7w ago - Double Eleven Production Team Richard Snowdon announced that PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is coming to PS4 and PS Vita this Summer with details below.

To quote: All of us here at Double Eleven are excited to announce that PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is coming to PS4 and PS Vita this Summer, and we can finally start to talk about it!

PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is a twin-stick shooter that's as much about blasting things as it is about exploration, puzzle solving, and collecting things. Within Shooter Ultimate, players interact with environments that run an advanced fluid dynamics simulation. These interactions are needed to solve puzzles, overcome enemies, and progress through levels.

For those who remember the original PixelJunk Shooter games, Ultimate combines the campaigns of Shooter 1 and 2 into a single experience. It certainly doesn't stop there, as we've done a ton of work on top of that to make this the third game in the series!

So here's our list of nine things that hopefully make our PixelJunk Shooter worthy of the title "ultimate."

1. Full Visual Upgrade on PS4

When we were trying to decide what a PS4 version of Shooter should look like, we knew that it needed to remain true to that classic, razorsharp, vector-based aesthetic - which...

146w ago - President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert at Q-Games Limited has announced today that the PixelJunk Shooter 2 patch is now live on PSN.

To quote: Hey everyone! I am happy to announce a patch for PixelJunk Shooter 2. We€ve changed a few things. Read on for the full list:

€There was a bug where some enemies would spawn right on top of you giving you that awesome €insta-death€ you really don€t want in a game... well, we fixed it!

€The online connectivity has been tuned to allow you to hook up with other players much more easily. Try it out!

€If you get matched against a higher ranking player you get a nice large cash bonus (Q space bucks of course) if you win!

PixelJunk Shooter 2 Hits PSN Today with New Online Battle Mode

50°
164w ago - Q-Games Ltd President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert has confirmed that PixelJunk Shooter 2 hits PSN today with a new Online Battle Mode.

To quote: The sequel to the technically and critically acclaimed PixelJunk Shooter will be with us later today!

It continues where the original left off, leaving you trapped in the deep dark bowels of an enormous alien entity.

Fight through the backwash and encounter the weird and terrible monsters that are living in the alien€s gut, force your way through putrid stomach acid and strange slippery bubbly stuff, and be totally grossed out by thousands of iddy-biddy insects that come pouring out of strange pulsating larvae when you mix water with it.

Yes, this is a game you probably want to avoid playing immediately after eating, and you might feel a little queasy the next time you are staring down Sparrow-on-a-stick (a Kyoto traditional cruisine).

But wait... PixelJunk Shooter 2 isn€t all about dieting and worm control! It has vast new worlds to explore that aren€t part of an organism€s digestive track, and new technologies too, such as the Hungry Suit and the Light Suit and a whole load more.

Use the new R3 spin-attack to wipe out chains of enemies at a time and revel in the destructive mayhem...
