PixelJunk Inc trailer reveals soupy gameplay

The trials and tribulations of building a canned soup empire in space are revealed in the first gameplay trailer for PixelJunk Inc from Q-Games, the mysterious game formerly known only by its codename PixelJunk 1-6. Unusually for Q, PixelJunk Inc will debut on PC, hitting Mac and Linux too.

The trials and tribulations of building a canned soup empire in space are revealed in the first gameplay trailer for PixelJunk Inc from Q-Games. Psst, that's the final name for the mysterious game formerly known only by its codename PixelJunk 1-6. Unusually for Q, PixelJunk Inc will debut on PC, hitting Mac and Linux too.

PixelJunk Inc will blast you--and your chums, as it has co-op--into space to build a canned soup facility on a distant world. You'll build processing plants and farms, and explore above and below the surface in search of ever more exotic ingredients for fancier soups. Only, you may also stumble across hostile life quite resistant to being soupified, and will need to defend yourself. Throw in natural hazards like gas pockets, and you've got a recipe for fun.

The game's due to launch via Steam this year. Check the development blog for more.

        They've abandoned the PS3. I've personally mailed Dylan Cuthbert a tupperware box of feces, doing klerck proud.

          If they're abandoning PS3 for PC, I'm ok with that.

            I'm not, I'd rather they focus on a gaming platform.

                Q-Games have been PS3 focused for years, this is a sad change for them.

                  Sad for you maybe. I'm sure it must make sense for them.

                  Yes, I demand they release a game for a platform that is about to become last gen. How dare they try and expose it to a platform like the PC that will ensure people can continue to purchase and play titles despite new hardware changes.

                  I demand it come out on PSN for PS3 and then never be accessed again through PS4. Future sales be damned. All in the name of the mighty Abrasion and his boxes of shit.

                    Who said I want it ONLY on PS3? I'd like it also on PS3 as they were a primary PS3 developer and made some great games.

      They really need to get PixelJunkMonsters on the PC. Along with PJM2.

        PJM2 for PS3 with online coop. I've literally hassled Dylan for this 15 times on twitter in the past 2.5 years.

        I'd be satisfied with updating PJM on PS3 with the content from the PSP version.

          Yep.
          Hassle Dylan Cuthbert on twitter. Sigh :(

        monsters really depends on the slowness of the tiki-men as part of the gameplay. would PC tower defense gamers accept not being able to just click on a tree to build a tower?

          That would be a tricky one. It is unique and I see your point. I would deal with it, since it was a really well done game.
