Fans of retro-styled infectious HD gameplay, prepare to start dancing in the streets. Q Games’ Dylan Cuthbert has confirmed that PixelJunk Shooter 2 is in development.
We always knew more PJS was coming, but up until know we thought it might be in the form of DLC. And intriguingly, it looks like the lava, water and magnetic suits will be joined with some cool fresh duds to manipulate whatever new fancy fluid dynamics the Kyoto based studio have up their sleeves. Dylan states:
“Normally sequels are just a re-hashing of the ideas in the original, but for PixelJunk Shooter we still have a ton of ideas on the drawing board and the engine has lots of potential we want to use before moving onto our next idea. It would be a waste not to use it to try out more stuff.
“We managed to put in all the ship ‘suits’ that we thought up this time around but there will be a number of new suits to make use of some of the brand new ideas for fluid gimmicks you may or may not see sometime soon.”
Apart from Shooter 2, Q Games are also working on another title not part of the PixelJunk series.
