We’re all familiar with what zombies want to eat, but has anyone tried feeding them something else? Burgers, perhaps? The PixelJunk people at Q-Games give it a try in their first virtual reality game, Dead Hungry, and it works like a charm. Who knew?
The Tomorrow Children is an odd exploration and social game that’s out now on the Playstation 4. Taking the role of a citizen laboring in the dangerous Void, it’s cute but brutal. Luckily, I’m here to deal with all the toil and monsters.
I’m not quite a VR convert. I get sick easily. Yet, if one game has made an extremely compelling case that VR can work brilliantly, it’s Dead Hungry.
If you plan on visiting Japan, do yourself a favor and go to Kyoto. And if you can fly around like a drone, even better.
Multimedia artist Baiyon, known for his art and sound work on PixelJunk 4am and PixelJunk Eden, is joining Q-Games as a full-time Creative Producer, the company announced today. Good news for those who are fans of both Q-Games and Baiyon.
The alpha for The Tomorrow Children, an interesting PS4 action game from Q-Games and Japan Studio that looks inspired by Communist design, begins next month.
Q-Games' The Tomorrow Children is a lucid dream of community, crafting, monsters and 'Marxist parody'. A world where inhabitants work for the good of a communal town. And if that means bribing others to make your vote more equal than others? So be it.
Just unveiled at Gamescom, the next game from the makers of the Pixeljunk series is focused on co-operation. Better work on your manners.
The latest adventure in Q-Games' PixelJunk saga is so grand in scope and stature that a simple three-letter abbreviation couldn't contain it, so PixelJunk Inc. becomes PixelJunk Nom Nom Galaxy, coming to Steam Early Access on March 13.
In my opinion, Q-Games' PixelJunk Shooter and Shooter 2 are the best twin-stick shooters on the PlayStation 3. This summer, Double Eleven is combining both into PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate for the PS4 and Vita. Here are nine reasons it'll be even best-ier than before.
Q-Games, they of Pixeljunk fame, aren't exactly starving artists. They release games on most major platforms, and do pretty well both critically and financially. Especially after the latest Steam sale.
In space, soup is a nasty business. You’ll need to build bases that defend automatically themselves from attackers and jump your way to remote locations for out-of-the-ordinary ingredients. But, even in the far future of Pixeljunk Inc., people need their stews.
For six years I've been streaming music to my PlayStation 3 using the same old trio of launch visualizers, which is a sadness. This week Q-Games makes me happy again, with a new PS3 app simply called Visualizer.
The entire room was packed. This has to be a fire hazard, someone said. It probably was, but no one cared. They were too busy looking at cool games they had never seen before and meeting game creators they had heard of and never heard of before.
Kyoto based Q-Games is working on its new title. The game, currently codenamed PixelJunk 1-6, is being made with the PC specifically in mind. Above is a first look.
The 1-6 codename references the game's place in the PixelJunk series: it will be the sixth PixelJunk game. While developing the game, Q Games is also…
If you say "Q-Games", the first things that come to mind are probably Nintendo and Sony. (Oh, and there's that other Japan-based developer with a similar name.) But you think consoles. You don't think computers. Consoles. That could change.
Max Payne 3 is coming out on May 15. Diablo III is coming out on May 15. A Game of Thrones game is coming out on May 15.
It's hard to look cool when you're playing most music video games. You may think you look cool with your dinky plastic guitar or humorously scale-sized drum set, but in reality you look like… well, a person playing a plastic instrument.
I'll try any video game, because any video game might have the year's best idea in it.
