YellowDart is full Steam ahead – PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate

By | PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate | No Comments

Hi folks,

We are proud to announce, in our continued collaboration with Kyoto based Q-Games, that PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate will be launching on Steam and Windows PC TODAY!

For that of you that may not know, what is Shooter Ultimate? PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is a twin stick shooter with equal elements of action, exploration, and puzzle solving. The Ultimate’ comes from the fact that PixelJunk Shooter 1 and 2 were combined to make a seamless story mode featuring all of the levels from both games.

That however, is not all, we’ve made a number of enhancements, making the PC edition the best ever version of the game. Players now have the choice to switch between two art styles: the new semi-3D, environmentally lit graphics with other visual enhancements in the ‘Ultimate’ edition or the ‘Classic’ style of the original games. It’s also good news for those who own PixelJunk Shooter already on Steam; Ultimate can use its save game to continue on into the second chapter.

PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate will be available on Steam and other selected online retailers from TODAY.

Be sure to follow @DoubleElevenLtd and @PixelJunkNews for more reconnaissance. D11 OUT.

Hi Guys, Double Eleven have developed and are launching Frozen Synapse Prime – the critically acclaimed remake of Frozen Synapse – on iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch® on August 20th, from the App Store! Become the ultimate tactician.

For those new to the game, Prime features a rich single player campaign with 40+ challenging missions set within a dystopian future, where players take on the role of a tactician that controls an elite strike team of futuristic soldiers, from shotgunners and snipers to grenadiers and machine gunners.

In Prime, you go head to head with the AI; both teams plot paths and issue orders to their squad members, creating a plan on a turn-by-turn basis. Both plans are then played out on procedural, 3D, and destructible battlefields and the resulting combat ensues!

Prime also contains features to help players improve their planning and performance including; 3D cameras that provide a better perspective for planning and dynamic cinematic replays so players can re-watch their matches, analyse their planning post-battle and enhance their strategy for future matches.

#GoatDay – Goat Simulator is out on PS3 & PS4

By | Goat Simulator | No Comments

Hey folks,

A few weeks ago we announced that Goat Simulator is coming to PS3 and PS4 and now that day is here, #GoatDay.

Not sure what Goat Simulator is about? You could read our last blog post, or you could just watch our trailer and and let the classical music wash over you as the chaos unfolds.


You can get Goat Simulator from the PlayStation Store right now!

There are many qualities that can make a good game: awesome visuals, responsive controls, tight gameplay, rich background stories and characters. There’s so much choice today, almost too much. Goat Simulator gives you the alternative you’ve been seeking, a bug-filled experience where you get to be a goat who wrecks stuff. Add three friends for local co-op on PS4 or just your best friend on PS3. Simples. No complications, just a simple, goat-tastic gaming experience that allows you to cause more chaos than any goat has ever been able to… until now.

Oh, and one more thing. This is the first version of Goat Simulator to include GoatVR and we’re really excited to share this with you. The simulated GoatVR experience is so close to actually having a headset on that we expect a lot of you will instinctively reach to remove the headset after a game session, even though you never put one on in the first place! But fear not, we have many cardboard… I mean er… VR Headsets to go round.

Thanks for reading and hope you’ll give it a try!

Goat Simulator: Mmore Goatz Edition will be trampling Xbox this year!

By | Goat Simulator | No Comments


Hi guys,

As you know we released – in collaboration with Coffee Stain Studios – the original Goat Simulator on Xbox. Shortly after launch, the studio was bombarded with letters and emails begging for more Goat-filled fun. Luckily we have a surprise for the fans of the original… Goat Simulator: Mmore Goatz Edition.

See what they did there? Genius. Players no longer have to fantasize about being simulated goats in the middle of a zombie apocalypse and or a simulated MMO; dreams are coming true for gamers the world over with this one.

Experience faction warfare between goats and sheep in MMO; warfare so good you’ll think that simulation is an understatement. As either a Warrior, Rouge, Magician, Hunter or Microwave, players embark on highly cerebral quests including “hand me that apple” or engage in an epic quest to lick 10,000 trees. All on your way to level all the way up to 101 – that’s right, not level 100, 101.

For players who wish they were in one of those popular dystopian zombie based TV shows, in real life then look no further! Players can push the physics system beyond its limits and throw themselves – as a goat – into the middle of a zombie apocalypse! Craft anything (as long as it’s one of six weapons) to survive and fight against the undead.

Goat Simulator: Mmore Goatz Edition will be trampling Xbox One and Xbox 360 this year.
