Develop your own Vlambeer clone with Vlambeer Clone Tycoon

Video game composer Rik Nieuwdorp of Claynote and web application developer Martijn Frazer created a browser game called Vlambeer Clone Tycoon where players, in the role of game developers, rip off Vlambeer titles.

In the game, players are tasked with cloning Vlambeer titles as close as possible without getting into legal trouble and releasing it before Vlambeer launches the original.

"We want to demonstrate how dismal it is to clone games by letting people experience this activity themselves,' the duo wrote on the game's website. "And what could possibly be a better way to experience something outside of your reality than through a game? That is why we have created Vlambeer Clone Tycoon, which is exactly that: a game in which the player assumes the role of a cloner with the single goal of ripping off Vlambeer as hard as possible."

The Dutch indie studio, developer of numerous titles such as Luftrausers, Nuclear ThroneRidiculous Fishing and Super Crate Box, usually releases a prototype of its game to the public for feedback. The development model opens the studio to iOS duplications of its games, such as Luftrausers clone SkyFar, an iOS action game, and Radical Fishing clone Ninja Fishing.
