Utrecht, October 22nd - Dutch students-gone-indie studio Vlambeer has just released its freeware PC title "Super Crate Box", now available for download at www.supercratebox.com.
The relentless arcade title has received unanimous praise for its minimalistic but efficient gameplay, reminding many of the golden age of arcade games, when all that mattered was getting on that highscore list. Minecraft creator Markus Persson called the game "simple but brilliant" and popular PC-gaming blog Rock, Paper, Shotgun said "Super Crate Box is like condensed milk, only with fun instead of milk".
Vlambeer is also hosting a in-game contest - the highest score on the 'SFMT Official' difficulty on the Construction Yard level by November 14th will win a surprising wealth of Super Crate Box merchandise in a super-limited collectors edition of the game. Only three of such collectors editions will ever be created, the first available through the already launched Papercraft contest.
Vlambeer is a new Dutch Indie game studio consisting of game design students Rami Ismail and Jan Willem Nijman, who together decided to take a plunge and go and start a studio instead of taking classes. Their recent work includes Radical Fishing and the upcoming Super Crate Box.
