PixelJunk Shooter 2 in Full Production!

134 11

Well, I hope everyone has recovered from the PixelJunk sale bonanza we had last month – as far as I could tell people were buying up PixelJunk titles by the tenfold which is great!

For those that haven’t already heard, PixelJunk Shooter 2 is in full production, full steam ahead, anchors away and all that… commotion to that order. I can’t say much about it now, but it will have some features that are new to the PixelJunk series in general and will be bigger than the first game! We’re busy implementing all the ideas that were left on the drawing board for the first game to make Shooter 2 as jam-packed full of crazy fun as possible… I’m pretty sure we won’t make a Shooter 3 because everything and the kitchen sink (probably quite literally) is going into Shooter 2. Keep your eyes glued to the Blog (in-between playing PixelJunk games of course) for more info on this in the future!

And for those who still aren’t sure about the awesomeness PixelJunk Shooter really (no, really!) is, we’re going to release a free demo of one of my favourite levels in the game on May 25th. The level has explosive gas, magma, water, tons of cool enemies, volcanic eruptions and you can wreak all kinds of havoc with the fluid physics. This will push you over the edge to get the game!

  • Thank you! You just made my day :)

  • Cool, I’m looking forward to playing another great PixelJunk game. Although I’m still holding out hope for some more content for Monsters on the PS3.

  • Best news of the week. Now, I must sit on a 30min bus ride to get my copy of Red Dead Redemption. OUTLAWS TO THE END!

  • Are we going to see bubble physics now? Awesome!

  • Yes! Dylan your games are amazing, I own them all. Having a blast with Shooter right now (still haven’t finished it). After Shooter 2 you guys should do another Monsters DLC pack.

  • that was fast

  • Me gusta this… Muy

  • Please add some extra challenges that make the game much harder. Eden drove me crazy with time running out and being so close to getting the spectra, but being hard is part of the fun.

  • The first PJ Shooter was absolutely amazing, my favorite PJ game by far! :D

    Just from those 2 screenshots I believe there is some amazing ideas that will be implemented!

  • Great news! :-D

  • This is fantastic news. Shooter is not just my fave PJ game, it’s one of my favourite games period. Very much looking forward to seeing what all the new stuff is, and also glad to hear it will be bigger.

    I am a bit curious though – why a sequel and not an expansion? Is it simply because there’s so much content the expansion would be bigger than the original, or is there stuff in the sequel that couldn’t run in the original from a technical standpoint? Or some other reason I haven’t considered?

    • “…the expansion would be bigger than the original”

      This hit the nail right on the head!

  • Day Freaking One!

  • what the hell? wheres the DLC??? they said there would be DLC for this like there was for pixeljunk eden!!

  • Can’t wait. The first PJS was well worth the money I spent on it and then some. I’ve been looking forward to this game since completing the first one.

    Gives me high hopes for the Pixel Junk team if this is the sort of project you guys can come up with.

  • That’s great news.. I hope that it’s bigger than the first. At the end I felt like, ‘That’s it?? Really??’

  • Excellent news…but please save some for E3.

  • how about some online multiplayer this time? pretty pls :D

  • AvoidTalkingMice

    Really? Where is Encore for PJS1? Where is Monsters2? I’m not complaining, I would had just guessed other projects might have happened first. Shooter just came out.

  • Since the game will generally be bigger than the 1st, will the price be the same as the 1st, or more?

    i luv playing the 1st game, but i’m a budget gamer, limiting the amount of games i can buy at a time.

  • Will it support 3D?

  • love Q games! one of the best PSN developers out there.

    Blasto PSN plz!

    • I’d love to see Blasto re-released in that psp emulation format they have for ps1 games!

  • Pulling a L4D2 here eh? Why release an expansion and call it an expansion when you can call it a sequel and sell it at full price? Oh well, at least the first one wasn’t a $50 game. You’re lucky the first game was so much fun.

  • Stinkinmushroom

    Make a Pixeljunk Monsters 2 please. thank you

  • no pixeljunk monsters 2 ?, Im not happy :(

  • Freaking awesome. Dylan you rock.

  • I love Shooter. I need to get the others but can ‘t really afford it at the moment because of Red Dead. I like the idea of light. Will be really good for the deep water parts of levels.

  • DAY ONE.

    Color me excited.

  • Just finished PJ Shooter, loved the post-credits cutscene!

    Wish the DLC for Eden and Monster would have been included in that Spring Fever sale.

  • This game is so good. Can’t believe I waited until a few weeks ago to pick it up. Can’t wait for the sequel. Thank you.


  • Level Editor and Online multiplayer and map sharing pretty please.

  • Too sleepy to post anything coherent (because I was up playing Red Dead), but this is great news. One of the best PSN games.

  • Is Pixel Junk Racers Encore still coming? I bought Racers when the price dropped and I really like it, I’m just craving the Encore update with trophies and easier difficulty.

    Thanks for the updates dylan, but a couple quick questions;
    1. is this going to be a full title, or a DLC for the first game?
    2. Is Racers 2nd lap Awesome?
    3. Can we expect to see you at E3?

    Thanks again, Q-Games, never ends the PixekJunk PSN love~

    • 1. full title
      2. 2nd Lap is awesome, absolutely. It is almost ready for release.
      3. I’ll be there

  • sweet, I loved the first PJ Shooter… looking forward to this one

  • could there be move support for the game? cause ps3 needs some GOOD downloadable games with move support.

  • Day 1. (Unless you want to give it to me sooner.)

  • I still think Shooter was a stupid name

  • PrometheusZero_

    This is awesome. Like everyone is asking, is this a completely new game so if I never purchased Shooter 1, will I get the levels etc. from those if I buy Shooter 2?

  • Cant wait!!! Pixeljunk games are awesome. We need to know more about this one tho loll XD

  • us cheap gamers probably won’t want to purchase this game

  • cool. bought the first, will def buy this too

  • That light ‘shroom looks tasty!


  • Have been looking forward to this since I finished PJS

  • AWESOME. I Can’t wait. Hope it comes bundled with Pixel Junk Racers 2nd Lap.

  • Awesome game.

    I will buy it day 1.

    Please, include a platinum trophy.

  • I purchased Monsters and Shooter. They are both amazing games and are going into my drawer of memorable classics.

    I got a big surprise out of a buddy who doesn’t own a PS3 (or 360 or Wii for that matter). He thought all that there was on the systems were super-graphically intense games. When we played Shooter he got really excited that these types of games are also available on the system.

    Looking forward to Shooter 2!

  • kool now sens its coming :) hop about some pshome rewards for it n a better home space of it :) n apartment as well :)

  • That will be a day one purchase for me. Curious though, If the sale price really jumped sales would there be consideration of the game price point being a little lower than what the original came out as?

    (Not that the original price point was in any way bad. Frankly even though i never finished it i found the game to be well worth teh price)

  • Great to hear, had a lot of fun with the first one.
