[16:42] <Noxy|Dwater> We have combat right close to the ground
[16:42] <Noxy|Dwater> fast fast fast combat
[16:42] <Noxy|Dwater> You dont end up chasing another planes tail for 1 minute

Quote:
"DogFighter is a fast paced, arcade aerial combat game with arena style gameplay values. Players will engage in single and multiplayer game modes using beefed up biplanes sporting a vast array of weaponry including the deadly Viper Cannon and the devastating Annihilator Missile.

Game modes feature the classics; Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Capture The Flag, as well as other that provide that distinctive DogFighter flavour. The state-of-the-art flight model allows the player to maintain a precise level of control, while allowing acrobatic manoeuvres like the Barrel Roll and the Immelmann Turn.

Built to both slay you and save you, the environments in DogFighter offer the player a more interactive experience than is usual for the genre. Players can enjoy piloting their craft down mining tunnels, through pyramids and active volcanoes in environments designed to deliver a more varied, more interactive gaming experience."

If you sign up quickly you will most likely get in as the goal of the current beta pool is 150-200.

I signed up, but after what i have seen on this video you'll probably need a gamepad or joystick to play that kind of arcade sim.. it might be pretty difficult to use keyboard.
