Q-Games boss Dylan Cuthbert has confirmed that a sequel to PSN gem PixelJunk Shooter is in "full production", and that a demo of the first game will be released this month.

"It will have some features that are new to the PixelJunk series in general and will be bigger than the first game!" Cuthbert hinted on the US PlayStation blog.

"We're busy implementing all the ideas that were left on the drawing board for the first game to make Shooter 2 as jam-packed full of crazy fun as possible… I'm pretty sure we won't make a Shooter 3 because everything and the kitchen sink (probably quite literally) is going into Shooter 2."

Cuthbert also promised to release a free demo of one of his favourite levels from the first game on May 25th.

PixelJunk Shooter is a blend of twin-stick shooting, puzzle-solving and exploration set in a pop-art, sci-fi world of caves and featuring spectacular fluid dynamics. It is, as Cuthbert proudly states, "awesome".
