Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2, the excellent motorbike physics-based puzzle platformers from Hello Games, are both coming to Steam along with some extra content. "Joe is finally free of all that silly console exclusivity," apparently, which is good news for everyone with a Steam account.
Hello Games' Sean Murray announced the move in a new press release. “It’s weird," he expains, "PC is actually Joe Danger’s birthplace. We couldn’t get hold of devkits when we started out, so I coded my first ever PC engine for the original Joe Danger, and we ended up developing the entire game on PC.
“I feel like the PC version has been brewing forever – but only played by four of us here in the office. You’ll probably have seen us lugging huge PCs around to show the game off at game expos (and to awesome press people like yourself). It’ll be lovely to finally get to see it released!"
Extra levels, higher resolutions and Steam Workshop support have been confirmed for both versions. Release dates and prices have not.
"I think we have some kind of OCD at Hello Games,” Murray concludes. “We have a rule that whenever we put our games onto a new platform we have to add something. We can’t just do a quick and dirty port. We have some more surprises to announce for the PC editions of Joe Danger as we lock them down."
