Ridiculous Fishing developer Vlambeer’s 2D dogfighting game Luftrausers won’t be released before early 2014 “unless a miracle happens,” according to a post on the company’s official website.
“The way we worked with Luftrausers, in hindsight, wasn’t really optimal,” reads the company’s latest news roundup post. “We assumed that certification would be harsh, but didn’t expect it to take more than a month or two. While a part of our team was already focusing on Nuclear Throne and Ridiculous Fishing, we kept being pulled back to fix things or add last minute changes to the game to fit within the requirements. Switching between projects in such different states mentally is extremely exhausting, and a lot of our time was spent orienting on where the game was and where it needed to go.”
According to the developers, the title still has QA and FQA approval to meet before its release.
Announced earlier this year for PC, PS3, and Vita, Luftrausers is a follow up to the flash-based browser game Luftrauser. it will feature over 125 combinations of weapons, bodies, and propulsion systems from which players can customize their fighter planes.
