IRON GALAXY ANNOUNCES WINDJAMMERS H-DEE: HYPER DELUXE eSPORTS EDITION

Welcome back to the world of Windjammers – Multiplayer Redfined Launching This Summer

CHICAGO – March 31, 2014 – Iron Galaxy Studios, today announce that fans of the critically acclaimed game Windjammers™ will see an updated online multiplayer focused version of the game launching in July of this year for $19.99. Windjammers Hyper Deluxe eSports edition will be available as a digital purchase for $19.99 via PSN and Steam, providing a new generation of Windjammer enthusiasts with a godlike update to this historic franchise.

Windjammers H-DEE: Hyper Deluxe eSports Edition brings players back to the courts first introduced in the original award-winning Windjammers, as well as introducing two unique Divekick themed courts - the Dojo and the Basketball court. Each court has distinctive tactical gameplay options, new characters, power ups, abilities and upgrades on a total of eight multiplayer arenas set in the Windjammers and Divekick universe. Windjammers H-DEE also includes a new progression system that introduces other unique content into the game and enables players to dive deeper into the tactical and strategic aspects of the game than ever before.

All Windjammers H-DEE players can then battle across 8 courts (along with countless others available on Steam Workshop) in auto-match multiplayer, and daily online tournaments.

“We know how much fans love the setting of the original game and we have responded to their request to revisit the Windjammers Universe,” said Dave Lang, CEO of Iron Galaxy Studios. “By offering Divekick themed content to Windjammers H-DEE, we are giving players a brand new set of tactical options that significantly expand their multiplayer experience. At Iron Galaxy, we believe there is gold in even the stupidest of ideas. That's how we knew we had to bring Windjammers back to the people. “

Windjammers H-DEE will be available to play at PAX east, please stop by our booth.

If this is actually real, what a diabolically horrible time to announce it.

I hope it's real. I want it to be real.

It's probably not real.

Thanks, Dave Lang. I hate you!

What if Dave Lang is playing the long con and the real April Fools joke is that this isn't an April Fools joke?

Perfect response. Kudos, sir/madam.

This is kinda why I hate being a " gamer " on April Fools Day.

Sometimes I wonder how Lang still has a job.

This sort of thinking means Lang has taken this all too far.

After DiveKick I'm going to assume that April Fool's Jokes and legitimate pitches get filed into the same folder.

Not to be a debbie downer but, do people actually have an appreciation for Windjammers or is it some kind of post-modern/hipster "ironic appreciation"?

I am glad that this is April fools day. That art would completely put me off buying a new Windjammers.

#34 Edited by SomeJerk (3159 posts) -

Not including an Xbox One release makes it seem real to me.

Oh maaaaaan god dammit Lang.

Did any sites actually bite on this press release like one or two did with the beefy media facebook games a few years ago?

#40 Edited by evildeadron (830 posts) -

@mattyftm: Screenshots from buzz_clik came late, so I had to do it today and people were on alert...Lang squashed it too early. had it gone out last night like I did with Screamville / Angry Pinheads and the Adam Boyes as CEO of EA, we would have gotten some traction.

More like WindSHAMMERS! *toddles away crying*

I'd say for most people it's genuine appreciation but it's kind of a weird situation. The staff clearly genuinely enjoy it but it's not an easy game to get your hands on in a non-emulated capacity. As a result people's enthusiasm for the game is really just enthusiasm for watching the staff play the game. I bet an actual widely available Windjammers HD update would kill the mystique for a lot of people. Not to say people wouldn't enjoy it though if it were a reality.

goddammit dave lang, i fucking love/hate you.

#44 Posted by Rafaelfc (1318 posts) -

I would pay all of my monies to make this come true.

LIKE. A. DREAM.

p.s.: Don't toy with my emotions like that again in the future Mr. Lang!

#45 Posted by buzz_clik (6932 posts) -

@oldirtybearon: I fucking love Windjammers; there aren't a lot of Neo Geo games that I don't love, even the dodgier ones (I'm looking at you, Ninja Commando, Ninja Combat and Cyber-Lip).

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Since it is using flash, the least you could do it put up a web browser game like Blizzard. :P
