With­out games like 2003’s Crim­son Skies: High Road To Re­venge, we might not even have had the Xbox One. The steam­punk, ar­cade-style air­borne-pi­rate game was ut­terly orig­i­nal, and one of the first games to make use of Xbox Live. Plus, its al­ter­nate-his­tory sto­ry­line of post-Great De­pres­sion iso­la­tion­ism bring­ing about a sit­u­a­tion in which blocs of US states went to war with each other now seems eerily pre­scient. If

Crim­son Skies was re­vived, it would stand out as the only ar­cade-flier out there. In ad­di­tion, it could de­liver a sub­lim­i­nal mes­sage about the per­ils of Trump­ism. Re­put­edly, Crim­son Skies cre­ator Jor­dan Weis­man has reac­quired the rights to the fran­chise. Could some­one in­tro­duce him to Kick­starter, please?
