As they certainly aren’t busy enough handling not one but now two Glorkian Warrior games with comic artist James Kochalka, indie studio PixelJam have just announced that they’re on the verge of releasing three new games at once in mid-December — a self-bundled release that will also include downloadable versions of previously web-only titles.

At top is the first of the new games, Potatoman Seeks the Troof, which the studio will only say is a “short and intense platformer”, with the other, Bitku, pictured below (and quietly teased for weeks on the PixelJam tumblr): a web-app that “lets you create simple comics / stories expressions, based on a theme, with a limited amount of random assets” with a multiplayer add-on expected to come in the new year.

The bundle will also include a new 8-track LP from PixelJam co-founder Miles Tilmann, with a new visualizer for each track (and the ability to use any of those for your own music) — a very exciting prospect if you’ve been exposed to his musical past, as his 2003 “Over & Through” EP (still my favorite of his releases — try especially track 6!) below should attest to.

Finally, PixelJam says they’ll also be tossing in a downloadable version of their holiday-festive pinball game Snowball & the somewhat Canabalt/Hook Champ-esque mini-game Marathon of Doom, a challenge-mode version of their fan-favorite Dino Run series.

Keep your eye on the PixelJam tumblr or Facebook page to see more as the date draws near.
