Well guys I been hard at work trying to get info out of Dylan Cuthbert from Q-games. After 3 emails in 1 week I was able to get real info straight from the horses mouth! Here it goes

If you don't want to read the emails here is what it is in a nutshell


Fact #1 - Patch coming AFTER PixelJunk Eden

Fact #2 - PixelJunk Eden to include trophies off start

Fact #3 - PixelJunk Monsters patch will include trophies due to the email spam hes been getting from fans and its popularity in general

w00T!

here are the exact emails and answers!

I sent him this ..first...


Email #1

Hi there, I am fan of PixelJunk Monsters and I love that game and I was hoping that since the 2.40 firmware is live, will the game be patched to use the trophy system? I Would love it PixelJunk Monsters had trophies, please make it happen =D

Reply when you can

Sincerely
Epic Legend

Answer #1

Hello there,



We are certainly considering it but nothing has been decided yet. PixelJunk Eden will have trophies from launch tho!

Email #2


Hi - It's me again :)

I read somewhere that you guys are making a free patch for PixelJunk Monsters and it stated that we can send several ideas to what you want. It also said that the patch might or should come out sometime in July along with a demo of PixelJunk Eden.

Here is the link to the source news - http://www.ps3fanboy.com/2008/06/13/pixeljunk-eden-gets-demo-in-july-monsters-may-get-free-patch/

Yes I did receive your reply sir regarding that the trophies are being considered. I just want to state again that trophies is really what I think should be in the next upcoming free patch or so. A lot of people on the ps3forums such as my myself and many others who are in love with PixelJunk Monsters are really anticipating trophies. Now I am not trying to sound pushy or anything but as a fan of the game and a customer I think it will be the best thing for both the customers and the developers of this great game. I don't know guys if your making any other games after Eden but if you are I'd sure like to see PixelJunk Monsters a new expansion or a whole new sequel and this time with trophies :)

Here is the example of how the fans want trophies - http://www.ps3forums.com/showthread.php?p=3041850&posted=1#post3041850

I'd delete my game too and I wouldn't care if they are not retroactive but as long as we them I will be one happy PixelJunkie =D

Sincerely
EpicLegend2k9

EDIT - I sent this email to contact@q-games.com and wasn't sure if you guys received so I just decided to sent to your directly since your the one who answered my question last time and also to make sure you guys did receive me email. Not meaning to spam email you or anything just wanted to send it to directly...

Answer #2

Hello there,

Yes, we are definitely considering trophies for the patch considering how popular they have proven to be!

Hopefully there is some way to patch them without having to make your current saved game obsolete.

Regards

Dylan


Email #3 the big one!

Hi

I was wondering Mr. Dylan if there is a good prediction on when you guys plan to release it? Would it be before PixelJunk Eden or after? Also when are we getting the demo of PixelJunk Eden, I heard it's gonna be around E3 so can we safely say on Thursday of the week after?

Now..pretend I was a betting man...and I was betting serious money on whether PixelJunk Monsters patch will include trophies...would it be a safe bet? What kind percent would it be if I was betting on such a deal? :) Can we safely say...75% or above 50%? If you can't say the percentage...when will you guys finally decide what the upcoming patch will include? Does not have to be an exact date but just an estimate ^_^ lol I feel like an idiot asking so many questions, it's just that I am so excited for trophies, pixeljunk eden, the patch and E3 at the same time....I just "have' to ask =D

Sincerely
EpicLegend2k9

and the Big Answer #3

Hello there,



It’s going to take a while to work out how to do the patch, and there are some other things we want to look into too, so I think it will be after the release of Eden (which of course has full trophy support).



If we release a patch it will most likely have trophies supported, considering the amount of fan mail we’ve had concerning this one feature!



Regards

YES TROPHIES COMING !!!

This is a sign! We just need to flood these developers with e-mails until they give in! We need to gather at least a million here and send e-mails to the developers of the best games and convince them to patch them with trophies! WE NEED TO START AN INTERNET REVOLUTION!!!!

