PixelJunk Shooter Is On Its Way To Linux

Posted by , | Views: 5,647
The PixelJunk developers emailed this one in and I had to keep quiet about it until the official announcement, but no more! PixelJunk Shooter is on its way to Linux.

This comes after they recently released PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate to us so it seems we are gaining yet another Linux friendly developer.

QuoteHi Liam,

Apologies for the delay in getting in touch! I hope all is well with you. I held off getting back in touch until now in favour of a bigger announcement......

We promised you that we would bring more PixelJunk, so we are pleased to lift the curtain and reveal our next PixelJunk game: Shooter!!

I'm not sure if you are familiar with the world of Shooter, so I will give you a quick summary: you must pilot your spacecraft through a range of cavernous environments in a bid to save the scientists trapped underground. Add dangerous enemies and hazardous substances to the mix and your mission becomes clear! PixelJunk™ Shooter is made up of 15 stages and contains the fun retro visuals and soundtrack that PixelJunk fans have become accustomed to.

It will be available through Steam and our other distribution partners for 11th November! The game will retail at £5.99/€6.99/$8.99. We have also coordinated the PC, Mac and Linux versions to launch on the same day (a simple thing, but it’s a first for us).

There are no trailers for it on PC yet of course, but there is this official one from the Playstation version:

It really is, it looks simple but the game play it amazingly fun and addictive, specially the levels with loads of lava and you run out of water if your not careful, its a must buy this one  and of course nr 2 also if they bring that out, adds a whole lot more to it
