Next PixelJunk named Shooter

Will have co-op multiplayer.

Q-Games boss Dylan Cuthbert has revealed on the US PlayStation Blog that his studio's next PSN game will be called PixelJunk Shooter and will have a co-op mode.

The game formerly known as PixelJunk 1-4 was named through a competition on the Q-Games website. Runner-up monikers were PixelJuink S.O.S!, PixelJunk Blaster, PixelJunk Caves, PixelJunk Atlantis and PixelJunk Depths, which apparently came close to winning. The most popular suggestion was PixelJunk Elements, but Q worried that it might sound like "a game about the weather".

Pixel-Junk Shooter is a game in which you explore undergound caverns, shooting stuff and manipulating flows of water and lava to save stranded explorers and navigate the caves. We played it at last month's Sony preview event and loved it.

Cuthbert promises that a newer demo, including the unexplained co-op play, will be on show at E3 next week. In the meantime, check out the video and screens at the newly renamed PixelJunk Shooter gamepage. There's no release date as yet.
