One could assume the biggest question Q-Games (creator of the PixelJunk series) gets is "where the hell is PixelJunk Monsters 2?!" I guess they got sick of having to repeat themselves, as Q-Games tackles that and more in a brand new FAQ for the company.

Among some interesting talk of potential future games (including the lost PixelJunk Dungeons concept), Q-Games mentions another hot-button issue: where their name comes from, as well as the etymology of "PixelJunk" itself.

So what's the big mystery? Funnily enough, the "Q" actually comes from James Bond's famous gadget creator, and PixelJunk was the founder's online nickname. Yep, it's that simple!

You can read about their origins and more on their official FAQ, which I highly recommend, because their games are among some of the best in the industry. Here's hoping for a PixelJunk Monsters 2 (and more) sooner than later, but in the meantime, get ready for PixelJunk 1-6.
