In early 2013, two Games & Interaction students of the HKU University of the Arts Utrecht (Jeroen van Hasselt, Bo Zonneveld) pitched a game design for a second year school project. The school accepted the pitch, and development on The Flock began. The team released a teaser trailer, and various popular gaming websites picked it up. Interest was sparked.

Development continued throughout the summer vacation. The game was also exhibited at Gamescom in Cologne, VMGS in London and the INDIGO Showcase in Utrecht. Players reacted positively to the game. The Flock also won the ‘Best Student Game’ Dutch Game Award. After the summer vacation, the game was again pitched for school, but this time as a third year project. Vogelsap was also granted a government subsidy to further develop The Flock.

Recently, the game was playable at the Indie Prize Showcase at Casual Connect Europe in Amsterdam. There it was nominated for the ‘Most Promising Game’ award. The game will also be playable at the upcoming Indievelopment conference in Utrecht.
