Vlambeer

Rami Ismail of Vlambeer has come up with a creative and generous way to effectively double the Nuclear Throne community while at the same time saying thanks to all those who supported the Early Access title during 2014. As o...
After months of updates, the in-development Nuclear Throne now has an actual Nuclear Throne, though getting to it -- and surviving the ensuing battle -- won't be easy. "To us, reaching the Nuclear Throne is the most crucial m...
Today at PAX East, Vlambeer's Rami Ismail announced that their latest game, Nuclear Throne, will feature cooperative multiplayer. The mode will allow for up to four players to play simultaneously, either locally or over ...
Vlambeer are no strangers to positive press, having endeared themselves to many through their tenacity in the face of a sometimes malicious marketplace, constant efforts to help others find success, and most importantly, prod...


Luftrausers is perfect on the Vita in the same way Vlambeer's Super Crate Box was perfect on the Vita. It's "perfect for the Vita" because it's a great game. While either title, with their minimal arcade sensibilities "make s...
[Update: Contest over! Winners have been PM'd their codes.] Vlambeer's customisable dogfighter Luftrausers released last week to near-universal praise after an agonising wait in certification that may or may not have contri...
I really love Nuclear Throne. The procedurally generated stages and high challenge level have kept me coming back time and again as Vlambeer has continued to tweak and expand the game in Early Access. Today comes perhaps the...
After no small amount of effort (and a couple of glitches that I am a bit peeved about), I finally managed to complete all of the challenges in Luftrausers and the reward you get for doing so is totally amazing. 
I've been slavishly playing Luftrausers like a madman this past weekend, and I'm shaping up to be a fairly decent player. To help you get a sense of the different Rausers you can pilot, I put together this little video ...
Vlambeer's air combat game, Luftrausers, has finally been cleared for take-off, following a wait that seemed far longer than anybody expected it would. It's been worth holding out for, and fans of high speed, challenging shoot-em-ups have something pretty special on their hands.
We already knew developer Vlambeer's Lufrausers was headed to the PC, PS3 and Vita platforms, but now we have a concrete release date -- March 18th. Publisher Devolver Digital has also confirmed today that it will b...
Vlambeer's arcade shooter Luftrausers will see a simultaneous release across Windows, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita this year, publisher Devolver Digital has announced. It's been taking a while but for ...
Forget that year of Luigi nonsense, the real thing you should be celebrating is Indie Month on the Videogame Clubhouse. We're keeping the hype train a-rollin' with the fantastic Nuclear Throne. If you're not all up in this bu...
It's been a little while since we've heard anything from Vlambeer about their upcoming projects Luftrausers and Nuclear Throne. Looks like we'll have to wait a little longer for news on the former. The game is still without a...
While some of the larger videogame companies have made a habit out of asserting copyright claims against YouTubers that broadcast videos of their titles, Vlambeer is taking the exact opposite approach. The Dutch indie develop...
The latest title from Dutch indies Vlambeer, Nuclear Throne, has appeared on Steam today in Early Access. In an interesting development, purchasing early will come at a higher price than the game's final release.  Vlambe...
Vlambeer (Super Crate Box, Ridiculous Fishing) is the vlambest. On its website, the indie studio announced its upcoming PS4, Vita, and PC "roguelike-like" Wasteland Kings would be renamed Nuclear Throne. An employee of InExil...

Super Crate Box, LUFTRAUSERS, and Ridiculous Fishing developer Vlambeer's next game Wasteland Kings is another minimal, arcade-style project, one that builds on its prior titles and "feels like Vlambeer." If you've tried any ...

Vlambeer has rolled out a new version of Ridiculous Fishing for iPhone and iPad, and I think you're going to love one of the changes in particular: the newly-introduced knife lets you cut your line, meaning you can restart an...
As soon as I sat down with Ridiculous Fishing, I was hooked (ha!). Vlambeer had created something so simple, yet truly addictive and fun, and it was incredibly hard to put down. Fans now have a lot to look forward to, as Vla...
Vlambeer sure does make great games. Super Crate Box and Gun Godz in particular are just so finely tuned that I can't help but wonder whether the dudes that make up the Netherlands-based studio are game developer robots. I'm ...
On last Sunday's Sup Holmes (now on iTunes) we were joined by the unflappable Rami and J.W. of Vlambeer fame. The reveled the path of near-cancellation and eventual success of Ridiculous Fishing, the origins of their unique ...
Last time we had Rami Ismail of Vlambeer on the Sup Holmes, he and his studio were probably best known for Super Crate Box. Since then, things have really exploded for the studio. Ridiculous Fishing took the world by storm o...
Destructoid loves Ridiculous Fishing. We can't stop talking about its clever design, quirky vernacular, and unmistakable prismatic aesthetic. Whenever I see strangers on the train playing the likes of trashy iOS games like&nb...

Ridiculous Fishing is a game that looks ripe for microtransaction exploitation, but developer Vlambeer has opted instead to charge a flat $2.99 and let the chips fall where they may. The studio's belief that free-to-play mode...
A lot of great game developers are fascinated with fishing. Pokémon, Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess, and Animal Crossing all feature the option to fish. Earthbound/Mother creator Shigesato Itoi created a ...
Vlambeer has announced the release date for Ridiculous Fishing, which will be arriving on iOS March 14. I was fiddling around with the game on my iPad over the weekend, and it's some highly addictive stuff. If you've played ...
Mojam, the five-day indie game-creating jam spearheaded by Mojang, has ended. Nine titles from six developers were created in this short time, making me seriously consider how I spend most of my time. Hopefully you found some...
This morning, Mojang and the Humble Bundle team kicked off the Humble Bundle Mojam 2, a game jam whose proceeds go entirely to the charities Block by Block and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. As usual for the Humble Bund...

We've talked about the L.A. Game Space kickstarter and its absurdly generous rewards before, but they bear repeating. Gaijin Games is putting the backer who donated $5,000 into their upcoming game Runner 2 as a playable char...
It's somehow been two years since Vlambeer released Super Crate Box for PC. I distinctly remember Conrad getting obsessed with the minimalistic arcade game for a good long time and eventually causing me to get all wrapped up ...
Venus Patrol is a great idea. An indie-focused website hosted by none other than Brandon Boyer who, among other things, is the chairman of the Independent Game Festival. There's a subscription model for Venus Patrol that nets...
Two years ago in October, Super Crate Box released for PC and effectively destroyed my life for that month. Those dutch bastards at Vlambeer aren't done with crates by a long shot and have now laid claim to the ent...
