Target Korea Progress Update
9:03 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Targetware's first project, entitled Target Korea, is a flight simulator set during the Korean War. The game has been designed to capture the essence of this conflict, using authentic terrains, air bases and ultra-realistic flight models for all of the antagonists' aircraft. Gameplay consists of aerial combat between the MiG-15bis and F-86F-30 Sabre jets, the preeminent airplanes flown during the war. This sim is "targeted" at hardcore online pilots, with an emphasis on realism.


IMG recently spoke with Wade Williams, who is working on the Mac conversion of Target Korea and offered us this update on the highly-anticipated flight sim:

Our development schedule has changed significantly. Version .31 has been
in closed beta for quite some time and is working well (and is fun). Sylvan
Clebsch (the genius behind TK) has been hard at work on version .32. In
addition to adding new features, he has reworked a great deal of the
infrastructure of the product. While we hadn't planned on taking so long to
do that, we believe it will result in an even better product in the long
run.


In the meantime, my work on an OS X version has been progressing well.
However, my wife recently gave birth to our twin babies and needless to say,
that has affected my free time. Since our timeline was extended by these
events, I'll avoid giving any dates and just say that we're pleased with how
things are going.

For more details on Target Korea, be sure to check out our interview with Wade Williams posted back in April and visit the Targetware web site.
