Q-Games' PixelJunk Eden is on its way to Steam next week. The game will cost $9.99, and will include the "Encore" expansion pack for free.

New to the PC release is the ability to warp back to your last resting position, helpful for when you take a one-minute long fall off the top of the level. Plus, you can save your progress within each garden, so you can pick up where you left off rather than restarting from the beginning.

Q-Games founder Dylan Cuthbert hinted at future Steam releases in the PixelJunk series, citing Eden as merely the first one. He describes why he chose to make Eden the Steam series debut. "When I was thinking through the catalog of PixelJunk games, Eden was the one that stood out to me as perfect for the Steam audience," Cuthbert said. "The beautiful graphics and colors are striking on a PC monitor especially at higher resolutions than the standard 'HDTV' 1080p and the game is perfect for the more point/click style that comes with mouse control."

The game and its soundtrack will be available on February 2. Q-Games teased that early purchases will be available for 20% off.

      Eden is great, but give me Monsters (preferably the Deluxe version from the PSP), and then make a goddamn sequel.

          They were supposedly working on one called "Dungeons" like, several years back, but I haven't heard anything about it since.

          New IP from them at this point would be cool, but I haven't been nearly as impressed by their newer stuff as I was by Eden and Monsters.
