Futuridium EP Deluxe
The retro shooter game Futuridium EP Deluxe has 50 levels

The PS4 and the PS Vita have been hit by a wave of indie titles over the last few months, with Sony serving some of them up as PS Plus Free games on both consoles. One of the more interesting titles from the indie world happens to be MixedBag Games' Futuridium EP Deluxe. The studio's co-founder Mauro Fanelli spoke about a few game-related things in a recent interview.

When asked what the inspiration behind the game was, he said, "We really didn't think about it. We were developing our 'big' game, the action adventure format that is coming out at a later date, and there was the opportunity to do a classic inspired game for a one month long game jam in Italy."

"Since we had some ideas about a low poly shoot 'em up with some gameplay twists, we just did it, first as a free PC/Mac game, then as a more complete iOS port and, finally as a fully fledged game on PS4 and PS Vita. Since we love the genre, it was just natural for us to do it, and we are really happy with the results."

And for those of you wondering if the makers have any cross-buy plans for the game, then here was Fanelli's response. "Yes! Futuridium is cross-buy, and it features cross leaderboards between the two platforms."

And for those of you wondering how large the game is, the new campaign is "50 levels long, divided in five different areas, with five bosses and five bonus levels."
