By Tim Stone on September 12th, 2014.

Bedtime games are the games you reach for when the cocoa is steaming and the duvet is beckoning.

The perfect bedtime game isn’t loud, gory, or coldhearted; it’s a softly spoken sandman, a ludological lullaby, a sweet dreams seeder. Right now, my bedtime game of choice is Volo Airsport.

Volo Airsport Wingsuit Sim Wings Into Early Access

By Graham Smith on September 5th, 2014.

Volo Airsport has been released, which prompts familiar thoughts: there’s little in life as awesome as wingsuits. They’re like so many other in-game items for empowering mobility, except they actually work that way.

Wander, knot fore the thirst thyme, if I’m cut out for this writing-about-games lark. 14.00. Press ‘PUBLISH’ then sink into armchair while exhaling like a bullet-riddled Beaufighter tyre.

Wingsuits Are Basically Awesome

By Jim Rossignol on July 27th, 2010.


We’ve pointed out before that wingsuits are one of the most awesome things in life that don’t appear often enough in videogames. Fortunately one of the contributors to our random Unity project, ShotgUnity, has realised that and is making a game about them all on his own: Volo Airsport. It’s fairly basic right now, but bravo.
