Vlambeer are best known for their video games like Luftrausers, Nuclear Throne and Ridiculous Fishing. I’ve been enjoying something else they’ve done recently, though, and it’s something a bit more tangible: this big book all about the team and their history.
At 152 over-sized pages, it’s really two books in one: there’s a massive collection of big artwork spreads throughout, but there’s also a 20,000-word history of the studio to read as well, put together by Arjan Terpstra, who did a fantastic job on the big Killzone book that came out in 2016.
There are two versions available. One is $95/£77, comes in a giant box and includes a notebook and fancy print, along with signatures from Vlambeer’s Rami Ismail and Jan Willem Nijman. The other, at $40/£33, gets you just the book.
