PixelJunk Eden

PixelJunk Eden is a very atmospheric platform game where you control a small character that jumps and holds onto the environment to progress through its levels. I was drawn to Eden because of its incredible art style, by graphic designer and musician “Baiyon.” I also find the concept of the game very interesting: The player must grow the plants to reach their desired destination. In an interview with Baiyon, he explains that “in making the game, I focused on growth over destruction, on constructing rather than repairing.” I found this to be a thoughtful alternative to having a violent game.
