PixelJunk Eden Summary
Developer Q-Games is known for their digital releases through the PlayStation Network, which is why their latest project 1-6 has given fans of the studio such a stark awakening; it's for PC.
Specifically 1-6 will be released through Steam, because it "gives us the freedom" to be "completely transparent" in the development process. It's the "best platform around" right now for iteration.
Sony has announced that for the next week, in preparation for the upcoming PixelJunk 4AM, there will be a blowout of PixelJunk titles on PlayStation Network starting the 8th May for a week. Some of the games will be as low as $1.
Another of Q-Games' PixelJunk titles will be arriving on PC after enjoying exclusivity on the PlayStation Network. This time, the developer's psychedelic PixelJunk Eden will be hitting Steam on the 2nd February.
PixelJunk developer Q-Games has not one, not two but three of their titles they'll be showcasing at E3 2011 which kicks of next week in Los Angeles.
CEO Dylan Cuthbert jokes it has to be "some kind of record" for a small studio like Q-Games. Music-based PixelJunk Lifelike is confirmed as one of them.
Dylan Cuthbert, boss of PixelJunk, has said Sony are "running around patching holes" right now with "something more concrete to say" in a week or two.
He believes Sony will need to compensate studios, or help them out somehow given the PSN outage costing them revenue. PixelJunk is predominantly online.
