Steppenwolf (1974)

SteppenwolfHarry’s vivid imagination has him convinced that, inside, a wolf lurks. Will it break free? Is Harry, as the 60s rock group Steppenwolf phrased it, “Born to Be Wild.” Harry, age 48, is a Central European intellectual in the full sway of a mid-life crisis. One he intends to put paid to by committing suicide when he is 50. Bizarrely, Harry’s story became the spiritual pole of the “Sixties”, when Fishman and Herland set off on a seven-year journey to tell it on film. Steppenwolf provides a key to the most “open-minded” generation – ever.

Gunbus and Gaming! Action and adventure take to the skies!

***Game in development!***

In this exciting action-adventure, a pair of cowboys of the Old West end up as fighter pilots in World War I through a series of wild and wacky circumstances.

Barney and Luke’s adventure takes them to the skies with newfound friends as they graduate from horseback into the modern age in this daring display of a multitude of fighter planes – Bristols and ‘Specials’ – thanks to the engineering genius of Fritz’s ‘Specials’ defending against a giant Zeppelin, the Gotha-Bomber, dastardly air mines, the Cathedral of Death and superior enemy firepower.

Will good triumph over evil? Will Barney and Luke make it through? Find out in GUNBUS the game, an adventure in which the sky’s the limit but our heroes and heroines are decidedly down to earth.
