Welcome to Bomber Crew, a Real Time Strategy (RTS) game where you control a World War 2 Bomber Crew.
Developed by Runner Duck and published by Curve Digital, the game was released back in October 2017 for PC on Steam and was one of my favourite games of the year.
Whilst the graphics might be a little cartoony, rather than opting for photo-realism, I think this adds to the atmosphere. This also benefits those wishing to play on hardware that isn’t necessarily cutting-edge. Don’t let this fool you though as it more than makes up for this with its gameplay.
You will feel a real connection with the Bomber Crew that you’ve been put in charge of, will make you anxious about bringing your crew back alive and feel actual guilt if they die. Each of the characters have Procedurally-generated names, skills and back stories making you feel even more responsible for their wellbeing.
Perma-death means that you’ll need to start over if your plane crashes or if your crew dies. You will have to train your crew and upgrade your plane as the later missions become seemingly impossible.
Overall this game is for fans of real time strategies and games such as XCOM, or if you just want to fling your crew off the wings of your plane!
Bomber Crew is available on Steam now.
