New PixelJunk 1-4 video walkthrough
The Game With No Name (which you can still have a say in by the way – the competition ends on May 11th) has featured yet again over on the official PlayStation blog with PS3 Attitude FridayFollower (thanks again) Jeff Rubenstein speaking with 1-4 Producer Matt Morton about the upcoming spelunking themed PSN exclusive.
Matt takes us through life in the cavern, describing how alien lifeforms are determined to stymy your attempts to rescue as many people as possible while you contend with the elements.
What’s interesting to hear is how you can use these forces against each other to progress to the next cavern. By using water on the lava to cool the rock and then blast it to form new pathways for example, you can unlock new and inventive ways of overcoming obstacles. In fact, from the dynamic and fluid gameplay presented, there is no one way to master a specific problem, something we find exciting and indicative of great game design.
Matt also mentions how you’ll need to keep an eye on the lava as, if the temperature gets too high, your craft is just not going to fly.
