PixelJunk Raiders is a brand new adventure from the creators of the esteemed PixelJunk series, known for classic titles such as PixelJunk Monsters, PixelJunk Shooter, and PixelJunk Eden. Q-Games is excited to partner with Google to bring this exciting new experience to Stadia. PixelJunk Raiders is exclusively developed to take full advantage of Stadia’s revolutionary features such as State Share and device-agnostic streaming capabilities.
With Stadia’s State Share feature, you’re never alone in your fight to save Planet Tantal. Prepare and deploy Imprints to defend against and hinder your enemies, but they aren’t just there for you to use! Share your Game State with your friends and let them experience the same challenge from the beginning, but with the extra help of the Imprints you placed. They can, in turn, place more Imprints and share those with other players too, in an ever-continuing chain of cooperation. This is truly a one of a kind asynchronous multiplayer experience that has to be seen to believe!
In PixelJunk Raiders, players take on the role of an ambitious young mercenary sent down to the surface of Planet Tantal to rescue the indigenous Tantallian race from a mysterious Anomaly and the invading alien forces emerging from it. The arrival of the Anomaly has interfered with conventional travel, our brave but inexperienced mercenary must make use of the SYRIX 1200 avatar system to rescue the inhabitants and investigate the reasons for the Anomaly’s sudden appearance. With limited aid and armaments, the mercenary must scavenge what weapons and resources they can in order to survive.
Procedurally generated landscapes filled with unique settlements, towns, underground cantinas, canyons, and monolithic temples mean that each new play session is unique. Explore a new part of Tantal every time you play!
