About the Game

The critically acclaimed PSN hit PixelJunk™ Eden has swung its way to Steam!
With a spectrum of new features and controls re-imagined specifically for the PC, PixelJunk™ Eden on Steam will feel brand new for even the most seasoned veterans of the PS3 version. Swing, climb, and jump your way through massive “gardens” of vibrant other-worldly plant-life in this truly organic platformer and grow each garden as you explore and guide your tiny yet agile "Grimp" toward the elusive "Spectra" which are hidden throughout each stage. Ride giant plants as they grow beneath you, then swing from them destroying Pollen Prowlers in an ever-increasing cacophony of pollen. Be fired from cannons, float in zero-G, warp to mirror worlds or simply be buffeted about by the wind while clinging desperately to a dangling leaf; each garden has a unique set of challenges, puzzles and enemies that will expand your mind!
Featuring a minimal original techno soundtrack and unique graphic style both of which were created in harmony with each-other by Indie multimedia artist “Baiyon”, Eden will give you an experience like no other game on this planet, or the next.

Key features:

  • A spellbinding harmony of sight and sound realized by independent musician and graphic artist Baiyon.
  • All 15 gardens from both Eden and the "Encore" expansion pack available for play.
  • Completely re-imagined controls for the mouse.
  • An all new "Quick Warp" feature that allows players to quickly return to their last jump position if they find themselves falling too far..
  • A new and improved "continue" feature: Players can now start from the last Spectra they took on any given stage.
  • Lots of new fun achievements added for your Steam achievement list!

Cool game. It's like iOS game style with simply control and musics.

A great one of time-killing games. If you looking for relief I'll recommend this.

A great game. It is hard to explain exactly why, but it is unique and beautiful. Don't let other reviewers fool you into thinking this game is just powder-puff because they label it casual or relaxing. There is a very nice element of challenge to this game and it can downright frustrate the hell out of you when you can't find that last Spectra. Sure, it has no real enemies--not in the typical sense of monsters trying to eat you or mangle you in some way, but it has its own obstacles/opponents you must face. It will relax you at times with a very electro-zen soundtrack that puts you in a trance, but it will also captivate you and give you hours of non-linear adventure gaming enjoyment, if you just open your mind to a little different style of play.

Let me begin by warning the completionists out there like me: PixelJunk Eden will frustrate you and waste hours of your time if you let it. Don't be tempted to go for the "Open All Seeds" achievements on any but the first few gardens (levels). The game gives you no tools to find any seeds that you've missed and most of the gardens later in the game are huge with at least a couple seeds in really obscure locations. To top it off there is a finite amount of life rejuvenating crystals in each map so there is a very real cap to how long you can spend searching before you can't sustain yourself anymore, die and have to start all over. I likely would have given this game a higher rating had I stopped playing at 10 hours instead of 20.

And what a pleasant first 10 hours it was. The experience included eye-catching visuals, a unique and fitting soundtrack, simple yet challenging enough gameplay and some good level design with plenty of variety. It had a relaxing feel to it. In the early to mid levels health crystals were plentiful enough that I hardly paid attention to the life bar. I'll admit that the soundtrack didn't appeal to my tastes but there seems to be a lot of praise out there for it. There were a couple tracks I liked and the rest at least weren't grating.

In my mind the life system that is constantly ticking down and needing to be refilled was a very poor design choice for this type of game. In a game all about exploration, collecting things and taking in the sights and sounds, why impose an unnecessary time constraint? It would have been better to let players set their own pace and have a more standard health bar so that the enemies still have teeth.

Despite my gripes I’d still recommend this game if you treat it casually. Bring too much hardcore gamer mindset to it and it’s likely to go sour on you.
