What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“To get early feedback and refine the gameplay, add more enemy types and variety to the campaign, add more player aircrafts.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“About 6 months.”

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

“The plan is to add more player aircrafts and focus on the campaign: add more enemy types and more variety to the missions.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core gameplay is pretty much complete, each day the campaign is randomized and you can have fun competing on the leaderboards. Its only a bit thin on content: 3 player aircrafts + 4 enemy types.”

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

“It is possible the price will increase a bit when leaving Early Access.”

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

“By reading your feedback here on the steam forums, I'm always checking them out. Player feedback is essential to make a well balanced game and to know whether to shift priorities or not, I will try to do my best to incorporate it within the game vision.”

v0.74

  • Fixed game-breaking bug: the game could freeze on the mission recap screen.
  • Testing new scoring.
  • Valkyries nerfed a bit.

So, what is this new scoring about?
Accuracy is no longer a major factor but it is added as a bonus at the end, along with the time bonus. Not sure how this will play out but usually simpler things works best. Lets try this.

I've also been working on something more substantial but had to rush this update because of that bug, hopefully next update.

Thats it, see you on the leaderboards!

v0.73

  • Target locking improved: less jumping around.
  • General gameplay tweaking.
  • Falcon-C tweaking: easier aiming but less extra time on kill.
  • Some polishing here and there.

It's not the content patch I was planning for but I'd like to tackle some of the balancing issues we've been discussing on the forums lately.

So, each player aircraft has its own 'extra time on kill' now: the Falcon has the most (13 sec), the Falcon-C the least (7 sec) and the Falcon-M stays at 10 sec. Plus, you get the 'time bonus' on any mission outcome, not only on completion.

There's also a better steam input default config, if you are using it you might have to re-apply it.

That's it, let me know what you think!

About This Game

IN A NUTSHELL

  • Easy to pick up. All you need is the mouse or a single stick with two buttons.
  • Daily mini-campaign. Each day missions are a bit different than the last.
  • Multiple aircrafts to unlock.
  • Arcade action. Score as much as you can, compete on the leaderboards.
  • Quick to get into action. No deep story or cutscenes to suffer through, just dogfights.
  • Quick installation. Minimum requirements but vibrant visuals.

CONTROLLER SUPPORT

The game works well with the mouse. XBox controllers are supported out of the box. Other controllers are supported using Steam Input, check out 👉 this guide for more info and if you wish to rebind the controls (there is NO rebinding in game).

DEVELOPER'S NOTE

As you can probably tell from this and my previous game, Furious Angels, I like flying things. I also like to make arcade-like games that are easy to pick up and gets you right into action with just a few keystrokes.

It is also hard to find a flight sim where dogfights are as fun as watching a Su-35 doing a cobra or watching the movie Stealth.

And that is what I'm trying to do with AFTERBURN: super quick arcade air combat. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
