Guts, brains, and firepower - Hornet Leader PC has kicked its tires and lit the fires and is now available for purchase!

Matrix Games and Dan Verssen Games (www.dvg.com) are thrilled to announce that Hornet Leader PC is now available for purchase! Now gamers can take to the skies and experience the tactical thrill of commanding some of the most elite aircraft in the world in historical/plausible missions with impressively realistic equipment and enemies.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Hornet Leader PC makes for a stunning game based on Dan Verssen’s talented game design and the great development skills of Derek DiBenedetto and Storm Cloud Creations.”

 

Dan Verssen of Dan Verssen Games added “It’s really gratifying to see a card game which has done so well in the past now take up a digital form and become available to the public. Matrix Games’ assistance helped this release to become one of my best product releases.”

 

Derek DiBenedetto of Storm Cloud Creations also added “The release of Hornet Leader PC is particularly exciting for me as I had a blast developing it alongside Dan Verssen and Matrix Games. It’s been great bringing this project together and creating something truly unique.”

 

In Hornet Leader PC, you command a squadron of the U.S. Navy’s elite F/A-18 Hornet Strike Fighters! You select the pilots and arm the aircraft based on real-world mission briefings. Once you reach your objective, you evaluate threats, and do what needs to be done to destroy the target!

 

Each pilot has his own set of unique skills and abilities. With each mission, a pilot’s skills increase, but so does his fatigue level. You must decide how hard to push your men as one of the many decisions that go into every mission. You will fly high intensity missions over Iraq, Libya, and North Korea from 1991 to 2007. Your weapon selection for each campaign is updated to accurately match the weapons available for that era.

 

We’ll see you in the pilots’ briefing room!

HoW15 - I don't like this, it doesn't work

Friday, June 12, 2015

Imagine catching a flight to a distant city you've never been to. You leave in a rush, no time to read a proper travel guide. Don't know the language either. Don't know the local rules: this trip is going to be a nightmare, for sure. 
 
The airport is your first test. And most airports are pretty good at showing the right information, making good use of symbols, guiding customers through the right paths and making them feel like they are doing the right thing and it's not as hard as they thought just before landing.
