Description

LUFTRAUSERS is a 2D dogfighting game about launching an experimental fighter plane from a submarine deep inside enemy territory and leaving behind a trail of style and burning wrecks everywhere it goes. Also the only game in which players can build & fly their own LUFTRAUSER.

History

The original LUFTRAUSER was a Flash-prototype created during a two-day jam and released for free as a 'Not Vlambeer'-game in 2011. The goal of LUFTRAUSER was to pilot a RAUSER while taking out as many hostile planes and boats as possible before eventually meeting a glorious & spectacular death. Since Serious Sam: The Random Encounter and GUN GODZ took over our schedule in the months following the LUFTRAUSER-release, we decided not to pursue improving the game at that time. However, in the office they had been constantly discussing the possibility of doing a full-scale LUFTRAUSER game. In April 2012, LUFTRAUSERS was announced.

Features

  • Sick gameplay that makes even the worst gamer feel like a proper ace all about destroying varied and challenging enemies with style.
  • Tasty endless arcade gameplay with a spicy layer of optional challenges.
  • Fully customizable RAUSERS, with over 255 deadly combinations.
  • Stylish, tight and beautiful WWII meets Thunderbirds presentation.
  • Realistic water physics.
  • A dynamic soundtrack by famous DJ Kozilek.
  • Infinite replayability and all that highscore madness.
