Double Eleven is bringing Q-Games' original PixelJunk Shooter to Windows PC, Mac and Linux on Nov. 11, the company announced today.

PixelJunk Shooter, which originally launched for PlayStation 3 in December 2009, will be available through Steam and "selected partners" for $8.99 (or 6.99 Euro).

Double Eleven, a U.K.-based indie developer and publisher behind the PlayStation Vita LittleBigPlanet and Limbo port, will launch PixelJunk Shooters as part of its partnership with Kyoto-based Q-Games. The partnership was announced in June earlier this year and would bring the two studios together to collaborate on new game projects.

PixelJunk Shooter tasks players with piloting a spaceship through an underground labyrinth of different environments to save a group of stranded scientists. Players will have to solve puzzles embedded into the environment, manipulating elements including fire, ice and a strange ink-like substance in order to pass through. In addition to solving puzzles, players will have to take down oncoming enemies in order to progress.

The last game to launch from Double Eleven and Q-Games was PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD, which was released in July for PlayStation Vita, Windows PC, Mac and Linux.
