Vlambeer, the Dutch indie studio behind Super Crate Box and Radical Fishing, showed off an early game clip for a new and small project it whipped together during "an empty week": Space Murder (temporary title). The team is actually looking for new name suggestions, preferably not using the word "space."

It is a space opera game, though, and it looks like players travel from planet to planet, making stops to buy weapon upgrades for their starship and fighting robot overlords/malicious space beasts in shoot'em battles along the way. It looks very fun!

The studio points out that the graphics you see here are very unfinished, as it likely has a lot more work to put into the project. Game designer Jan Willem Nijman comments, "We managed to get some very famous and skilled people on board to help with art and music!"
