Alex takes a look at the alpha version of tactical helicopter shoot ‘em up, Heliborne

Indie outfit JetCat Games are certainly playing my kind of Wagner in Heliborne.

Heliborne is aiming squarely at the team-based military multiplayer market, currently dominated by World of Tanks, Armored Warfare, and War Thunder. I recently had the chance to throw the JetCat cofounders, Raman Ulasau and Diana Leer, and community manager Anthony Keeton some questions surrounding their debut project. The first question was, simply, why helicopters?
