A Fond Farewell (For Now)

Happy Holiday's everybody from everyone here at A Maniacal Game. It's unfortunate for us to make this announcement but our responsibility to do so. We're halting all development for Screaming Eagles as well as any future projects for the foreseeable future. We'll continue to support our game if issues and bugs appear or are reported by users. But the development of new features or the expected multiplayer feature is indefinitely halted.

It's not a financial reason, we've talked amongst the development staff to include a client-based multiplayer feature which would help us to avoid the costs of a dedicated server. The reason is more to do with the number of players that have the game. Less than one hundred people have purchased the game and it doesn't exactly warrant the amount of time necessary to devote to the finalization of the multiplayer feature.

We take responsibilities for our failures as a developer. We spent six years making Screaming Eagles and plenty of us just wanted it to be done and out on the market. We wanted to do it right, make sure it was complete to a deliverable point. We debated at what price point we should put on the game considering what we wanted to deliver and by a vote we sold it at the price most of you bought it at. But we should have sold it at a lower price and then offer the multiplayer feature as DLC given the number of units sold. By the time we saw where things were headed, it was too late to change the standard price until now.

If I could refund the partial amount back to the players that bought it already at the initial price, I honestly would. I never got into game development to screw players over, or even to make money. You're probably rolling your eyes as you read this, but I fervently believe if you create a game that is engaging, entertaining, immersive or innovative in some sort of way and as fun as it can be for you, it should sell no matter what. We're not businessmen/women, we're game developers and we made a bad business decision.

We're sorry that we didn't have enough foresight to think about the consequences of these actions. If we ever make another game under this studio, we'll strive to be better at this. But for now, we're calling it quits.

We hope you all have a lovely holiday with family and friends. least for now.

About This Game


Linear Story Progression: Choose between 4 characters, that utilize varying styles of attack and destruction. In a last ditch struggle against an encroaching enemy, Red Eye, the Private Military Company led by the proud Charles Redrum.

Classic Arcade: The visual style, gameplay mechanics, and user interface were designed with arcade games in mind, but every asset is hand drawn or 3D
modeled prior to rendering for HD captures and displays.

Bullet-Hell: The threat of millions of enemy projectiles flying towards you at various speeds and patterns, with the empowerment of various upgrades to
counter-attack and survive.

Exploration: Facing the threat head-on isn't always the option, so the landscapes are opened up to avoid the immediate threat, to carve out your own
adventure, to locate the 18 hidden defense contracts and eventually unlock the mysterious 5th pilot.

In a world where fundamental terrorist plots have been wiped out by Private Military Companies and power lays at the hands of the few, governments around the world become financially and forcefully invaded by corporate moguls holding the military strings. Red Eye, one of the most powerful of the Private Military Companies begins their ruthless invasion of the UN. In response, the last of the free nations of the world band together with the strike force known as Screaming Eagles.

Pilot: Rico 'Boomer' Sanchez Airplane Model: Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II
Attack G/M: 5/2 Bomb: Napalm Strike Passive: Hardened Armor (2x Health)

Pilot: Davis 'Hardcore' O'Neil Airplane Model: Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor
Attack G/M: 3/4 Bomb: JDAM Passive: Swift Flight (2x Movement Speed)

Pilot: Dorothy 'Switch' Weber Airplane Model: Eurofighter Typhoon
Attack G/M: 4/3 Bomb: EMP Passive: Electronic Countermeasure (Boss Health Bar)

Pilot: Leon 'Sage' Molchanov Airplane Model: Sukhoi Su-47 Berkut
Attack G/M: 2/5 Bomb: Thermobaric Bomb Passive: Armored Piercing Bullets (2x ATK)

Players will experience largely scaled conflict as they can freely fly over the multiple landscapes fit for exploring or evading. Track down the Red Eye corporation and the evil plans they have for the remaining free nations of the world. Hectic gameplay will be the norm as players try to avoid thousands of enemies and projectiles while boasting their own unique attacks and abilities that will scar the environment.

At the end of each of the 7 playable levels will be a massive vehicle, based in reality or completely fantastic in nature that will either heavily saturate the playing field with enemy fire, or by stages will get increasingly difficult to the player.

With all your might, reflexes and courage, take the battle to Charlie and his evil agenda. Score the highest on the leaderboards for score and kills for the right to call yourself the greatest Ace alive.
