Wondering where the Curve Fever games come from? You’ve come to the right place. We’ll take you through the official history of “Curve Fever”.
1995 – Achtung, die Kurve!
“Achtung, die Kurve!” is a DOS-game, created and released in 1995 by Filip Oščádal and Kamil Doležal. Players are constantly growing lines, trying to cut off opponents. “Achtung, die Kurve!” gathered a small, passionate fanbase over the years.
2010 – Achtung, die Kurve! Flash Remake
As a fan of the old DOS game, Geert van den Burg develops a new vision for “Achtung, die Kurve!”. He creates a more accessible version of the game in Flash and adds a new game play mode to the game that includes power-ups. This new version is called “Achtung, die Kurve! Flash Remake” and was playable on achtungdiekurve.net. “Achtung, die Kurve! Flash Remake” is released in april 2010.
2011-2014 Work on Achtung, die Kurve! 2 and rebranding to Curve Fever
“Achtung, die Kurve! Flash Remake” drew a large following through word-of-mouth and Geert decided to make a sequel featuring online multiplayer. Geert partnered with Robin Brouns; the artist for the new game. “Achtung, die Kurve! 2” was released in november 2011. The games were rebranded for an international audience soon after, as “Curve Fever” and “Curve Fever 2”.
From 2011 through 2014 more features are added to Curve Fever 2, including team matches, various new powerups, different colors in the game, rankings and events such as monthly tournaments.
2015 – 2016 Work on Curve Fever 3
In 2015 Geert assembles a team and begins working on a new version of Curve Fever in HTML5. The company moves to Breda and “Curve Fever 3” is released in September 2016. It features a strong player progression as well as other new gameplay modes including quick “knockout games”, and playing games for stakes in arenas. Other key features include custom curves and power-ups.
2017 – Hidden Monster Games and the next Curve Fever
In January 2017, Geert renames the studio “Hidden Monster Games” and in April they move to their current location in central Amsterdam, beginning pre-production on a all new “Curve Fever”, called “Curve Fever Pro”. Curve Fever Pro is currently under development and slated for release on February 26th, 2018!
