Pew pew. Stretch your arms out wide and pretend you're an airplane. That's the premise of North of Earth's bizarre multiplayer shooter, Cult of the Wind. "Human dogfights" play out, complete with imaginary weapons, pretend explosions, and airplane noises made with mouths.

"Shower your friends in a hail of imaginary bullets and proclaim, 'I got you! You have to lie down,' to which they respond, 'Nuh-uh, I have a shield.' You argue about whether or not airplanes can have shields, meanwhile some other guy does a cannonball onto your head while whistling," the game's Steam Greenlight campaign (via Kotaku) describes.

In addition to "high-speed mock combat," the game will include a level editor, for fans that want to create something real to imaginary-fight in. Check out the trailer:

      It looks like Quake III: Arena for six-year-olds. Could be fun.
