PixelJunk Monsters 2 demo unleashed

The Lorax speaks for the trees, but Tikiman weaponizes the trees. In PixelJunk Monsters 2, you play as the spirit of the forest who has to repel waves of attacking monsters who have come to take your home and kidnap all of your friends -- which I think we can all agree is not cool, man. To fend off the impending flood of creatures, Tikiman…

I want to touch PixelJunk Monsters 2’s claymation world

The original PixelJunk Monsters feels like the product of a very different time in gaming. A simple, almost Flash-esque tower defense game, it still went on to became one of the first digitally distributed success stories on Sony's (at the time) cutting edge PlayStation 3. Over five years later it came to PC, and while reasonably well received, it never made much of a splash.…

Full Flow: PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate Out Now

The PixelJunk Shooter [official site] games are home to my favourite fluid simulation systems. In a time when digital boxes, barrels and bodies drop, flop and break in fascinating and convincing fashion, liquids are still depicted as still, glassy surfaces far too often. The two Shooter games - collected together in the new Ultimate release which marks the sequel's first appearance on PC - are…

Soup’s Up: Nom Nom Galaxy Released

As far as I can tell, Nom Nom Galaxy [official site] is an unlicensed video game adaptation of The Clangers. Where did the Soup Dragon get all her delicious soup from? The answer, suggests Nom Nom Galaxy, is a sprawling underground complex of automated factories and defenses, teeming with drones doing her bidding. The wildlife-juicing explore-o-build-a-craft-y-tower-defense formerly known as PixelJunk Inc. (and PixelJunk 1-6 before…

Pixel Junk: Nom Nom Galaxy Is A Destructible Soup Empire

PixelJunk creators Q-Games seem to be slowly realising their love for the PC. After a while of the PJ games dragging their heels to reach Freedom, their latest is appearing on PC before anything else. Well done - this is Correct. And that latest is Nom Nom Galaxy - a very Terraria-looking platform bizarreness, about making soup. Yes Cara, soup. It's on Steam Early Access…

Real-Based? Turn-Time? – Ex-Pixeljunkers’ Nova-111

The first thing I noticed about Nova-111 is that it has a full-blown, always on-screen Science Meter. That is a bonfide part of the game. "Alright," I thought to myself and probably said to some modern mutant wizard who is cursed with the blessing of hearing all human thoughts at once, "we're off to a solid start, but is this game good or just cute?" So…

Pixeljunk Inc. Looks Brothy Brilliant

All of RPS was distracted by a bee when Pixeljunk Inc. was announced in March, which is thoroughly embarrassing because I'd have loved to have known about it sooner. I only discovered it because some previews are starting to drift out and it sounds delightful: a co-operative game of soup-making and world terraforming. You build giant Rube Goldberg soup-making machines in what appears to be…

Hell’s Campbell’s: Pixeljunk Inc.

The Pixeljunk games have been one of the best reasons to power up Playstation: The Third for a good while now. Forget the quips of Drake, the mutilations of Kratos, and the red herrings and wild geese of Heavy Rain - Q-Games have been bringing experimental bundles of joy to the platform for years. Eden's arrival on Steam surprised me because I'd assumed the series…
