PixelJunk 1-4 Trailer

By: Brandon McCartin (BMcC)

On: May 12th, 2009

Moving on, then! Here is a trailer of the latest in the PS3 PixelJunk series from <a href=“” “Q-Games’ website”>Q-Games, tentatively titled 1-4. It looks floaty and physicsy and fun! Think Solar Jetman (one of my favourites), or Oids or something, but with impressive liquid physics, destroyable terrain, and slick, modern visuals. I dunno if the music in the trailer is from the game, but it seems cool too!

There was a contest going on to pick the name of 1-4, but it looks like the entry period is now over. (Sorry, folks!) Anyway, you can still find more about the game <a href=“” title"PixelJunk 1-4">here.

1up: RSVP

For the weekend, I leave you with the inaugural episode of RSVP, 1up’s new series of intimate game designer round-tables. Mark MacDonald chats with Valve’s Eric Wolpaw, Q-Games’ Dylan Cuthbert, and Everyday Shooter creator Jonathan Mak in the infamous “Sake Room” at Ozumo restaurant in San Francisco (I went there once and ate a cow with a name). It’s long, and I haven’t watched the whole thing. But I’m hoping for a makeout session at the end.

The 1UP Show: Q-Games and thatgamecompany

On: March 5th, 2008

I always enjoy listening to Jenova Chen and Kellee Santiago (thatgamecompany) talk about games, and I’m not as familiar with Dylan Cuthbert (Q-Games), but he has good things to say. Hearing from developers who are passionate about what they do just makes my heart swell! It makes you feel very fortunate to be able to take part in this shift in gaming.

GDC: Oodles of Videos

Interview with Kyle Gabler (World of Goo)

Not sure when video of the award show in its entirety is going to be available, since G4 is covering it this year. It’ll be pretty awesome to see Phil Fish say “fucking” (or rather, “bleep!”) on national t.v. And they’ll undoubtedly blur out Petri’s amazing sign…

In the meantime, hit the jump for some indie-related vids:

Monster Madness

Monster Madness

Dylan Cuthbert, founder of Japanese-based Q-Games (which developed the PS3 downloadable game Pixel Junk Racers), talks about their latest game, Monster Madness, in this blog entry. The game is an RTS/Tower Defense hybrid made with Japanese gamers in mind.

The entry has some interesting tidbits, and I found this part to be terribly amusing:

The online rankings are going to be pretty competitive for this title and there are separate tables for cooperative and single play. The cooperative mode actually gets people to talk to each other as they play, and seeing as girls love this game (no, honestly, they do!), Monsters could become an important tool in every lad’s arsenal!

It’s true – video games can be a great way to break the ice with the opposite sex, men and women alike. The way I do it is using the NES Power Pad… World Class Track Meet, baby. They never expect me to get down on my knees and start pounding the buttons with my fists. Works every time!

Discounted Indies for the PS3

By: ithamore

On: November 22nd, 2007


From GameSpot:

Sony also temporarily discounted several older downloadable PS3 games on the PlayStation Store. Calling All Cars, fl0w, PixelJunk Racers, and Everyday Shooter have all been reduced to $4.99 through November 29.

Although this quote seems to be from an ill-informed opinion from GameSpot (since when, less than 2 months ago, did Everyday Shooter become old), I’m hoping that all those out there with an indie affection and a PS3 will finally purchase these indie games they might have been holding off on for one reason or an other.
