What happens when you pour water over lava? You get steam. I think when Q-Games’ Pixeljunk Shooter came out for the PS3 in 2009, where the player manipulates the levels using molten rock, water, and a magnetic fluid that I’m going to call “Polly”, they were dropping a hint that it would eventually end-up on Steam.

The next Pixeljunk game, working title “PixelJunk 1-6″, has been confirmed as a PC game (via Kotaku). On the game’s site the developers explain that they want to try something different with the development of this new title: “Every week expect to see our development logs, concepts, technical notes and more as we tinker away on PixelJunk 1-6. Most importantly, you’re welcome to join in! We love chatting with you guys, so as always we’ll be lurking around here to answer any questions and take suggestions. We haven’t even thought of a name yet…”
The game will be co-op and have “a gajillion” robots. That’s the first image of it up there. We’re intrigued.
