The Luftwaffe was the aerial warfare branch of the German Wehrmacht during World War II. Luftrausers means… something. Luft in German is “air”, and Raus is German for “out”. So “Airouters”, I guess? Or something with clearing out the sky? I don’t know. All I know is this game has me “araused” in the nearly four hours I’ve put into it, and I’m ready to go back for more.
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.
The skies will be set aflame as indie development thugs Vlambeer and worldwide gaming cartel Devolver Digital join forces on the upcoming stylish arcade shooter LUFTRAUSERS. Ace pilots around the world will be able to customize their very own “rauser” and battle wily enemy fighters amongst the clouds or charge colossal battleships scattered across the open seas.
“LUFTRAUSERS is the only game in which players can build and fly a LUFTRAUSER – the most interesting engineering achievement of mankind ever. Flying one is said to be the most amazing feeling and we wanted to bring that experience to everyone,” said Rami Ismail, co-founder of Vlambeer.