I think its ok because he tells the same thing to other fans that email him. Besides it will make them as developers look better around everyone else because they are social with the fans unlike others..

Axm
07-07-2008, 04:45
He's a nice guy. I emailed him also a few days ago and he replied similarly. He's really not trying to officially confirm anything here. But just making it known that he thinks it would be great to patch it in the near future, but not that they are 100% going to.
Just that they would like to. So im thinking they will. But im not going to hold him accountable for it not happening if it doesnt.
I think it highly likely though. Maybe 75-80% chance.

This is good news, except the part about it coming after Pixel Junk Eden releases. Do we even know when PJE will release? Will it even be here this year? So I guess I won't be holding my breath for trophies in PJM.

I figured they would have to give trophy support to PJM since they would want to incorporated them in the next expansion and they might as well get on it sooner then later.

That's good news. I was really hoping PixelJunk Moster would get Trophies. Can't wait.

I actually just got home from a friend's house, and we were playing this game. This is one of the funnest games on PSN, especially the co-op mode. It's so much fun.

Grinchy
07-07-2008, 05:35
Awesome, I shouldn't have waited so long to get this game anyway, but now I have no excuse not to buy it.

Great news, and good work from Savage360. The guys at Q-games have officially gotten on my good side. In a way, I'm glad that they are devoted to PSN games only, and not gunning for full games like everybody else.

GameSpawn
07-07-2008, 05:42
Well that's nice considering I'm thinking of getting PJM. I just got the demo and finished a little of it. Before I never cared for it and didn't bother looking at anything about it or what it was. Hell, why didn't ANYONE tell me it was Tower Defense!? I thought it was just some cheeseball off the wall game like Patapon. Shoot, after playing the demo, THIS can be one addicting game.

It's also a very challenging game. It may look all bright and cute, but I can't even get past the first medium stage. It's like Tower Defense from Hell!

Great news, hopefully more developers follow the trend and start considering to patch their games with trophies. Does anyone have any idea when we should expect PixelJunk Eden? Another question, slightly off-topic, but I'm considering purchasing another PSN game, I already have Super Stardust HD, Pain and Calling All Cars, so it's either PixelJunk Monsters or PixelJunk Eden when it comes out, which one should I get?

NAJC
07-07-2008, 15:11
Hello there,

Yes, those details should all be announced during E3. Eden is really pretty damn good, even if I do say so myself, I'm looking forward to seeing how people respond to it!

Regards

Dylan Cuthbert
Q-Games Ltd

That's concerning PixelJunk Eden, so we will find out more about it at E3. Hopefully the same will be about trophies and PixelJunk Dungeons, but I'll email him about those now.

NAJC
07-07-2008, 15:37
I got a pretty standard reply when I asked him about trophies for PixelJunk Monsters and when we will see PixelJunk Dungeons. But, I did find out something a bit interesting, he supports Chelsea.



Hello there,

I'm sorry but there is no news regarding Dungeons or the Monsters trophy
patch yet. As soon as I can say something I will!

I support Chelsea of course.

Yes, that's what he told me when I asked him. That also prooves that we're not just getting some sort of automated response when we email him, as otherwise he wouldn't have put that bit in when I asked him.

Very good news indeed. Hey Savage, do you think you could send David Jaffe a few emails and see if Calling All Cars will get a patch too?

NAJC
07-09-2008, 17:42
Very good news indeed. Hey Savage, do you think you could send David Jaffe a few emails and see if Calling All Cars will get a patch too?

I was just thinking about that: Calling All Cars getting trophy support. It would encourage more people to buy the game and play it, so it would only help the developer if they decided to add trophies.

The opening post is slightly misleading. Fact 3 isn't really a fact is it ?... He said "If we release a patch it will most likely have trophies supported".

The key words being IF and MOST LIKELY. Sure it's a great sign but he's committed to nothing and they may still not bother at all.

It would be great though.

When you play, it gives you the option to "play online" to compare your rank by score.

