Vlambeer


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...


Vlambeer founders Jan Nijman and Rami Ismail revealed at their GDC Europe presentation that Ridiculous Fishing has sold 300,000 copies, according to Joystiq. At $3 a copy, that's $900,000 in total sales. So close to $1 millio...


During today's conference, it was announced that Wasteland Kings would be making its console debut exclusively on Sony's PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4, once again adding their growing line-up of indie titles.  Unvei...


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 ...


Last week on Sup Holmes (now on iTunes) we welcomed passionate pixel pusher Paul Veer to the program. Paul loves videogames, so naturally, the art and design of the Kirby, Pokemon, and Sonic franchises were irresistible subj...

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...


Holmes talks with the ever-charming Rami Ismail of Vlambeer to help those of you with short attention spans learn more about Luftrausers, coming soon to almost all the things (PC, Mac, Linux, PS3, PS Vita). Check out more of Holmes' Talk Fast interview series!


Devolver Digital has announced that they will be publishing Vlambeer's Luftrausers on PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. The aerial combat title, due to release this spring, will also be available on...


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...


From inside the Indie Megabooth at Pax Prime this year, the merchants at Level Up Studios were selling these limited edition Super Crate Box bundles celebrating Vlambeer's second anniversary. The Super Crate Bundle included a...


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...


Venus Patrol has been "really honestly actually finally launched," according to creator and indie game curator/journalist/adventurer Brandon Boyer. One click on this hyperlink will prove that he is in fact not a scheming...


I make no secret of my love for the guys at Vlambeer. Their approach to design, making games that are instantly understandable yet endlessly challenging, hits at the very core of what I think makes for timeless entertainment....


For as uncomplicated as Super Crate Box was, it sure could be engrossing if you got into the just-one-more-game mindset. I'm optimistic that Vlambeer's latest project, Luftrausers, will have that same quality going for it. T...


One of my all-time favorite indie games has finally appeared on a platform which allows (technically requires) me to pay money for it. When I first met the guys at Vlambeer after playing Super Crate Box, I actually chewed the...
