If you’re not familiar with PixelJunk games, then you are sorely missing out. As downloadables on the PlayStation Store, Monsters and Racers were great games, but Q-Games really showed what they were capable of with Eden, a genuine sensory experience rather than a mere game for the sake of gaming.
You may notice that PixelJunk 1-4 doesn’t quite flow off the tongue as well as something like PixelJunk Eden, and that’s what Q-Games wants you to help with. Q-Games is holding a naming contest where contestants submit their best ideas for a name. The winner gets a big box of pride, his or her name in the credits, and a PixelJunk shirt featuring the winning name, a prize shared by five runner-ups as well.
At the official contest page, you can view some screenshots and a trailer for some inspiration and information on how you’ll be shooting at the environment for fun “fluid simulation.” However, instead of letting that tell you the whole story, read the hands-on impressions by Kotaku, Shacknews, and Joystiq (or anywhere else you’d prefer) for more fleshed-out details on the gameplay.
Also, continuing the trend from PixelJunk Eden, the music is still kickass. Never have I wanted to be around hot flowing magma more than right now.
