Luftrausers To Raid The Sepia Skies Later This Year

Indie developer Vlambeer and Devolver Digital are teaming up to unleash the power of Luftrausers across the skies. Don’t know what a Luftrauser is? That’s alright. It just happens to be  “the most interesting engineering achievement of mankind ever.”

To break that explanation down further, Luftrausers are warplanes created by the minds behind Vlambeer and can be customized by players with over 125 outstandingly deadly combinations. For a few more juicy tidbits about Luftrausers, check this out:

  • Brave and Bold – White-knuckle aerial battles against a crimson and cream

sky harken back to the pure arcade shooters of the past with tight gameplay,
ridiculous combos, and unlimited fun.

  • Custom Luftrausers – Select from unique weapons, plane bodies, and

propulsion systems to radically alter your fighter in over 125 deadly
combinations. Each combination changes both how the rauser handles and
attacks but also the music soundtrack to your mission.

  • Confidential Missions – Make your fellow countrymen proud as you take on one

of dozens of missions from your commanding officers and face off against
rival aces in a dogfight to the death.

  • Stylish Dog Fighting – Vlambeer’s unmistakable visual style, super tight

controls, and the driving beats of DJ Kozilek create a beautifully intense
mission each time you take to the skies.

Luftrausers is set to release later this year for both the PC and Mac. Home consoles can expect to see the arcade shooter some time in 2013. The price point, which I admit caused me a slight heart attack, is set at $5,000. Hopefully, the promise of change in price will be fulfilled.
