8w ago - MixedBag Cofounder Mauro Fanelli announced today alongside a video trailer that Futuridium EP Deluxe is coming to PS4 and PS Vita platforms this July.

Below are the details, to quote: Hi, fellow PlayStation fans. It's time for a little update on Futuridium EP Deluxe, our upcoming fast-paced, retro-inspired, super-colorful shoot-em-up.

The big news, first: we can finally announce that the Futuridium EP Deluxe will launch on PS4 and PS Vita in July.

The precise launch day is still to be determined, but you'll definitely be able to blast tons of cubes and blow up giant space dreadnoughts this Summer. So hold tight - the wait is almost over!





Futuridium is our first console game, and let's just say we got a bit carried away and we took our time to add lots of new features and a massive amount of exclusive content. At the heart of the Deluxe edition is the brand new Deluxe mode - a massive campaign featuring 50 different levels divided in five zones, with five bosses and five bonus areas.

There are no extra power-ups in Futuridium; you can only count on your skills. But to better equip you against the all-new odds you'll encounter in deep space, we added a turbo mode to your starship (How generous!)....

15w 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 [Register or Login to view links], 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.

22w 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 [Register or Login to view links], 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 [Register or Login to view links], 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...
