Our relationship with Q-Games has previously brought PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate, and more recently Shooter Ultimate to PlayStation Store, building on some great titles from the past. Nom Nom Galaxy, however, is a new title that we are developing together with Q-Games in Japan as a co-development.
We’ve always been impressed with Q’s ability to generate very unique worlds and play mechanics, and we believe NNG is the pinnacle of their efforts! It’s a genre melter that’s a co-op multiplayer game about building, expanding and maintaining an interstellar soup factory with your friends. It blends elements of tower defense, sandbox exploration, co-op platforming, resource management and construction, all set in a unique living eco-system.
It’s a big project, both in terms of scope and ambition and we’re delighted to be involved in designing and developing the game with Q.
There’s a heavy emphasis on playing online as we’re putting a lot of energy into creating a seamless drop in co-op experience that lets PS4 and Vita players all play within the same game; whether playing online or on the couch.
Co-op play, as you’ve probably already noticed, has been core to all the PixelJunk games and it’s going to be at the centre of Nom Nom Galaxy. In addition to playing together, we’re going to introduce asynchronous and community challenges as well as a host of other new things that we’ll talk about in the future.
So there you go folks, two indie developers joining forces to bring what we hope will be a very unique experience to PlayStation! For more information be sure to visit NomNomGalaxy.com and follow us @PixelJunkNews and @DoubleElevenLtd.
One final note, we’re pleased to say a very early version of NNG will be playable this week at Gamescom 2014! See you there!
