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. The core concept is fun as hell, anyway.
Following the studio's collaboration with Devolver Digital on Serious Sam: The Random Encounter, the two are once again teaming up for this arcade-style aerial combat game that's coming to PC and Mac at the end of this year and to consoles in 2013 "with a price point set at $5,000."
"Release date and price subject to change," reads the press release. Naturally, Devolver CFO Fork Parker was around to comment: "For every plane that is shot down in Luftrausers I pledge to personally donate a portion of the profits from the game to an exotic dancer of my choosing. Call me old-fashioned but I have soft spot in my heart for ladies willing to take their clothes off for money."

Two weeks until The Swapper lands on Steam
A few seconds into this trailer for The Swapper and I'm reminded of how uniquely gorgeous the puzzle-platformer looks. There is, after all, a reason why we resort to bringing up The Neverhood in these situations; not enough ...more
