PixelJunk Shooter 2 commercial gets inside survivor’s head

Back in the days of headache-inducing Atari graphics, we didn’t have any of this cinematic story telling malarkey: we had to use our imaginations.

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.

The first of an apparent three entries in The Survivor Files, the subtitled, downbeat ad is embedded below.

Presumably we can expects part two and three on the PixelJunk Youtube channel.

As the video confirms, PixelJunk Shooter hits the PSN on March 1, with a Japanese release on March 3.
