Luftrausers, developed by Vlambeer and published by Devolver Digital, is a side scrolling shot em up for Linux, OS X, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and Microsoft Windows.
One dark night, somewhere, one of the two developers at Vlambeer was suffering from a fever.
In a bid to soothe their woes, they played several hours of Lunar Lander, watched Top Gun and Dambusters back to back, then finished the evening with a plate of cheese before sinking into a troubled sleep.
In the morning, they made their fever dreams into a game.
That game was Luftrausers.
This manic side-scroller has more in common with old space shooters like Gravitar and Solar Jetman than it does with traditional arcade flying cabinets, but from the word go, it’s clear Luftrausers has what it takes to become a classic shooter.
