Vlambeer Tease With Space Murder Prototype

Vlambeer’s trailer for Space Murder (below) suggests that the name is “still temp title” and I hope that’s not true, because the world needs a game called Space Murder. For now, at least, it has one, with Vlambeer releasing a flash prototype of their (previously abandoned) lo-fi space exploration game just here. Nothing all that special – a mixture of space exploration strategies and arena shooting – but it’s vaguely awesome to see the Super Crate Box team taking on the space game genre. I hope they choose to take it further. Go take a look. Some more info here.

Vlambeer’s next proper release for PC will be Luftrausers.

    This looks awesome! After more work it could be huge.

    SPACE MURDER does have a fabulous ring to it. It has just the right touch of overwrought-ness which lands it barely on the side of irony.

    Nice, love the concept AND the name!

    Man, I’d completely forgotten about this. It’s still looking great, and of course they’d be bonkers to change that title.

    Interesting. Looks like it had a lot of potential for quirkiness. :)

    I assume this must the prequel to ‘Space Funeral’.
