Q-Games' John Davis on PixelJunk, Nom Nom Galaxy and T-Shirts

Hi, I'm John Davis, Q-Games Community Manager and Assistant Producer on the latest PixelJunk title, Nom Nom Galaxy! We're honored to be part of the N4G Indie Month and to be in the company of such great developers. I'm also excited to talk about contest we're running now for a chance to win one of the exclusive Nom Nom Galaxy t-shirts we'll be giving away at PAX Prime!

If you're unfamiliar with Q-Games or the PixelJunk series, here's a brief primer. Our company president, Dylan Cuthbert, got his game dev chops on projects like the original Star Fox and development of the PlayStation 2. In 2001, he founded Q-Games in Kyoto, Japan. We've had our hands in small bits of the PlayStation 3 development, including my favorite PS3 visualizers, Earth. We've also done some great DSiWare games, like Reflect Missile/Trajectile and X-Scape. And we were lucky enough to return to the Star Fox universe on the Nintendo DS (Star Fox Command) and 3DS (Star Fox 3D). But gamers are probably most familiar with our PixelJunk series! Since 2007 we've developed and published seven PixelJunk games and various expansions on PSN.

Nom Nom Galaxy is the latest in the series and our first game to debut on Steam. It's unlike anything we've done in the past; a 2D genre mash-up of base building, tower defense, and galactic economic domination through soup that we like to call SoupCraft! This is also our first Early Access title, which has been both amazing and incredibly stressful.

We'll be showing off the latest version of Nom Nom Galaxy at PAX and a few other places over the next few months. I can't get into the specifics of where or what you'll see it just yet, but we're really excited for the upcoming announcements. So excited, in fact, that we're holding a Nom Nom Galaxy t-shirt contest right now on our PixelJunk Facebook page and Twitter! All you have to do to enter is vote on your favorite design to be automatically entered into the drawing. If you've got a Twitter account, follow us @PixelJunkNews and look for the RT contest for more chances to win. And if all else fails, come play Nom Nom Galaxy at PAX for another chance to snag this swag!

As the last game ofr Indie month, I wouldn't expect anything less than Nom Nom Galaxy. The game sounds very fun.
