Q Games To Announce New PixelJunk Title Next Week
If you're at all familiar with previous PixelJunk franchises, you will probably respond to this news thusly: "ooooh, cool."
As reported by the MTV Multiplayer blog, a recent Sony PlayStation press invitation for the Game Developers Conference included the new project from Q Games, which has already produced PixelJunk Racers and PixelJunk Monsters for the PlayStation Network. Whatever this project is, it's likely another entry in the popular and critically acclaimed downloadable series, and we'll hear all about it in San Francisco next week. Lead creator Dylan Cuthbert will fill us in on the 26th, and as fans of these entertaining little games, we can't wait to hear about it! If you have yet to try a PixelJunk title - perhaps you're at least intrigued by the silly title...? - now may be the time to give one a shot. We've also heard about the possibility of PixelJunk Monsters for the PSP, so maybe Q Games will make that announcement at GDC as well; handheld users should definitely get a chance at playing the game. One should always keep an open mind...
We'll let you know as soon as Q Games pipes up with their new project; this is one of those teams that can always surprise you with their flair and creativity. If you're looking for ingenuity, we always tell you that the PSN is a great place to search. Just look at all the original titles we already have!
