Arjan Terpstra, Maarten Brands, Ruben Brands

 

Dutch indie games studio Vlambeer quickly established itself as a leading name in arcade-style action video games with titles like UltraBugs, Nuclear Throne, Ridiculous Fishing, LUFTRAUSERS and Super Crate Box.


This official 178 page Vlambeer art and history book chronicles the meteoric rise of the two-man studio and the small band of contributing artists, coders and composers who helped build some of the most memorable indie games of the past years. '120 Years of Vlambeer & Friends. Bringing back arcade games since 1896' not only explains the game design ideas at the root of the games, but also takes an in-depth look at their visual and audio design. This art book covers all of the Vlambeer games (jam games included) and highlights key details. An in-depth 20.000 word history, based on interviews with Rami Ismail, Jan Willen Nijman and many others documents the studio’s inception and rise to fame, and the many obstacles the studio faced in the first six years of its existence.
