Pixeljunk Eden finally coming to the PC

I really do want to emphasize the word finally because for the longest time this was one of the major reasons I wanted to get a PS3.  Since I never did get one (but spoiler alert, I will be very soon), I never got to play this game.

Pixeljunk Eden currently is a PS3 exclusive title made by Japanese developer Q-Games, itsan artistic blend of abstract visuals, some platforming and rope-swinging game elements fused into a puzzle environment.  That’s all I can really say from the numerous previews I’ve seen of the game, now I’d like to actually play the thing.  Hit the jump for a video preview of the game (although it is from the PS3 version).

The PC version will be released to Steam for $9.99 and will include bonus levels and the full soundtrack and will hit next week for an initial 20% off price-tag.  I hesitate to call Q-Games an “indie developer”, because they’re pretty well funded from the likes of Sony, but then again so is thatgamecompany.  Single-A is probably a more appropriate term.  In any case, I’ll be grabbing this next week for sure!  Score one for the PC master race!

About Ryan Saul

Hailing from Portland, OR I work by day and blog by night. I like to consider myself a video game connoisseur, playing as many new things as I can get my hands on. Its hard to hold me down to one game for very long before I move on to the next big thing. Luckily, that works pretty well in terms of video game blogging.
