Can it get more strange than hopping on flights to nowhere to reminisce about cramped airplane seats? Sure: doing that just about.
AMC Video games’ first videogame, Airplane Mode, simulates being a passenger on a trans-Atlantic flight—in actual time. It has accrued as many as 20,000 gamers in 5 days, estimates SteamSpy, which tracks on-line distributor Steam.
Covid-19 has reinvigorated transport simulators. Microsoft and Dovetail Video games have serendipitously launched new variations of their Flight Simulator and Prepare Sim World franchises.
Similar to actual flights, although, Airplane Mode has dangerous critiques. “I purchased this figuring out it was probably going to suck, however hopeful that perhaps it had some hidden, deeper which means,” one person writes on Steam’s discussion board. “You simply sit there remoted whereas listening to a airplane’s engines and nothing occurs.”
