Pixeljunk developer Q-Games has expressed its hope for a resurgence in core games going into the next generation. Studio president Dylan Cuthbert isn’t just talking about Call of Duty though, but proper, innovative ‘gamer’s games’ that can sell for more than a low digital asking price.

Since we’ve forgotten how in the intervening three decades, PixelJunk has provided this delightful commercial for PixelJunk Shooter 2, which asks us to consider the inner lives of those itsy-bitsy stranded spacemen.

PixelJunk Shooter 2 is the first proper sequel in Q-Games’ quirky series so far, and if new information is to be believed, it could very soon land in our eager little paws, complete with new bosses, loads of additional content, and a hard-fought multiplayer mode.

Nathan: “Pat! I’m going to Japan!”
Pat: “I’ll ask Dylan Cuthbert if you can pop along to Q’s offices in Kyoto and do an interview.”
[10 minutes later]
Pat: “It’s all good. He said yes.”
Nathan: “I’m so, like, doing this thing. Hopefully I’ll get to speak to PixelJunk Shooter director Shouichi Tominaga, PixelJunk Monsters and Racers director Rhod Broadbent and recruitment and PR chap Duncan Flett.”
Pat: “That would be very cool. And Dylan, too?”
Nathan: “I have a feeling he won’t be there on the day.”
Pat: “Me too. We didn’t want to speak to him anyway, right?”
Nathan: “Right. I think.”

Cuthbert told Wired back in March that his company was currently at work on PixelJunk 4 and other titles in the series.
Hopefully this means we won’t have to wait much longer to take a gander at it.
