World War I Flying Circus (WWIFC) is a turn-based WWI biplane dogfight game. It's like playing chess in the air, but with one difference -- white and black move at the same time.


This video highlights what worked well during my heads-down development months. Unity Technologies (an Integrated Development Environment, or IDE) is an outrageously powerful tool.

This video highlights just one of those "wow" moments.
