'PixelJunk Eden' (PSN) Coming To Steam Soon

by Rainier on Jan. 28, 2012 @ 12:07 a.m. PST

PixelJunk Eden is a platform game where the player feels like a small insect seeing a garden for the first time. Within this evolving and vibrant 2D plant environment, the player leaps and swings between lush plants, smashing into approaching enemies and navigating around the undergrowth to gather treasures.

Welcome to the garden of PixelJunk Eden, a refreshingly different platform game wrapped in a vibrant world. In PixelJunk Eden, the latest downloadable entry to the PixelJunk series from developer Q-Games, living and luminous plant-life grows in real-time to form a lively stage. In this constantly evolving environment, players control a small creature called a “Grimp” (from “grip” and “jump”) to explore a dynamic setting alive with color and sound. By smashing into enemies, the player releases batches of pollen that can help the lush alien plants change and grow. As they develop, players can leap, swing and soar between them to get further through the undergrowth and gather all the bundles of energy and light from the level before the time available runs out.

"Steam has always been a great platform for indie games and I have admired the way they have supported non-traditional game development with titles such as Terraria, Bastion, World of Goo, etc. We like PSN a lot but Baiyon and I also simply want to allow more people to experience Eden as it is a truly unique game, even now almost 4 years on it is still fresh and new. We had a blast revisiting it to prepare it for Steam."

PixelJunk Eden will be avaialble through Steam for $9.99, with an additional 20% off for early buyers, and will include the Encore DLC pack, while Eden's  17-song soundtrack, including some unreleased tracks, will be available as a separate download for $5.99.

  • Distinctive Visuals and Music – Features 10 unique stages with stylishly designed graphics and original music from award-winning Japanese artist Baiyon.
  • Dynamic Animations and Effects – Organic growth animations for each plant, plus environmental and particle effects bring the setting to life and keep it constantly evolving.
