PixelJunk Shooter 2 in production

Q Games president announces sequel to last year's shoot-'em-up adventure; promises new features to the series.

The PixelJunk series has garnered much positive reception over the years for its uncomplicated gameplay, quirky design, and colourful visuals, with last year's PixelJunk Shooter being no exception. It looks like there's more PixelJunk on the way, with a sequel to Shooter officially confirmed today.

PixelJunk Shooter is getting a sequel.

President of Q Games Dylan Cuthbert announced that the follow-up title to last year's PixelJunk Shooter is currently in production. In a post made on the US PlayStation blog, Cuthbert told readers that PixelJunk Shooter 2 will not only be bigger than its predecessor, but will also introduce entirely new features to the PixelJunk series.

"We're busy implementing all the ideas that were left on the drawing board for the first game to make [PixelJunk] Shooter 2 as jam-packed full of crazy fun as possible," Cuthbert said in the post. "I'm pretty sure we won't make a [PixelJunk] Shooter 3 because everything and the kitchen sink (probably quite literally) is going into this game."

To get gamers ready for the sequel, Cuthbert also announced that Sony will be releasing a free demo of Cuthbert's favourite PixelJunk Shooter level on May 25--fans of the series will be pleased to know the level includes "explosive gas, magma, water, tons of cool enemies and volcanic eruptions."

There hasn't been a bad PixelJunk game yet. Shooter was awesome and I can't wait for the sequel.

"I'm pretty sure we won't make a [PixelJunk] Shooter 3 because everything and the kitchen sink (probably quite literally) is going into this game." . Level editor? Online multiplayer? Battle mode?

Shooter was the 1st game in the series that I was really excited for. I am currently playing it now and its amazing. They really need on-line co-op. I can't believe they didn't have it in the 1st game.

Glad to hear they are expanding on the ideas from the first game. I had alot of fun with it but I did feel there was alot more they could do with the brilliant ideas they were working with.
