Vlambeer are best known for their video games like Luftrausers, Nuclear Throne and Ridiculous Fishing. I've been enjoying something else they have done recently, though, and it's something a bit more tangible: this big book all about the team and their history.

Someone made a game about that: now you too can rip off Vlambeer games (like Ridiculous Fishing) and get away with it. Heh.
Purchase the Humble Mobile Bundle 3, with its Rymdkapsel and Epoch goodness, beat the average price for the pay-what-you-want pack, and all the Ridiculous Fishing you could ever want is yours.
Two days ago, dev studio RubiqLab found themselves the subject of much scorn, thanks to the unseemly resemblance between their game SkyFar and Vlambeer’s long-ago-announced Luftrausers. They responded to their critics by saying that they’ve been working on SkyFar for a year and cited US copyright law. Now, RubiqLab is accusing Vlambeer of copying.
The game isn't called Ordinary Fishing, after all. It isn't called By-The-Books Fishing either. No, it's called Ridiculous Fishing. So it stands to reason that if you download this game, you will be expecting to do some fishing, and for it to be ridiculous. Good news: That's exactly what you'll get.
From Vlambeer, creators of Super Crate Box -- well heck, that opening bit alone is convincing enough, but look at the video anyway. Ridiculous Fishing hits iOS on March 14.
Vlambeer's Super Crate Box -- which you can play now, for free -- is coming to Apple's iPhone, iPod touch and iPad next month, thanks to the porting prowess of Halfbot (developer of The Blocks Cometh, FYI). Watch and see why it might be worth your dollar(s).
