Dropping in clouds – In support of the free Take On Noisecontrollers DLC for Bohemia Interactive’s Take On Helicopters, the studio released a new developer’s blog on the unique collaboration with the famous DJ and producer duo. The article sheds some more light on the behind-the-scenes process of this remarkable venture.

In Noisecontrolled, Joris-Jan van ‘t Land, who created the Noisecontrollers DLC in his free time and is the Project Lead on Take On Helicopters, explains how the idea for mixing a helicopter game with hardstyle music came to be. He also vividly describes how it eventually tied in with one of the most popular hardstyle festival in the Netherlands, Defqon.1 2012.

Project Lead Joris-Jan van ‘t Land:

“At first glance it may not seem like a logical marriage: electronic music and helicopter games. The links between the two themes came from the personal interests of myself and several others who helped along the way. With this project I did not set out to optimize profits or find the biggest target audience. It’s important to keep in mind that TON was not developed in Bohemia Interactive’s work hours. Those involved contributed in their own time and because they wanted to deliver something cool. I’ll just go ahead and say it: this was purely selfish, and I’m proud to have done it!”
