Q-Games Reveals PixelJunk Shooter 2 for PS3 in Full Production

204w ago - Q-Games Ltd. President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert has revealed today to fans that PixelJunk Shooter 2 for PS3 is now in full production.

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 PixelJunk series in general and will be bigger than the first game!

We're busy implementing all the ideas that were left on the drawing board for the first game to make Shooter 2 as jam-packed full of crazy fun as possible...

I'm pretty sure we won't make a Shooter 3 because everything and the kitchen sink (probably quite literally) is going into Shooter 2. Keep your eyes glued to the Blog (in-between playing PixelJunk games of course) for more info on this in the future!

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...
