Recommended Posts

Here's the press release for those of you that missed it on the front page. :D


Montreal, Quebec. October 16, 2002 – Publisher Strategy First and Developer Third Wire are pleased to announce that Strike Fighters: Project 1, the flight simulation that will have people lighting the fires under their PCs, has gone gold for a full North American release.  


“We are very excited to have this game ready for full release,” says Steve Milburn, Director of Marketing for Strategy First. “I hope that everyone in and out of the flight sim community enjoys it as much as we do.”


From Tsuyoshi Kawahito (aka TK), the legendary lead designer behind Jane’s Longbow 2 and European Air War, Strike Fighters: Project 1 is set in the 1960s, a unique decade when aviation technology was still primitive, but advancing at a rapid pace. This historical era has been overlooked by flight sims – until now! Take control of some of the most renowned aircraft of the era, including the F-4 Phantom II, considered one of the most versatile combat aircraft of all time. Along with a historical timeframe, Strike Fighters: Project 1 has a thrilling Middle Eastern setting that puts gamers high above the now controversial desert sands.


Strike Fighters: Project 1 uses an all new “next generation” graphics engine that generates incredibly detailed images that transport you directly into the cockpit. But the ride doesn’t stop there! With its mod-friendly generator, Strike Fighters: Project 1 follows in the footsteps of games like Half-Life that offer gamers endless hours of new and exciting gameplay and replayability.


Strike Fighters: Project 1 will be on retail shelves nationwide on October 29th. For more information on Strike Fighters: Project 1, please visit www.strategyfirst.com.
