There's a post on the RB forums indicating that Mad Otter is still looking for financial backing before going forward. Until that happens, it's all smoke and mirrors.

Wish I was further ahead in my business ventures to send an investment in your direction. I thoroughly enjoyed the first Red Baron on my Packard Bell 486/Pentium/PCs; the world needs more of these classic titles with the old platform flare. I believe your team is right on track with bringing many enjoyable, and replayable, titles back to a market saturated by first person blood and gore. Looking forward to this game, and future historically-accurate simulations, from the reborn Dynamix team. -Stephen

This is rather disappointing i have to admit, i take the view as there has been no information anywhere about the game or the company for a year that either the release date won't happen in november as listed or something has gone wrong. No promotion of your game that's about to be released is hardly a good sign.

OK, I've thought about this for a while and now I'm beyond depressed. We in the Red Baron community hoped for years that somehow Damon Slye would get control of Red Baron back and do something with it. He did and I never heard about it until today. I read lots of tech blogs and news sites every day and never saw a thing. Admittedly, I don't look at game blogs much because I don't like games made today. The only reason I'm on Steam is to get Battlefield 2. My sons and I had a discussion the other day about games; I said the only games I ever really enjoyed were Red Baron and the early Battlefield games. They said to join Steam and get Battlefield 2, I did and we've been having a blast playing on our LAN.

Damon, you can't quit. You just have to get the word out to enough old players, and I'm sure funds can be raised. Maybe release a demo so new players can get a taste. Come up with some kind of publicity stunt that will go viral! Someone has to fund this game!!!

I can't believe I am just finding out about this. I played Red Baron online for many years, and I would have given a lot to the Kickstarter project. That game was much more fun than any game made today. They didn't do a very good job of getting the word out. I was a a member of many Red Baron forums, including the old Delphi ones. I'm amazed I didn't get an email or something.

I agree - what happened to this?
It sucks there is no new information about this.
I was totally in, but now I'm beginning to think if it does get released, bug fixes will go the same route of nothingness

It seems so sadly :-/
Developers have been silent since july '14
Facebook page dead in the water
Forums filled with ppl asking for news
Funding ended far from goal

So it seems to dead

One could still hope for a surprise attack from the hun in the sun :-D
Just like Cinewares "Wings" did ... popped out of nowhere with "Hey ... remember me ;-D "
AlbyKaizer[ITA] Nov 11 @ 9:22am 
is this game DEAD?
Fluesmækkeren Nov 2 @ 9:07am 
High hopes for this game is diminshing!! ... Devs, did you go dark ?!"?

I'm not so sure about that November date. I went to the RB forum to check on some posts regarding that, and they were all gone.

Wallet is ready...
Wingnut Oct 19 @ 2:23pm

One of my all-time favorite games. C'mon Damon, get it done.

Man, I cannot wait for this to be released, I played the original that my dad bought when I was a kid. Ever since, we have been looking for a game similar to this, and while there is some that have bi/tri-planes - Nothing can ever quite be like "Red Baron"
msgte Aug 28 @ 2:53pm 
Here's hoping that the Red Baron Redux has the heart of the original: A dynamic campaign that makes you interested in what's happening to your virtual knight of the air. Pretty graphics are a dime a dozen nowadays, but the marriage of good looks, a vibrant campaign, scalable flight models that satisfy the casual gamer and serious simulation fans, topped with a multiplayer and modding community that keeps the game fresh is a tall order.

Catching that kind of lightning in a bottle twice is tough.

Played the original Ace of Aces for a while, and I was disappointed when I came back to it only to find it was taken down. I'm really excited for Red Baron. Good work.
Yggdrasil Aug 8 @ 10:20pm 
Well, glad I checked out the Red Baron website to see it is active!

As fantastic as having a technologically viable Red Baron, Otter, remember that plane painting and customization that every one can see, and editable recordings of the battles is the other half of the equation. Who can resist sitting around with a beer watching your plane do the amazing in your own comfort to the cheers of your best mate, eh?

