About Sky Knights


My name is Hampus Bankler. I've worked with game development for around 10 years, creating games such as Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 and Angry Birds 2. Before this career, I was a fighter jet mechanic in the Swedish Air Force, handling JAS-39 Gripen fighters.

The Game

A while back I quit my day job to embark on the journey to create a dream game of mine. Though I admit I’m one of those geeks enjoying advanced flight sims with 500 page manuals, I felt a lack of more approachable aviation games, that still took the theme seriously. I set out to create a game that combines excellent game design and super tight controls with a combat aviation theme. Of course within a setting inspired by 80’s flying movies.

I’m dedicated to staying true to what’s plausible in real life. All aircraft, weapons and mechanics are inspired by their real life counterparts. Sky Knights should be a game where any gamer feels right at home, and where a true aviation fan would appreciate the attention to detail recognizing stuff from actual real life combat aviation!

The Future

Sky Knights has been released in early access on Steam, and an amazing community has gathered around it. However, I’d like to take things further, creating more content and pushing Sky Knights into a full release.

If you would like to support me in this quest, consider signing up for a pledge from the available selections to the right. The pledges and their rewards are a fun way to support this game while getting access to limited content!

Yours truly,

Hampus Bankler, developer of Sky Knights
