This was my favorite game back then, and the announcement was all I wanted it to be. Apparently, there was a Kickstarter - never heard of it; wish I did, I'd gladly chip in.

Please, please, please come back and make this game. The intro sound still plays in my head.

Will Snoopy be in it?

pretty good kick to the balls to discover this, then find out it's abandoned :(

I've been waiting for years for somebody to remake this game. I hope you guys don't give up. You should retry kickstarter, I somehow missed the original kickstarter but I gladly would have paid if I knew about it.

no news for this game?
Red Jun 7, 2015 @ 4:51pm 
I hope this isn't dead, the silence is deafening here though. Would love to kick some HD Sopwith ***.

I would be willing to pay $100 for a WWI dog fight sim with oculus support. Please make this happen.
MorbiusTV Apr 17, 2015 @ 10:43pm 
Why won't this game get made?! Seriously, who do we have to throw our monies at?
Tryhard Tommy Feb 18, 2015 @ 10:41pm 
Oh i get it now! November 2014 means never! Wow its all starting to make sense now. Thanks devs and steam.

Why do you forsake us?!?
Superguus Jan 14, 2015 @ 8:46am 
Concurring with comments below, I would donate

I enjoyed many hours in the cockpit of this great flight simulator of Richthofens War! I also agree with what Mark said that Mad Otter games should release a demo on steam and get the word out and start another kickstarter campaign.
watermouse Jan 5, 2015 @ 2:17pm 
Im with what Mark said. Release a demo and start another fundraising campaign. I knew nothing about it when the first happened. I know if there was a place, I would definitely donate to get this online and going.
Yggdrasil Jan 1, 2015 @ 2:41am 
Sigh... Another dream dashed.
msgte Dec 12, 2014 @ 6:58pm 
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.
mark Nov 23, 2014 @ 9:33pm 
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!!!
mark Nov 23, 2014 @ 8:53pm 
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.
watermouse Nov 21, 2014 @ 3:55pm 
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
Fluesmækkeren Nov 11, 2014 @ 1:15pm 
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 "
Det Deus Vult Nov 11, 2014 @ 9:22am 
is this game DEAD?
Fluesmækkeren Nov 2, 2014 @ 9:07am 
High hopes for this game is diminshing!! ... Devs, did you go dark ?!"?
msgte Oct 28, 2014 @ 7:52pm 
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.
Deathsnake Oct 28, 2014 @ 3:11pm 
Wallet is ready...
Wingnut Oct 19, 2014 @ 2:23pm 
ONLY A MONTH LEFT, THANK LAWDY! I actually NEED this game haha, cannot wait for it.

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

Merçi de le maitre en français !
watermouse Sep 20, 2014 @ 2:30pm 
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, 2014 @ 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.
Blue_Skies Aug 26, 2014 @ 2:58pm 
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, 2014 @ 10:20pm 
Well, glad I checked out the Red Baron website to see it is active!
theCavalier [OTG] Aug 6, 2014 @ 7:46am 
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)
Yggdrasil Aug 4, 2014 @ 3:27am 
Nothing updated since October 2013? Is this really coming to Steam in less than four months?
Superguus Jul 28, 2014 @ 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.
get in the van Jul 26, 2014 @ 7:09am 
Love the old school flight sims with campaign and story. What is the status of Red Baron?
classycamaro Jul 15, 2014 @ 5:55pm 
The big 3, EAW, Aces and this one! Can't wait!!
Deathsnake Jul 13, 2014 @ 4:41am 
Life signal pls :(
Sackkiller Jul 12, 2014 @ 11:52am 
whats on? waiting, waiting...
Yggdrasil Jul 1, 2014 @ 4:33am 
Hey, devs! How about an update on how things are going? Nothing has been posted for months.
Chryses Jun 25, 2014 @ 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, 2014 @ 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, 2014 @ 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, 2014 @ 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
