On the 25th October 2010 we will be releasing our first major content patch, the “Call to Arms”. To celebrate this milestone the nice people at Steam have allowed us to put DogFighter on promo for a limited time and at a price of... £1
This promotional price does not include the £0.05 Fun Tax
That’s right. DogFighter will only ever be as good as the players that populate the server. We need players. It’s as simple as that. The vast majority of players out there feel so much more satisfaction when they know that they have just blown the crap out of some poor sod that is screaming at their monitor in frustration and due to your awesomeness.
We listen to our community. We talk with our community. We don’t always do what they say but usually we will give them a reason why we haven’t. (To be fair though we’ve done a lot hehe! – Noxy)
Yeah, it sounds like a cliché but we really are that dedicated. We aren’t going to make stacks of cash out of this update and promo. That really isn’t the point. We just want our game, a game that I really think is fun, to take off (no pun intended).
So what are you getting for your £1 (+5p fun tax)?
Here’s what we are including in our patch:
* Tutorial Mode
To ease our new players into the DogFighter universe
* Mongoose Interceptor
A new craft for those who like to move at mental speeds
* The Old Gods
The first new level for DogFighter. Its frickin’ awesome!
* Dedicated Server App
At last! The dedicated server will be made available to the public for both the full version and the demo version!
* The Usual Bug Fixes and Tweaks(Check forums on Monday for a full list!)
This is something we ALWAYS do and always stay on top of. Many thanks to the members of our community that have helped us out by reporting bugs and providing debug info. You are the best.
DogFighter is a fast paced, arcade aerial combat game with arena style gameplay values. Players can compete against up to 7 opponents in 3 multiplayer modes, or go solo in 6 single player game modes, using beefed up biplanes sporting over 20 different offensive and defensive weapons...
... and that’s just the start.
Since its launch in June, DogFighter has been updated on numerous occasions and has delivered on the promises made to our community. As well as the usual bug fixes and polish we have introduced...
* Joystick Support
* The DogFighter Demo
* Dedicated Servers
* ... and there is more to come, including free content updates.
We here at Dark Water Studios are dedicated to our game and our community. We endeavor to make community opinion part of our design philosophy and are committed to bringing DogFighter players more say in how the game develops. This is YOUR game. Help us make it great.
Get in the skies and deal lead death to your enemy using a state-of-the-art flight model that gives players unprecedented command of DogFighter’s craft. Complete control of the craft, combined with easily executed advanced manoeuvres such as the Barrel Roll, give DogFighter players the tools they need to master the skies.
With environments built to both slay and save you, the environments in DogFighter offer the player a more interactive experience than is usual for the genre. Players can enjoy piloting their craft down mining tunnels, through pyramids and active volcanoes, in environments designed to deliver a more varied, more interactive gaming experience. Fly low, fly fast!
* Take to the skies against up to 7 players in classic multiplayer game modes such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Capture the flag.
* Use several advanced server options to enable variations on the normal game modes by including the likes of Insta-Gib, Turbo Mode and Black Death.
* "Easy-to-fly" flight model with the controls you need to execute advanced manoeuvres such as Barrel Roll and Immelmann Turn.
* Beautifully created environments that are as much a player in the game as the people piloting the craft.
* With seven unique craft and over 20 different weapons and defensive measures, DogFighter caters to all game play styles.
* Online leaderboards and friend tracking.
* Steam Cloud supported.
* Includes Steam Achievements.
