Former Sony Computer Entertainment London and Criterion employees Richard Bunn and David Green launched a Kickstarter campaign today. Their new military-action game Killstorm is putting gamers in the pilot seat of an attack helicopter.

Killstorm is heavily inspired by retro games like Desert Strike, according to Nice Touch Games. While it features a retro-styled gameplay and camera angle, it still uses modern controls and visuals. Nice Touch Games also says that players can fly around and out-maneuver enemies using one finger.

Current plans are to bring Killstorm to PC, Mac, Windows Phone, iOS, and Android. But, the game could come to other platforms if the community shows enough interest, according to the Kickstarter page. 

Backers who pledge at least £5 (roughly $8.32) will get a digital copy of Killstorm, which is less than what Happy Touch Games projects the final price to be. Nice Touch Games is seeking £10,000 on Kickstarter before April 28. 

Those seeking more info can check out the Kickstarter page, or play the demo of Killstorm.
