Ares Games have announced that they have made a licensing agreement with Dire Wolf Digital to turn their classic game of WWI dogfighting, Wings of Glory, into a video game for PCs, phones, and tablets.

Wings of Glory is an excellent WWI and WWII miniatures game, letting you take to the skies and play out those first aerial battles on the tabletop.

Its flowing movement system makes for a fast, free-flowing game that I believe will transfer well into a digital format.

Here is the announcement from Ares and Dire Wolf:

Wings of Glory is a fast-playing and easy to learn game system created by Andrea Angiolino and Pier Giorgio Paglia that allows players to recreate aerial combat during World War I and II, using cards and miniatures to represent the airplanes and their manoeuvres. Players control one or more airplanes, taking to the skies to engage their opponents in aerial duels, or trying to accomplish a specific mission, such as recon, escort, or bombing.

Based in Denver, Colorado, Dire Wolf Digital is an experienced independent game studio. A few years ago, the company started a partnership with Renegade Game Studios to bring their suite of tabletop titles to digital, developing the digital editions of “Lanterns: The Harvest Festival” and “Lotus”, and now is expanding its projects of digital adaptations of tabletop games – in addition to “Wings of Glory”, Dire Wolf is announcing new partnerships for “Mage Knight”, “Root”, “Sagrada”, “Yellow & Yangtze”, and “Raiders of the North Sea.”

“At Dire Wolf Digital, we believe in making fun strategy games that are accessible to everyone. And we can’t even begin to tell you how excited we are to bring this roster of amazing tabletop games to digital players around the world. We hope you’ll love them as much as we do”, said Scott Martins, president of Dire Wolf Digital.

“We are glad to announce this partnership with Dire Wolf Digital to take the Wings of Glory game experience to electronic devices. It’s something our existing players asked for, and we believe it will be a great asset to introduce our game system to new players”, commented Roberto Di Meglio, director of production of AresGames.

More details about the digital adaptations of Wings of Glory by Dire Wolf will be unveiled in the coming months.

This is something I am very excited to see as a video game version will allow me to play the game and may streamline the experience somewhat. However, it does take away somewhat from the experience of facing your opponent across the table, trying desperately to guess what moves they are making, but then for that we still have the tabletop experience.

I just hope they also do the Tripods & Triplanes variant.

Is this a game you will want to give a go?
