To quote: Well, I hope everyone has recovered from the PixelJunk sale bonanza we had last month - as far as I could tell people were buying up PixelJunk titles by the tenfold which is great!

For those that haven't already heard, PixelJunk Shooter 2 is in full production, full steam ahead, anchors away and all that... commotion to that order. I can't say much about it now, but it will have some features that are new to the [Register or Login to view links] in general and will be bigger than the first game!

And for those who still aren't sure about the awesomeness PixelJunk Shooter really (no, really!) is, we're going to release a free demo of one of my favourite levels in the game...
