If you own a PS3 and haven't downloaded PixelJunk Monsters, you're currently failing in life. It's awesome, and the 'Encore' expansion pack will be extending the fun in May.
Q-Games' expansion will give players a whole new island, Toki Island, containing 15 more inevitably infuriating levels to complete (doesn't this game make you angry, too?). Check out one of the levels below:
Gameplay looks to be mostly the same, except a reduction to the cost of the Tesla Tower, and the Ice Tower (which we tend not to use) being made a stock item. One level, Racer Gardens, will be based on a track from the not-quite-so-successful PixelJunk Racers, which Q-Games boss Dylan Cuthbert says is "really tough." Check out the PlayStation blog post for a full list of new stuff Encore will feature.
The price for the expansion is yet to be announced, but US gamers can expect to get their hands on Encore tomorrow.
