Wasteland Kings is the newest game from Ridiculous Fishing dev

Friday, 16th August 2013 01:09 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Vlambeer has announced its newest game, Wasteland Kings, a “roguelike-like” for PC.

Destructoid reports the minimalist title has players battling monsters in randomly-generated worlds. The arcade style-action is modified by weapon pick ups and mutant abilities.

The indie developer has decided to draw back the curtain on development this time around, streaming work-in-progress through its Twitch channel.

“We always said that being open is the best way to exist as an indie developer, and we felt like taking that to the extreme. It also just sounds like a really fun experiment,” Vlambeer’s Rami Ismail said.

Wasteland Kings, which apparently “feels like Vlambeer”, will be on show at the PAX Prime Indie Megabooth and should hit Steam Early Access in a few weeks.

Vlambeer is also responsible for Ridiculous Fishing, Luftrausers, Super Crate Box and the best game ever made.

    Damn, that was unexpected. I’ll definitely look out for that.

    It’s always good to see a new, modern rogue-like. Don’t get me wrong, classic / uber-complex ones are also great but some of the new ones are pretty much god tier in terms of awesomeness (Spelunky, Binding of Isaac).

    Would like to see more this on Vita. Good handheld gaming.

    Yeah Rogue-like is in vogue currently and whilst I love something like Angband for the depth and complexity the variety on offer now is very good.

    Everything gets called a roguelike these days. Most often it’s really just a procedurally generated arcade game with permadeath.
