Luftrausers

Vlambeer, the Dutch duo that took the indie gaming world by storm with Super Crate Box, have just announced a new game they're working on: Luftrausers. The game will be based off a project that the team worked on back in 2011, Luftrauser, which you can play right here. It was a relatively simple 2D dogfighting game that Vlambeer now intends to blow out of the water with a much more full-featured release.

Vlambeer, the Dutch duo that took the indie gaming world by storm with Super Crate Box just announced a new game they're working on: Luftrausers.

The game will be based off a project that the team worked on back in 2011, Luftrauser, which you can play right here. It was a relatively simple 2D dogfighting game that Vlambeer now intends to blow out of the water with a much more full-featured release.

Vlambeer's Rami Ismail provided Polygon the original pitch document for the game, so you can get a better sense of what they're going for. The art was done by Paul Veer and Roy Nathan de Groot, while the soundtrack (which you can sample here) comes from KOZILEK.

Luftrausers

Vlambeer isn't announcing any platforms for Luftrausers just yet, save for its availability on Flash. The release date is also strictly TBD at present.

Luftrausers isn't the only game currently in the mix for Vlambeer. The team is still working to finish up Ridiculous Fishing and they even revealed a new, exploration-based space sim that's still in the prototyping phase (based off of a previous work called, amusingly, Space Murder).