"And, we are now getting some traction on bringing Red Baron back to market. We have several pieces of exciting news that I can't share yet! Sorry to be secretive, but it's too early, but I wanted to let you know we're still committed to Red Baron. Most importantly, Red Baron will be the highest quality flight game ever seen when we bring it out!" - DamonSlye (posted on July 14th, 2014 on the Red Baron forums)

Nothing updated since October 2013? Is this really coming to Steam in less than four months?
guusvdvalk Jul 28 @ 11:43am 
The original is one of my alltime favorites. I downloaded it again from gog recently, and it still brought a huge smile to my face. But it definitely can use a modern update.
Love the old school flight sims with campaign and story. What is the status of Red Baron?
classycamaro Jul 15 @ 5:55pm 
The big 3, EAW, Aces and this one! Can't wait!!
Deathsnake Jul 13 @ 4:41am 
Life signal pls :(
Sackkiller Jul 12 @ 11:52am 
whats on? waiting, waiting...
Yggdrasil Jul 1 @ 4:33am 
Hey, devs! How about an update on how things are going? Nothing has been posted for months.
Chryses Jun 25 @ 7:16pm 
So what is going on with this game? I was a Kickstarter backer way back when. I am really interested in a flight sim from this era. Maybe I'll go play Rise of Flight?
MazeMouse Jun 11 @ 2:18pm 
Is this game going to get a similar epic manual like the old Red Baron 2 had? (that thing was a small history booklet)
orochi Jun 2 @ 3:46pm 
Red Baron and Aces Over the Pacific are among the the best games of my early years of gaming.So plz bring it back
Vegas May 16 @ 1:51pm 
indeed, i am a fan of the old red baron and red baron 3d. it made me learn more about ww1 as well. i still give a tip of the hat to charles nungessor and ernest udet
Buho May 13 @ 4:07pm 
omg yes!
wozron May 12 @ 10:00pm 
Hey guys, you may want to check the 'visibility' of this game in steam. Even knowing about it, it doesn't show up in search functions etc.
BrySCX10 May 11 @ 9:23pm 
Been playing this series since I was a kid, played all the aces games as well, really looking forward to this I still play Red Baron 3d
Die Fahne Hoch May 11 @ 2:36pm 
Will this support Mac?
Bpinator May 8 @ 5:21pm 
OMG I just cant wait for this to come out!
theCavalier [OTG] May 8 @ 2:51pm 
Hm. kathyp3: didn't I see that in a fake tea party pettition? Probably not, I must be mistaken.
theCavalier [OTG] May 8 @ 2:49pm 
Mr. Slye. I must protest the continuing presence of this single video! Let me explain. If, God forbid, I was Rob Ford, pipe in hand, and you were on the other side of the table talking about the goodness of crack just out of reach to which you refered over and over again, I might have a stroke. I'm sure you never realized that some RB1 and RB2 players were so completely addicted, or you would be putting progress videos out periodically, being the prince of a human being that you must be. After all, every really good game I entrusted to my 5 1/2 floppy back then had the coveted dynamix logo, and I knew they would not only work, but take up the next several months. Now that you know, however, perhaps you could shoot some short updates, because more and more I am thinking of ending it all with my 6'5" blow gun.
Yours in admiration and the heaviest satire

Is Red Baron dead? I've seen nothing from Mad Otter since a few days after the kickstarter failed (they were looking for $250,000 but only got $40,000 of that. Ouch). Mad Otter have had much chatter about their other games going on, and some which were started after Red Baron have already made it to market. I wish I was pulling down the kind of money I was making before a drunk driver hit me and paralyzed me. I would have funded the whole thing myself, I believe in it that strongly.

If a dev team member reads this, could you give us the courtesy of telling us its status? is any work being done on it at present, or is it tabled for now, or perhaps into the forseable future? Please tell us something. The silence is driving us stark mad!
Deathsnake Apr 24 @ 12:08pm 
Wait for the Kickstarter Relaunch. When you start it?
Die Fahne Hoch Apr 21 @ 7:58pm 
OH I CAN NOT WAIT!

Can't wait for this to be released!
artisticgoose.buck Apr 18 @ 3:56am 
Please tell me when this is out!!!! My lfe is incomplete and I must have this.........!!!
MorbiusTV Apr 17 @ 1:20pm 
The original was awesome and this looks promising.
skubyman Apr 13 @ 3:35pm 
Still recall the excitement of spotting a solitary black pixel on the horizon that I just knew had to be an enemy squadron. I've always wanted the game re-done to take advantage of the leaps in rendering and computing power. Thanks for sharing this consumers's dream Mad Otter!
SS MARINE Mar 27 @ 9:52am 
wow... i played the original like crazy when i was a kid. when i saw this in greenlight i nearly pissed my pants. hope this gets the remake it deserves.
alansaund Mar 24 @ 11:21am 
Looking forward to this game..........can't wait!
Wolfgar Sigvarthson (NOPE) Mar 22 @ 7:16am 
I have played most of these from the original line drawn arcade shooter, then Sierra on Line, then the 90s version and another following that..Red Baron II which has the Sierra and Dynamix label on the cd jacket. I still have so many of these games packed away in boxes.. and some 5.25 floppies. I have the AOP 3.5s..
fantas1sta Mar 21 @ 8:20am 
The original was one of the greatest games ever made, can't wait!
