Anyone remember Desert Strike? Jungle Strike? Urban Strike? Well, Megacopter: Blades of the Goddess is for you! Built like the classics, although it looks a lot more wild, like something out of a fever dream. The developer has announced it's releasing June 21st with full Linux and Steam Deck support.

Pilot the sentient Megacopter while you battle Reptoid forces in the air and on the ground. Take off on an adventure with Jack the Pilot, Hobo Jones and his crew, and many more.

Game Features:

  • Missions: Play a variety of mission types. Seek and destroy missions feature an escalating threat level as you penetrate enemy lines. Rescue missions allow you to save your comrades (choplifter style). Defense missions feature waves of enemies. Boss hunt missions feature a powerful enemy.
  • Environments: Take the fight to the Reptoids across 4 different biomes and dozens of missions as you look to defeat the Reptoid scum and bring sanity back to the Tri-state area!
  • Command the Weapons of Mortals: The Megacopter is a machine with huge guns, and an even bigger appetite for blood. Exchange Pizza Tokens at the armory, and unlock more guns, more firepower, and more…well….destruction.
  • Unlock the Power of AZ-TECH: The Blades of the Goddess demand blood, and blood you will deliver. Through (somewhat willing) Greg sacrifices, you can unlock the powers of the Goddess that lives within Megacopter. Choose the perfect AZ-TECH pairing for your mission loadouts and you’ll be cutting through Reptoids like a knife through butter.
  • Soundtrack: Original soundtrack by OGRE sound. These amazing retro tracks will get you in the mood to seek and destroy.

Check it out on Steam when it releases on June 21st.

Nice. In the last couple months I was wishing for a modern take on the old Desert Strike. This might scratch that itch. And it will have a Linux port, so whishlisted it is.

Lol that came out of nowhere. I've had this on my wishlist for what feels like years and years and years and now it's really coming. I kinda lost interest, though. :/

Best megadrive series IMHO
