LUFTRAUSERS from Vlambeer Cleared for Take Off March 18


Pre-Orders Open for $10 Game and $750 Air Raid Pack

Independent game studio Vlambeer (Ridiculous Fishing, Nuclear Throne) and patriotic publisher Devolver Digital have announced that the much-anticipated realistic aerial dogfighting simulator LUFTRAUSERS will launch on PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam and Humble on the 18th of March.

“OH DEAR GOD FINALLY YES,” said Rami Ismail, 50% of developer Vlambeer.

Potential recruits and amateur rauser pilots can visit to learn more about the war effort, train on the original LUFTRAUSER web game, and pre-order LUFTRAUSERS on Steam and Humble for 10% off the $9.99 price.

The most patriotic of citizens and tycoons of industry that wish to help with the recruitment effort on a more grandiose level can invest in the $749.99 LUFTRAUSERS Air Raid Pack that yields 1 DRM-free download of the game and 100 giftable Steam keys. Purchasers of this special bundle of aerial firepower are encouraged to recruit new rauser pilots from their ranks of friends and aid in the war effort by any means necessary.

“I honestly thought LUFTRAUSERS released back in 2012,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker when reached for comment. “Ironically, I spent what I thought was LUFTRAUSERS royalties on a private jet.”


Bold Aerial Combat – White-knuckle battles against a crimson and cream sky harken back to the pure arcade shooters of the past with tight gameplay, ridiculous combos, and challenges that can only be mastered by the most elite Rauser pilots in the world.

Customizable Rausers – Unlock unique weapons, plane bodies, and propulsion systems to radically alter your fighter in over 125 deadly combinations. Each daring configuration not only radically alters how your Rauser handles and attacks but also rearranges the dynamic soundtrack crafted by KOZILEK.

Daring Missions – Make your fellow airmen proud as you tackle over 100 challenging missions from your commanding officers and face off against rival aces in a dogfight to the death.

Trophies and Achievements – You know, a little something to brag about on shore leave.
