everyone, but be careful, as death is permanent.




Immersive flight simulation!
Carefully manage everything from fuel, ammo, hydraulics and more in your very own physics-based Bomber. Make it yours with a wide array of nose art and liveries, or design your own with the simple to use in-game tool.




Fast paced strategy!
Each mission is a high-risk expedition where danger comes from every angle. Enemy fighters, flak guns, poor weather, low oxygen and an array of other perilous dangers await when the wheels are up.




Be prepared!
Preparation is key for a successful mission. Tag enemy fighters before they reach you, make sure your destination is marked but most importantly, make sure you have the right team for the job. On a WW2 bomber, every role is essential for victory!
