If you can recall the heady days of PC gaming, where flight simulators and space combat games reigned supreme, you’ll definitely remember LucasArts’ X-wing and Tie fighter games. They might be coming back, if a job listing at LucasArts wasn’t just designed to torment gamers.
The company that built star wars (and then broke it) is looking for a senior gameplay engineer for an aerial combat title. LucasArts don’t only make Star Wars games though – and they’re responsible for a fair few other aerial combat games, like Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe and Secret Weapons Over Normandy.
The bit that gets me excited is that the job listing says that â€œExperience with flight sims, aerial shooters, and especially space-based shootersâ€ are a plus. Space based shooters! X Wing! Tie Fighter! If neither of those, then I’d happily take a new Roque Squadron as well. Plus, it would be nice to have a new Star Wars game from somebody other than Bioware that doesn’t completely suck.
