Imagine a world where the villages of humans were scattered along mountaintops, and the world below was completely blocked off by an impassible wall of clouds. In a world like that, advancements in air travel would precede both land and sea. This is the kind of world that Aero Empire is set in.

In this world, the player can rise through the ranks, from a lowly gunner manning a turret aboard an airship to the commander of several airships, ordering the crew of your own airship and the captains of the airships in your squad.

Aero Empire is a cross-genre game, incorporating elements of role-playing games, shooters, flight simulators, and squad combat. Production on the game started November 25th, 2008, and is scheduled to release by the end of 2010, and a potential sequel focusing on nation management may come later. The single player version will be free to download and play, with no restrictions.

If you have any questions about the project, feel free to contact me, or stop by our IRC channel at #AeroEmpire@irc.dal.net.

Hey Everyone! I've been quiet for a while, making smaller flash game projects and experimenting with ideas after Aero Empire fell apart, but I have recently started three things that I would like to share with everyone.

Fancy Fish Games - Following the recent success of some of my small flash game projects, I have decided to start a small, indie game studio called Fancy Fish Games. In the studio, I plan to catch some fancy ideas and make some interesting game projects. We already have a few projects planned, and two in the works, and I look forward to presenting them to the community soon.
VIDE - VIDE stands for the Vectorized Image Deformation Engine, and is a new tool I'm working on for future game projects at Fancy Fish Games. Like the name suggests, it's an animation program that can take an image and deform/animate it. The early results look nice, and it is written entirely in HAXE/NME.
The Legend of GameDev - My new indie game dev blog, which you can read here: Davidmaletz.blogspot.com. I have already written two posts detailing how VIDE works, and plan to talk more about my future game projects and Fancy Fish Games.

I also have plans and a new design document for a revival of Aero Empire, but I don't want to get anyone's hopes up while I still haven't solidified it or started working on it. Feel free to follow my blog for updates on that, as well as the current technology and games of Fancy Fish Games!

I hope there will be some action, too :)

Action is definitely planned - this is a game after all :P . There are many weapons which are equipable on different kinds of blimps (like turrets, cannons, torpedoes and gyros [gyros are like planes and helicopters]) - and these weapons can be controlled by an NPC or player.

Once the game logic engine is well under way, I will have gameplay shots and videos with plenty of action, and perhaps even a prototype download.

Thanks guys!

The game is still a while from completion - but the rendering engine is done which turned out quite well. I'll keep you guys posted for when we have some gameplay shots and more progress.