I wonder if that network file also includes whether you got a rainbow on the levels or not, and if it does record that, then it seems like the game could have retroactive trophies. I mean an obvious trophy would be getting rainbow in all levels. Would be a shame to have to do it again.

FantasyStar

I would be excited about this - if i didn't find PJM so imposiible!!!! I've got one rainbow - one!! I always end up with one litttle guy dead and it's always the spiders.....I hate them so much......:(

Tyrien
07-19-2008, 13:38
How about Online co-op for Pixel Junk Monsters? It's rare I have a chance to sit down with one of my friends to play the game on co-op, let alone play it at all. They talked about online co-op with Eden and gave a good reason, that due to the nature of the gameplay it would be difficult to play if you had any lag at all. I fail to see where this becomes a problem with PJM though.

lupin23rd
07-20-2008, 22:54
Eden is out in the next couple of weeks, so if there is news on a trophy patch after that it won't be too far off (hopefully!)

Definitely hoping it will be retroactive heh

Holz55
07-21-2008, 19:02
I hate the spiders. They are so bloddy fast and there's lots of them too.:(

with the spiders in the earlier levels, it's a good idea to have arrow towers spread out throughout the map. (along their path at least) Arrows destroy spiders.

Does not sounds like a 100% confirmation to me...

If its not been started yet, then you won't see it for a month or so, as has to ber validated by Sony. Perhaps Europe might see it in 2012...

07-30-2008, 14:46
Great news, Trophy Support might convince me to give this game another go at. I wonder how much sales they will get when they release the patch with Trophy Support. Super Stardust HD sold a LOT when it got patched for Trophy Support.

yes but added them all up, 100% of the trophies have exactly the same amount of exp as any other PSN game will have (without expansion packs).

Also i only just got this game (through game sharing) as i didn't wanna buy it just for trophies then have it turn out bad. Luckily its ok but nothing i can sink my teeth into, i'll play it just for trophies i guess.

Shadownet46

no, they have not "officially" confirmed trophies i believe (not to say they AREN'T coming, just that we will hear an announcement before they release it)

Since this is out of the way....I would like to know if there are any updates regarding the PixelJunk Monster patch...and what is happening with the whole trophy support? I am very curios and still have a hope it will happen!"

Can we say "CONFIRMED"?

I bet it's going to be included in the patch with the difficulty slider. I hope it happens, because I love Monsters. I still haven't beat the whole thing yet, been trying to rainbow everything, but I'm right at the volcano!

I believe its their blog some where. And this won't be out yet being they just did Eden. Probably finishing this up.

Lamplitersniper
08-12-2008, 21:12
Where did todays date for this come from?

Last I talked to Dylan he said he couldnt release the release date yet...so I dont know how it would be TODAY if he couldnt even talk about when it would be out just a few days ago.

REFLEX
08-12-2008, 22:58
Looking forward to this, I really like the game, but I was never that good at this particular type. I have most of it done, but Im so busy playing other games that I never got too great at this one. I want that difficulty slider and Trophies. Gimme!

Alfrayer
08-12-2008, 23:26
so has anyone fired it up to check yet? and what exactly is "this space"

"Watch This Space" is an expression which has popular useage on any form on news media... It basically means, you will see the important news there but you gotta wait for it... But not long, which is why you gotta "watch".
I guess as he is saying it, he means... he will be the one confirming trophies ;)

easy mode is deffo a necessity on eden, i need one spectra on 7&8 and havent even started 9&10, but its soul destroying playing for an hour to get that 5th spectra then failing when your so close. i cant wait for the updates, any idea when they will put us out of our misery

Sylar
09-11-2008, 15:33
I think that would be sweet if they were able to create the patch so you don't have to start your game again. I don't have Pixeljunk Monsters but I can imagine it being a right pain in the toenail having to do it all again. But yeah I hope this patch comes out soon for all the Monster's players, since Eden has trophies its only fair ;)

where is the patch!!!

