Luftrausers goes color while Vlambeer goes live stream

2:45 PM on 05.30.2013 // Jonathan Holmes

Upcoming game to be developed on live stream

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 style, the impact that their conflict-friendly interpersonal relationship has on their development process, their rapid prototyping process, their collaborators (including Zack Gage, Davey Wreden, and many others), Microsoft's current failures at courting small developers, tips on making fun videogames, and perhaps most importantly, the latest scoop on their upcoming projects. 

First we have Luftrausers, which is about to blow on the PS3, PS Vita, PC, Max, and Linux. We learned that the game can be "won" in less than a minute if everything comes together perfectly, but few will ever achieve this feat. Most will play the game for hours, gaining new weapons, tackling waves of enemies, discovering new idiosyncrasies on every play through, all while blowing stuff up at a constant rate. It's never the same game twice. We also learned that Vlambeer has turned to some of their favorite developers to help create custom color palettes for Luftrausers. The default game will still be presented in sepia tones, but there will be a series of alternate visuals included in the package as well. Sounds like a deal!

Perhaps the most exciting was the news that Vlambeer is hard at work on their next release. They wouldn't tell us much about it, but we do know that they'll be streaming much of the development of the game live, involving fans with the process as they go. While you may not land yourself a king's position on the development team any time soon, you can bet that no good idea will be left wasted, so you might as well get involved and see what happens.

Thanks again to Vlambeer for joining us on the show, and tune in this Sunday when we welcome Graham and Chris from Drinkbox Studios (Guacamelee, Mutant Blobs Attack) to the program. It's going to be pretty good.

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.

I've been mad at myself all morning for missing the apostrophe in "I'll" on my Quickpost last night, but it turns out that apostrophes just don't show up on the feed! Isn't that the bee's knees?

Playing through Skies of Arcadia Legends right now. Bringing this to Steam or current gen in HD seems like a no-brainer. Make it so, Sega!

Mr. Cordoba knows a lot about CSS, so I asked him to give us a touch-up job. Here's an early sneak peek at the next big Dtoid update: Drop us a note in the comments! [url]http://www.raulcordoba.com/dtoid/[/url]

I'll never get how making an inanimate object or a plant look like an animal or just alive somehow is considered more "out of ideas" than just an animal being an animal. That seems more like the opposite of being "out of ideas" to me.
