It's now possible to reach Vlambeer's Nuclear Throne

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...

Vlambeer apologizes for 'discomfort' from Luftrausers imagery

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...

Impressions: Luftrausers makes too much sense on the Vita

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...

Contest: Win a Steam code for Luftrausers!
by Beccy Caine

[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 contributed to my impending mental breakdown.

One half of the indie duo, Rami Ismail, was kind enough to give me five Steam codes to celebrate the launch and while I'm reluctant to give even more people the opportunity to beat my high score, I should probably share.

Vlambeer changing direction of Nuclear Throne

Luftrausers final unlockable is a monstrosity

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.

These are my favorite Luftrausers photo
These are my favorite Luftrausers
by Conrad Zimmerman

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 showing four of my favorite configurations.

I'm seriously addicted to this game. Only three absurdly difficult challenges stand between me and total completion, and I'll be damned if I'm going to let them get the better of me. Make sure you go and read our full review!

Review: Luftrausers
by Conrad Zimmerman

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.

Nuclear Throne sells 10K, Ridiculous Fishing goes Android

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...

Vlambeer wants YouTubers to get filthy rich off its games

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...
