The Sepia Skies Are ‘Sploding In LUFTRAUSERS

The creators of the Serious Sam series, Devolver Digital and Vlameer, have teamed up once again. This time, they’re taking to the sepia toned skies! In LUFTRAUSERS, you get to pilot your own custom ‘rauser’ and take down your enemies both in the air and the sea in beautiful 8-bit styled sepia tones.

“Developed by Dutch duo Vlambeer (Super Crate Box, Radical Fishing) LUFTRAUSERS will revolutionize the arcade-style aerial combat shooter genre with simple controls and deep gameplay.”

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.

 

It looks to give you the same insane odds as the Serious Sam titles dish out. Looking at it another way, it’s a 360° bullet hell game. In sepia.

LUFTRAUSERS will be hitting PC and Mac sometime later this year, and then to consoles sometime in 2013. Currently, the price point is set at an attractive $5,000. [Yes, five thousand dollars.] They say that the dates and price are subject to change, but I’m going to start raiding some mall fountains, just in case.

Bryan Todd [aka DieselBT] -- This is where I'm supposed to say something clever about myself. Let's pretend I did, and it conveniently mentions all of my top interests, such as anime, video games, crazy gadgets, electronic music, voice acting, sound editing, and countless other ridiculously fascinating topics. I also like to write stuff about things, which is why I'm here.

...That, and I like your shirt.
