The Next PixelJunk Game Is…'PixelJunk Shooter'

We've already seen the next game from designer Dylan Cuthbert and the rest of the PixelJunk folks, but it didn't have a name. Today, that mystery has been solved -- their next game is officially PixelJunk Shooter.

Cuthbert has revealed some of the runner-up name choices at the PlayStation Blog, including PixelJunk Elements and PixelJunk Depths.

"The most popular name suggested by a long shot was PixelJunk Elements, but we decided that it didn’t capture the shooting side of the game well enough and at the worst people might think it was a game about the weather," explained Cuthbert. "'Depths' almost became the chosen name but our producer at Sony Santa Monica, Deborah Mars, sounded like she had a lisp when she said it, so we dropped that one early on. We needed to choose a name everyone can enunciate. ;-)"

I'd dropped PixelJunk Voyage into the submission pool. While Shooter is certainly descriptive, it's a little...boring when compared to Eden or Monsters. But hey, who cares about the name, right? What's important: PixelJunk Shooter looks like it'll be awesome.
