Kyoto-based developer Q-Games is pleased to introduce the next title in the PixelJunk™ series, PixelJunk™ Shooter. In PixelJunk Shooter, players take control of a subterranean vehicle to explore diverse underground caverns teeming with mysterious, deadly creatures.

At the heart of PixelJunk Shooter is a complex and dynamic fluid simulation system, which fills the game world with flowing liquids and hazardous gases, and provides the game its distinctive style. Blast holes in walls, melt solid ice, ignite gas filled caves, or use your ship itself to drill past scorching hot magma– the fluids react in real-time to the player’s actions and to other liquids, creating unique and exciting situations with every play.

The goal of the game is to keep cool (the player’s ship is susceptible to overheating) whilst finding and rescuing the many helpless survivors stranded underground. Players will need to master the deformable terrain, the flowing liquids and the fierce life forms. as they proceed deeper into ever more challenging environments.
