Among other games, Damon Slye made A-10 Tank Killer
in 1989 (respek knuckles
) and Red Baron
right after that. Red Baron
was always his favorite. He bought a small plane, flew it up and down the West Coast, then sold it to start Mad Otter Games. This new indie outfit, working out of Eugene, Oregon, is remaking 1990's Red Baron
, and it's got a Kickstarter
to nudge things along. Damon Slye has read the historical literature, he's probably pretended to dogfight other Cessna aircraft just minding their own business, and he's got a man crush on Manfred "Red Baron" von Richtofen. I'd say he's the right guy for the job.
