Red Barton and The Sky Pirates is an upcoming 3rd person shooter that hearkens back to the days of OutRun, and AfterBurner, with a story mode a la Star Fox (the N64 classic). The player takes on the role of Red Barton, a pilot of a WWI era fighter airplane fighting his way through waves of enemies, on a mission to save his love and restore his honor.
Update: January 24th, 2017 4:22pm PST: For those of you looking forward to playing this game, Red Barton and the Sky Pirates will be launching onto all platforms including Android next month, that being February 14th, 2017, which is Valentine’s Day. We will post another update once it arrives.
The game is set in a imaginative cartoon-style Steampunk world with what looks to be impressive hand-drawn illustration style graphics. Red Barton and The Sky Pirates is developed by Schism Worldwide with Unity, and has been in development since February 2016. Besides the single-player content, Red Barton will also have local co-op multiplayer available as well, but no word yet as to online multiplayer.
