Pilots of the Dawn - Airplane Dogfight Game

Hello,

I and my two friends have been working with a game called Pilots of the Dawn for about 9 months now. The game is about to be ready quite soon, so I thought it might be good to share some screenshots here and get some opinions

Game is inspired by other classics of the same genre like Triplane Turmoil and Luftrausers. Pilots of the Dawn contains two game modes: endless and campaign. At the moment it has thirty challenging missions and on top of that random daily missions. All feedback is welcome!

Thanks!
-Jari (Developer)

Cool, we will have our own Luftrausers!
Nice Pixels and I hope it's a paid app.

You had me at luftrausers I played and once in a while still play the hell out of that game on steam.

I can't wait. I'm in. I already like the controls. I can see the left and right turn buttons. That should work out just fine!

Actually it's going to be a free game, but we don't force any ads or anything. Players may watch ads if they want to progress a little bit faster

Beta gameplay video

Hello again guys!

Things have proceeded well and I'd like to show you some gameplay footage of the endless game mode. Endless mode is one of the three game modes in the game

Video doesn't have audio, because we haven't licensed our music yet. There are also debug numbers on the bottom left corner, but don't let them disturb you

What you guys think? Any suggestions or ideas?

This looks really fun already! Thanks for sharing (and caring).

Not sure if you guys still develop new features or just polishing up. But I do have some suggestions if you're interested. Maby for some more uniqueness (if that's a word!). Missions like protecting bomber runs? Or landing/launching from carriers. Not too simulator thingy, but just as a little intro animation of some sort. I dunno. Just random thoughts ^^ Good luck developing anyway!

Hi fabianb, and thanks for ideas!

We actually have 5 types of missions in the game and one of them is "Protect ally plane" -mission :-) We won't add new features to the first version anymore, but polishing will still happen. Even though we have many ideas to the updates.
