PixelJunk Inc. is a game about soup and friendship

In case you aren't aware, PixelJunk Inc. looks to be the raddest game ever. Imagine Castlevania, Metal Slug, Pikmin, and a tower defense all rolled into one. Also, soup everywhere. Naturally, when I got the opportunity to talk to the minds...

Pixeljunk FAQ photo

The meaning of Q-Games' company name is revealed

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...

Q-Games explains why PixelJunk 1-6 is coming to PC

It's still unclear what exactly PixelJunk 1-6 is, but it sure looks pretty. The game was announced for PC, which didn't sit well with some fans of Q-Games' prior work. "Given our history with Sony I think people are being rather hasty in th...

Indie Royale bundle has PixelJunk Eden, Escape Goat, more

I respect what the folks behind the Indie Royale have been doing, but for me personally, many of the bundles haven't stood out as must-buys. This new one, however -- hell yes! It's got my full support. For less than $5, you can nab PixelJun...

Review: PixelJunk Eden (PC)

At this point, I think there's at least one game in the ongoing PixelJunk series for everyone. For the longest time, PixelJunk Monsters was the obvious go-to choice for me, but I've since flirted with the idea of giving PixelJunk Eden the t...

PixelJunk debuts on Steam with Eden

Preview: PixelJunk 4am

The music/rhythm genre is full of experiences that a reductive person might call “performance simulators.” In essence, games like Rock Band lay out a track of notes to hit -- whether with your voice or a controller that resemble...

Review: PixelJunk SideScroller

No, PixelJunk SideScroller is not old-school. Nor is it retro -- OK, maybe a little. But, more than that, it’s a completely contemporary game full of visuals and ideas that feel fresh and original within videogame’s oldest gen...

October 25 is PixelJunk SideScroller day in the US

No, it's not PixelJunk Monsters 2, but that doesn't mean PixelJunk SideScroller isn't worth obsessing over. On the Q-Games Twitter feed, we're told this latest PJ title is set for a North American PlayStation Network release on Tuesday, Oct...

Preview: PixelJunk SideScroller

The title of PixelJunk Shooter was a bit misleading. It was much more of an exploration and puzzle game than an actual shooter. It was a great game (along with its sequel), but not exactly what genre fans wanted. Sidecroller, however, is...

E3: First look at PixelJunk Lifelike

E3: PixelJunk SideScroller revealed

Curiously absent from Sony's press conference earlier today was the announcement of a new title in Q Games' PixelJunk series. Such a thing does exist and expands the franchise into yet another classic genre of videogames, the side...

Q-Games is bringing three titles to E3 2011

Finally! E3 will be when we figure out just what the heck PixelJunk Lifelike is all about. The teaser sure was weird and all, but that dates back to September. Guess Q-Games founder Dylan Cuthbert wasn't lying when he said we'd get "No more...

Review: PixelJunk Shooter 2

My relationship with Q-Games and their wonderful PixelJunk series of downloadable games has followed a very similar path to that of courting a real-life future companion. After their first PixelJunk game, Racers, I felt something. It wasn&r...
