The next game in the PixelJunk
series is looking to potentially be the best yet, though it is lacking something. A name
. Since it was announced, the game has been referred to simply as PixelJunk 1-4
-- the fourth game in the first series. The assumption was that the name was such a giveaway to the game's style and / or gameplay that it was being kept under wraps. Now it turns out that Q-Games just hasn't decided on one yet. In fact, they're leaving it up to you.
Check out the official naming contest website
for some inspiration in the form of not only full screenshots of the game, but also a video of it in action (also seen above). You have until May 11 to submit your name idea on the website and the winner will not only have the satisfaction of knowing that they named the game, but they will also be featured in the game's credits and, along with five runners up, receive a PixelJunk _____
Judging by the previous PixelJunk
titles, the name will need to be short and snappy, yet encapsulate the style of the game. Not an easy job. Be sure to check back here at noon EST for even more
inspiration in the form of our hands-on impressions of the game. Good luck to all who enter!
