We are pleased to announce the next major release of WOFF will be called:


WINGS OVER FLANDERS FIELDS
BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL II

I believe it was RAF_Louvert who suggested re-using BH&H so a free copy will be winging it's way when it's released.

Congrats to the winner...and the title doubled my excitement for the release!

Congratulations @Lou!!
A good name has won.

And sorry for my stupid question: Why "II"? What was the first one (I only know the title from a song)?

Greetings!

IIRC, the third iteration of OFF (which was itself a prior version of what is WOFF today) was called "Between Heaven and Hell" (BHAH). As memory serves, Phase III / BHAH was the final edition of OFF before the name was changed to WOFF.

Congratulations Lou! It could not have gone to a better man. A fitting name to boot.

Wow ... I don't know what to say, I didn't imagine I'd win with so many other fine titles being considered ... I have nothing prepared. Let's see - I'd like to thank the Academy - and OBD obviously for this fine sim - my parents of course, as I wouldn't have been possible without their help - God - and Mr. Phillips my next door neighbor when I was growing up, who taught me the importance of ... wait ... what ... they're playing me off already? ok ok - thank you everyone, and, and - you like me, you really really like me!

Great choice and nice work with the logo. Congratulations RAF_Louvert (nice speech BTW -- very fitting). Still hoping for a pre-Valentine's Day release (that's 2 weeks off, isn't it?). My Christmas gift card on stand by.
