PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate on it’s way!

Hey Folks,

There’s been a lot of good  (and a few wild ) guesses today as to what we have been up to, and unfortunately it’s not Tikiman Saga Ultra HD (this time around) ! The good news is however that both  Q-Games and ourselves are really proud to announce that this summer PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is coming to PSN on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita!

For those of you that haven’t played any of the Shooters on PS3 or PC, Ultimate is twin stick shooter that is as much about action as it is about exploration, and puzzle solving. Players interact with environments that run an advanced fluid dynamics simulation needed to solve puzzles, overcome enemies, and progress through many unique levels. Learning how to combine water, lava, gas, magnetic oil and even stomach acid with your ships special power-ups is essential to progressing into the unpredictable depths of the planet Apoxus Prime.

For those of you that do remember the original PixelJunk Shooter games, Ultimate at it’s heart combines the campaigns of Shooter 1 and 2 into one flowing narrative. That is just the beginning, as we have done a ton of stuff to Ultimate to make it a worthy third title in the series. Richard Snowdon from our production team has given PlayStation Blog the skinny on why we hope we have made the ultimate version. So do have a look here.

IGN has the exclusive announcement so feel free to head on over and have a look!

Shooter Ultimate is having it’s first preview on March 7th at the upcoming BitSummit MMXIV in Kyoto at both Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia and Q-Games’ booths.

PixelJunk Shooter is now available on PC, MAC and Linux!

Double Eleven announced the impending release of PixelJunk Shooter earlier this month, as part of their on going collaboration with Kyoto based developer Q-Games. The day has finally arrived to flick the switch from pre-order to launch and Shooter is now live!

Today, the indie-developer and publisher has brought the original PixelJunk Shooter to PC, Mac and Linux. This simultaneous, triple platform release also serves as milestone for Double Eleven, who has been building it’s operations to allow it this level of coordinated release.

In PixelJunk™ Shooter, players pilot their spacecraft through a range of cavernous environments in a bid to save the scientists trapped underground. Making your way through the game requires you to solve environmental puzzles by manipulating fire, ice, water and even a strange black magnetic liquid. All while coming under fire from a vast range of enemies and all set to a buttery soundtrack!

Double Eleven’s first update to the PixelJunk franchise was PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate which has earned a respectable 87% on Metacritic.

PixelJunk Shooter is available via Steam and selected partners on the 11th of November. The game is on sale for $8.99/£5.99/€6.99 with a special launch discount to celebrate the release for all those who have been waiting for the game.

PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate is coming to Steam, with pre-orders available now!

Following the news of the collaboration between Double Eleven and PixelJunk creators Q-Games, we are excited to announce that, PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate is making its way to Steam very soon!

This edition of the tower defence classic will create the definitive PixelJunk™ Monsters experience for Steam Fans. It will be available on PC initially, with Mac and Linux to follow.

Dylan Cuthbert, Q-Games CEO said “We are delighted to see PixelJunk Monsters hitting Steam with all of the content, features and functionality that we have created over the years in one package.”

In PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate, players control Tikiman who must protect his helpless babies from waves of incoming monsters. You’ll build weapon towers in the right places and at the right time in order to kill enemy monsters and earn coins and gems. These can be spent on creating more towers, upgrading existing ones, or to research powerful new towers. Monsters come thicker and faster as the waves advance, building the legendary challenge the game has been known for giving.

In addition to the single player story mode, PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate will leverage the Steamwork’s Cloud technology for online play, as well as Auto-Updating, Leaderboards, Achievements and more. Additional announcements will be made nearer to release!

It has been a rollercoaster moving into the publishing arm of the business and getting our first title – PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD for PlayStation® Vita – published independently, so moving onto Steam shortly after has been awesome! It marks another milestone for our studio, being our first PC title ever released. Steam has been a great partner throughout the development of Monsters, and also in seeing it out this summer.

PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate is slated for worldwide release on August 26th and pre-orders are available now on PC via Steam, with a 15% discount until the game releases on August 26th.
