9w 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!

Sony on 5 Reasons Shoot Many Robots is Better with Friends

110w ago - Today Lead Designer Josh Glavine has shared 5 reasons Shoot Many Robots is better with friends via Sony's PlayStation Blog.

You can play with up to four people cooperatively online. If you don't already have an excuse to make three friends and kill some robots, we've provided five:

More, More, More

It's a simple formula. As you add more players to Shoot Many Robots, you'll encounter more robots, more explosions, and more chaos. Playing with co-op partners increases the number of robots in each level which means more things to kill... and more ways to kill them.

And more dead robots means more Nut pickups, which enable you to buy new guns and gear. All of the randomly dropping items like powerups and loot also drop more frequently. In co-op, everything is just more fun.

Co-opetition

At the end of each mission, the players with the highest kill counts are rewarded with more Nuts. This means you must work cooperatively to complete a mission, while also competing for the most kills - hence, "co-opetition."

Pick-Me-Ups

In co-op, you can revive your partners if they are downed. Having squadmates...
