6d ago - MixedBag Cofounder Mauro Fanelli announced today that Futuridium EP Deluxe is coming to PS4 with details below.

To quote: Just a little over a month ago, we announced that our first game - the crazy fast-and-colourful space shooter, Futuridium - was coming to PS Vita in an all new, exclusive, greatly enhanced and expanded version titled Futuridium EP Deluxe.

And what was one of the first reactions we received from our dear PlayStation.Blog readers? "We want it on PS4, too! And fast!"

Duly noted. We just couldn't ignore such heartfelt appeals, and so after some help from the amazing European PlayStation team - and some wizardry (read: programming and boring stuff) - we can now announce that Futuridium EP Deluxe is coming soon to PS Vita and PS4, exclusively. Here's a little gameplay preview from the big console version:





For the readers not familiar with the game, Futuridium EP Deluxe is a fast, old-school shooter inspired mainly by the 8-bit classic Uridium, with an added hint of Zaxxon. Shake all that up in low-poly graphics, topped by a ton of fullscreen post processing effects, and served ice cold for your cube blasting pleasure.

8w ago - MixedBag Cofounder Mauro Fanelli shared a video and some audio tracks today from Futuridium EP Deluxe: a Psychedelic new PS Vita Shoot 'em Up below!

To quote: Hi readers! I'm Mauro Fanelli, cofounder of the two person italian indie studio MixedBag, and I'm super excited to be here today to announce that our first game, Futuridium EP, is coming to PS Vita in an all new, enhanced, expanded, turbo charged edition titled Futuridium EP Deluxe.

We started working on Futuridium as a side project with the idea of paying an homage to the retro classic Uridium, a 2D top-down shoot'em up by Andrew Braybrook (and one of our favorite Commodore 64 game from the 80s), with a total reinvention aimed to mix its fast paced action and the unique feeling of flying back and forth on enormous space dreadnoughts with full 3D gameplay and a retro, flat shaded look with tons of glitchy graphic effects.

We put together a prototype of the game with the basic game mechanics in place and... it worked! That's not always guaranteed in game development, so we continued to build on the formula, polish, play, rebalance, play a lot more, and, when we were presented with the opportunity to bring the game to PS Vita we were like... ok, it's a...

I'm also here to stock you up on some awesome tips for getting higher up on the various leaderboards. If you want to read even more info, check out last week's blog post.

AWESOME TIPS

1) It's always better to vent...

Venting makes the corresponding color blocks worth more points. For example, if you're left with a bunch of purple blocks ready for clearance, but some of them are blocking the purple vents, it's worth sacrificing those blocks to make the vents available, as triggering two purple vents will make your purple blocks worth a lot more points.

You'll know you've got it right when all your blocks are shaking wildly with excitement before you unleash the clearance!

2) Leave the star blocks until the clearance!

Star blocks are worth double points, so chip away all the other blocks in a level to leave as...
