Dutch indie developer Pascal Bestebroer, who goes by the moniker “Orangepixel,” is bringing his previous works to PlayStation Vita, starting with retro run-and-gun shooter Gunslugs, he announced today.

As Bestebroer points out in his PlayStation Blog post, the developing has been making games since 2004, starting with older mobile platforms like J2ME and moving to Android and iOS more recently. Together with porting studio Abstraction Games, Bestebroer is bringing his unique brand of old-school evoking games to Sony’s handheld platform.

According to Bestebroer, the “key elements” to an Orangepixel game is that it look, feel, and sound “retro” while sporting modern design sensibilities, and that its notably challenging.

The Dutch dev describes the first Orangepixel game coming to Vita, Gunslugs, as “a chaotic run-n-gun style game” that spans six worlds along with two levels to each world, several bonus worlds, and features six unlockable characters.

Gunslugs will arrive on PlayStation Vita sometime this month.
