Fly! 2 Preview
9:02 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

CGO has written up a preview of Fly! 2, the sequel to the
popular flight simulator from Terminal Reality and Gathering of
Developers
. The sequel will include many improvements over the original, and
will be available later this year for both Mac and PC. The preview
includes interview question with the with lead designer for the game, Richard Harvey, about their start with Fly!, improvements to eye candy
in Fly! 2, and how the game will be easier to get started -- after all, there is such a thing as too much realism. Here's an excerpt:

"With Fly!," Harvey explains, "the manual was basically an instruction for
flying a real plane. It didn't explain how to use the product, and people got
frustrated.


"This time, we'll have a tutorial copilot calling things out, and a tutorial
script with a trainer pilot, so that people can right get in and start playing
without the manual."


"We're hopeful that Fly! 2 will attract both hardcore and casual gamers,"
Goss adds. "We've tried to design for both, and the adventure mode and
multiplayer should help. With the adventure mode, we're trying to push the
entertainment value, and the co-pilot can handle all the mundane systems,
or you can do it all yourself. We're not removing any of the systems we
had in the original, but we're adding layers on top of that so that new users
don't have to do everything."

The rest of the preview/interview is very informative, so be sure to give it a
look if you're interested in Mac flight sims. GoD will be publishing the game
for both Mac and PC later this summer.
