Swiss developer Blindflug Studios announced that it will launch a Kickstarter campaign for a brand-new game titled Ground of Aces.
As the name hints, planes are involved, but this is a different kind of simulator compared to those that let you play the role of a pilot like Microsoft Flight Simulator. The game focuses on building and managing an airbase during World War II while taking care of the needs of your pilots and collecting all sorts of fighters and bombers from the era.
Below you can check out the announcement trailer, while the campaign will soon go live on Kickstarter, where you can sign up to be notified when it does.

Plan, build, and shape your very own World War II air base Build up and manage your personal home for your planes and your crew members. Complete freedom of how you want to build. You will plan and place every wall.
Take care of your pilots and crew Experience personal stories of your air base crew members. On your base, every person matters and has their own personality. The game takes huge inspiration of the everyday life of airplane bases in remote locations and how it felt to live there, in good and bad times.
Prepare for missions, send out pilots, and fend off attacks Engulf yourself in the Second World War and experience its battles from the perspective of your air base crew. It is your responsibility to make sure everybody is physically and mentally prepared to fulfill their duties.
Collect and manage iconic World War II aircraft Enjoy a variety of accurate fighter airplanes. A joy for aviation aficionados who know the difference between a Hurricane and a Spitfire. But consider: bigger airplanes will need bigger infrastructure. So make sure you can house some of WWII's most impressive airplanes
In the style of Franco-Belgian bande dessinée. The game is built from the ground to look like a living and breathing comic book, bringing the style of these timeless art pieces to life. From Bergèse to Hergé, the attention to detail and love for planes of the old masters is what we strive for.
