PixelJunk Lifelike details revealed

Q-Games has released details on another new exclusive to the PlayStation Network, PixelJunk Lifelike. They’ve reunited with Baiyon, the artist and musician who had worked previously with them on PixelJunk Eden. The new and innovative Lifelike puts “the power of creation directly at your fingertips” with the use of the PlayStation Move controller, allowing players to use its “unique Virtual Audio Canvas to mix tracks and experiment with audio effects” in order to make “breathtaking compositions they can share and broadcast to anyone and everyone!”

I’m not sure what the hell is going on here, but they said that you can paint with sound, and that you “can move to the mellow sounds of Baiyon and create visuals organically according to each player’s movements, creating a unique experience unlike any other music visualizer.” No word yet on whether this will come with hallucinogenic drugs or if this is a game that children should not be playing due to the fact that it will trigger an acid trip. Either way, I’m sure to buy it – those geniuses could make PixelJunk Backgammon and I’d still buy it.
