PixelJunk Eden coming to Steam next week
Q-Games is to release PixelJunk Eden on PC through Steam, the developer has announced. The game originally launched in 2008 exclsively through PlayStation Network.
You’ll be able to download the Steam edition from 2 February. It will cost $9.99 and it’ll come bundled with the Encore DLC.
Of course, this being Q-Games, we only expect the best – and that sounds like what we’re going to get. Eden has had its controls and enemies tweaked for the PC, with the play-controlled ‘Grimp’ now able to warp back to his most recent resting place. Presumably, the idea is to lessen the frustration as missing an important jump.
Your game can also be saved during levels, a feature not available with the PSN edition.
Dylan Cuthbert, head of Q-Games, said that Eden was the obviously choice for a PC release from the developer’s current catalogue because “the beautiful graphics and colours are striking on a PC monitor especially at higher resolutions than the standard HDTV 1080p and the game is perfect for the more point/click style that comes with mouse control.”