I too am waiting for the pixeljunk monsters patch. I seriously enjoyed this demo and played it way to many times. I wish I could get this game but no credit card and NO PSN CARDS out yet :(

When you guys get the trophy patch, please let me know what the requirements are. This game is awesome. :DD

Every time I see this thread bumped I think "This is it..trophy update!" but i'm always disappointed. I would like the difficulty adjustment patch more as I like the game but man is it hard...

VainZiler
09-19-2008, 02:41
I don't really care about the difficulty setting, I just want my trophies. The challenge is great enough, why tone it down?

Any updates on the trophy status; I haven't heard anything lately?

dharding
09-22-2008, 15:42
sorry to anyone that has gotten excited seeing this thread bump up to the top,i have no news, but was thinking from looking a games like sshd and pain, that what the devs seem to be doing to get something out of pre-trophy games, is create some additional content and make sure that some of the trophies require that content, that way they make a little money out of it aswell. so maybe this is taking a while because they are making new content for the game.

The reason this could be is in their research to make trophies retroactive. You have to think; depending what kinds of trophies they make, they have to try and find a way to make it retrospective; and only when they find the answer will determine what happens.

Because if the trophies can't be retroactive, no matter what they try, then they can just release notice. Either way, you have to realize what they are working with. Just have some patience.

I emailed q-games and received a reply from Dylan on September 26. I asked about the PJ monsters trophy parch and he said that they are definitely working on it and that more info will be out in the coming weeks. I have faith that we'll see the patch some time this month.

I'd hardly played the second island when I heard news of the patch so I stopped playing so I wouldn't have to play it all again. Is this patch ever coming? Come on already and release it, forget about it being retroactive.

Being a developer of the game said it was coming, I would say its more then a rumour. ;-]

I don't think that retroactive trophies are posssible as not one developer has been able to implement them so far so I don't see PJ being the first to do so. That's the reason I stopped playing after a few levels on the second island as I don't mind playing through the first island again but I don't want to have to do it all again on two islands.

btw: Is anyone else thinking that they are going to release the patch alongside a new third island? I hope they do!

Am I the only one thinking we're going to get a platinum trophy or two from this game? (One platinum per island)

PixelJunk Eden, Super Stardust HD, and Pain don't have platinums so I'm sure we're going to get a total of zero platinum trophies.

Though I agree with your point on Eden, I honestly don't think the team that worked on the trophies for SSHD had a real clue what they were doing. I mean come on now, doing co-op charge for 3 minuets...

I understand the mathematical reason behind it, but not the actual challenge portion of it. It doesn't make sense in the slightest for a gold trophy to be so damn easy to get as apposed to two silvers.

Well Warhawk did have retroactive trophies. They were able to pull it off because your account is linked to your PSN ID, so if you achieved certain ranks then that's not something that could be replicated with a copied save file.

PJM does have the online leaderboards, and I wonder if they can tell based on scores whether or not people got rainbows, or fulfilled other requirements for whatever trophies they are coming up with for the game. I really hope that "Get all rainbows" isn't a Gold trophy that isn't retroactive. That's just not going to happen again.

^^still doesn't understand.

If those two silver ones were gold, they would have to take out 8 points worth of trophies. The game would only have less than half as many trophies than it does.

The co-op trophy is gold because they wanted to throw in another gold, but could only "afford" that one trophy for the co-op add-on.

VainZiler
10-08-2008, 02:21
No, you're not understanding me...

I'd rather have less trophies if it means that the challenge and trophy type are actually fighting. If they actually did something more worth while, like maybe play through all 5 planets in co-op mode straight, then I'd have no complaints. But simply sitting like ducks for three minuets, a gold trophy does not make.

So you would rather have less trophies as opposed to more trophies.

If that means having actually meaningful trophies then yes, I would. I want to have a game whose trophies make sense to the challenge they're offering, so if that means having less trophies then so be it. Besides, if they all have an actual point value to them anyways, why cry over less trophies if in the end they equal to the same amount of points?
