Vlambeer is bringing Luftrausers to PC and Mac, consoles


7:00 PM on 08.28.2012



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."

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...more

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. more

These are my favorite Luftrausers

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 ...more

Review: Luftrausers

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.more

LUFTRAUSERS is just the right amount of crazy

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 ...more

How to correctly play Crypt of the NecroDancer

I've been playing Crypt of the NecroDancer, and now I fancy myself a pretty amazing player. The game hits Steam's Early Access program in just two days, and so I figured I'd impart my wisdom unto any new players who may be out there by making a hawt tipz video.more
