Big, special news today! We’re incredibly happy to finally announce that Joe Danger is coming to PC! Through Steam, you’ll be able to play both of our our babies, Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2: The Movie! Finally!
We’re bringing a bunch of new PC-specific features to Joe Danger on Steam. Actually I think we have some sort of OCD because we can’t just port games. Our rule is to always add something new.
So there’s new content, including new levels. Joe Danger has never looked so good because we’ve added lots of graphic quality and resolution settings. It supports gamepad, and now mouse and keyboard, too. Full Steam Big Picture Mode means you can play it at 1080p with 16xAA on your TV (this looks soooo nice). And we’ve added ghost recording to both Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2 and integrated it with Steam, so you can compete with people right in the game.
But I think the big thing for any PC game is editing and modding. Joe Danger has always had a level editor, but now it’s really fully featured. It’s got mouse support and all the secret controls we made both games with. It’s also integrated with Steam Workshop, so you can really easily browse levels and click to see them pop up in your game.
PC is actually Joe Danger’s birthplace. I coded my first ever PC engine when we started making the original Joe Danger back in 2009, and when we showed it off at game expos and to game journalists it was running on a PC we had to lug around. It’ll be so good to finally get to see Joe Danger released on the platform it was made on!
This isn’t all we’re bringing to Joe Danger on PC, though! Keep an eye out for some announcements about some really special extra things we’re working on… These are so exciting. I can’t wait to tell you more. Follow us on Twitter or friend us on Facebook in case I blab my mouth off!
