The Irregular Corporation, the developer & publisher behind PC Building Simulator, has announced Deadstick - Bush Flight Simulator according to a news post on the game's Steam Community page.
Deadstick - Bush Flight Simulator has players taking on the role of a bush pilot, a unique breed of aviator that is tasked with delivering supplies to locations that are often deep in the wilderness and lacking silly little things like paved runways. Bush pilots need to know how to navigate bad weather and then land their plane in a field that's about three times shorter than you'd like, turn around, and safely take off again before the weather gets even worse. A trailer was released alongside the announcement which should give you a feel for the game with its Pre-Alpha footage:
Originally announced at FlightSim2017 (a real-world event in the UK for dedicated fans of the flight simulator genre), Deadstick - Bush Flight Simulator has revealed some new in-engine footage today. This game will definitely lean towards the harder end of flight simulators - every dial and gauge in the cockpit will be functional. Players must maintain their plane and load cargo on the ground before taking off, and flying through the air won't always be the easiest thing to do thanks to a dynamic weather system that can take a bad turn at any moment.
Players will be able to explore a fictional landscape that's based on a combination of Alaska and Idaho as they deliver cargo to people living in areas far from the rest of civilization. You can take your earnings and invest them into upgrades for your plane. A fully-featured Sandbox Bush Pilot career mode promises loads of fun for flight simulator fans looking for something a little different.
If this sounds like your kind of game, you can head on over to the game's Steam Store page and add it to your wishlist right now. Deadstick - Bush Flight Simulator is set to release exclusively for PC sometime in late 2018.
