Sick beats is the only reason I am so interested in this game.

When I saw the faux German title I knew this was going to be a Dutch game. Looks and sounds pretty cool. Also nice to see the Devolver logo again after Hotline Miami.

I played the free version of this. The boats were pretty difficult.

Sure hope I get to play this before the Liberals attack it for being offensive.

Vlambeer with buttons is the best.

Oh yes, the liberals and their PC crew. Meanwhile the conservatives are off being all progressive. It's right in the name!

Huh, no this doesn't look like anything I want to play, but good luck Vlambeer.

I didn't know they were still making gameboy games.

Please, "Nazi" is such a loaded term. We prefer "National Socialist".

Fuck me. I mean, say what you want about the tenets of national socialism, dude. At least it's an ethos.

You must not follow the IGF! (or read Patrick's news posts)

great music. I agree.

why is it called 'Luftrausers'? Does it mean something special in dutch, since vlambeer are based in NL?

Because it sure doesn't mean anything in german; anything that makes sense anyway. ^^

Am I missing something? Does anybody know?

Oh man, I thought it said it too, would be way cooler.

Posted by Wuddel

"rauser" is not a german word. FYI

I am not sure if I would like it more or less if the film reel grain was in the game.

Edited by Pvtmiller

I played this at SXSW, it was amazing. I can't wait for it to come out.

Posted by NovaDraconis

I have to say: really loved the music!

A day later and this song is still stuck in my head. It is Kozilek, but I can't find anywhere to buy it yet.

Posted by Ghost_Cat

All in.

@fusion42: @wuddel: Right, but it's a play on "Luftwaffe." Maybe there's more to it than that, but so it is.

@blaineblaine: I believe you missed the specific National Socialist Party reference...

also, this game looks okay. Music and art will be rad, and the customization will be awesome. Usually, dogfighting isn't something I enjoy, but I'd have said the same about Ridiculous Fishing - A Tale of Redemption, so...

Thanks socrates, i know, im german. and im tellin' ya. It doesn't make any sense. ^^ Not much of a play if you combine arbitrary words, right? :D

Anyway, 'Luft' means 'air' in german; 'rauser' - is not a word at all; but 'raus' means out, so 'Luftrausers' literally means sth like the 'air-outters'. Utter nonsense ;))

I mean this game is alright, probably gets more eyeballs because of the Nazi connotations though.

Gotta say, as a german myself, sometimes i wish when s.o. references something specific from history, they don't do it just for show and thrill. 'Luftrausers' is such a case i believe. Lol.

PSN seems to have completely overtaken XBLA as the platform of choice for awesome smaller games. Two years ago, I never would've thought that possible, and Microsoft largely have themselves to blame for it.

@fusion42: "Luft"-waffe is the German Air Force, and "Rauser" is a style-germification of the the english word "rouser" as in "rabble-rouser". So it's 3/8 english / 5/8 german (1/4 + 1/8 becaue of the "raus" instead of "rouse").

Edited by machinerebel

The music and sound seem pretty great. I'll be interested to see how the game plays, as the video makes to look super hectic. Love the visual style though.
