The Flock Dutch indie game comes out on August 21




The Flock, the first game of the Hilversum development studio Vogelsap comes on August 21 Despite being a multiplayer game, The Flock has a clear end and the game goes offline and then from the sale.

The Flock is an asymmetrical multiplayer game and go on sale in the Humble Store, which is a part of the proceeds to charity, and Steam. That happens on August 21, and the game will cost 16.99 euros. A publisher, the game does not; the game is funded by a grant from the Fund for Creative Industries and the Dutch Game Fund.

Every time a player dies in The Flock, the population decreases by 1. When the entire population is extinct, the game comes from the market, unravels the story with anyone who has bought game, and goes offline The Flock. The Humble Store Page of the game is to see that the current population is 215,358,973. It is still unclear how quickly that number will reach exactly zero.

The extinction Vogelsap concept has been implemented because it wanted to make a multiplayer game that “it is worth remembering,” says Jeroen van Hasselt, one of the developers of the game. “A multiplayer game can achieve immense heights, but then players lose their interest, and dies a multiplayer game almost always a quiet death. We want to correct that players wait for the end of this mutliplayergame in tension while they wonder what’s going to happen.”

The Flock began as a project of two students at the School of the Arts in Utrecht. The project was in this sense a great success, and after the game media attention began to donate to the project, the students put the development. Now people using multiple Dutch subsidies by thirteen men worked on the game.
