Wings of Saint Nazaire

posted in: Red Herrings | 1

I feel like I’ve been slacking lately, so this week, I’ve got a free game for you.

Well, at least it’s a free alpha version of the game, which is still in development.
But, they do say that they plan on making it free when it’s finally complete.  The game is called, as you may have guessed from the title of this post, Wings of Saint Nazaire.  It’s a pretty retro space shooter inspired by X-Wing and Wing Commander.  You can see some animated GIF screen-shots at Screenburn, if you need your appetite whetted before going to the main site to download the game.  For gamers who are as old as me, the interface and graphics should all look very familiar.  This is retro gaming at its best, as far as I can see.
To be honest, I’ve never been a huge gamer, but this really looks like a fun “blast from the past” as it were.

If you’re willing to install a plugin, you can even play Wings of Saint Nazaire right in your browser!
And, since it’s Friday and you all are slacking already, I bet that’s what most of you all will do!
Have fun!
