Project Wingman is an indie arcade-style combat flight action game developed by Australian studio Sector D2 and published by Humble Games. It was released on December 1, 2020 on Microsoft Windows. Project Wingman is a flight action game that lets you take the seat of advanced fighter jets and become a true ace. The game features two game modes: campaign and conquest. Campaign mode follows the story of the war set on alternate Earth between the Cascadian Republic and Pacific Federation through a silent protagonist named Monarch, a mercenary pilot. Conquest mode has the player conquer Cascadia in rogue-like game mode by conquering territories, buying new planes, and recruiting allies. Fight in various missions and gamemodes ranging from intense aerial dogfights to large scale ground assault in an alternate scorched earth setting.
The gameplay of Project Wingman is mostly inspired by the Ace Combat series of games, in which the player can choose among several fighters to participate in battles against air, naval and ground targets. Most aircraft are based on real-life models, with their names and designs slightly altered to prevent copyright infringement. The game also supports virtual reality and hands on throttle-and-stick (HOTAS).Project Wingman is a combat flight action game with an emphasis on polished and refined gameplay, true-to-its-roots inspirations, and an engaging single player experience. Perfect for those who aren’t looking for a simulator experience, with the ease of pick up and play, all the way to those who want a fast-paced challenging flight action game.
Exotic weaponries such as railguns and geothermal-powered armaments will be ready to pluck you out of the sky if you’re careless. Dogfight, strike, and fly through combat zones based off an alternate history of Earth. Either over the cold waters of the Bering Strait, attacking tanks in the brutal environments of Yellowstone magma fields, or diving through the Redwoods to strike targets of opportunity in the Pacific Northwest, across the oceans, above the scarred lands of the world, this war will take you from exotic battlefield to exotic battlefield, all while going up against odds way above your pay grade. Whether you are an attack aircraft pilot, skimming the ground with a gatling gun and rocket launchers attached to your wing, or an interceptor with long range, almost sniper-like missiles at your disposal, it will be up to you to prove yourself as an Ace pilot.
