Howdy! With the next generation of consoles finally upon us, we’re super happy to announce that we’re bringing Joe Danger to two new platforms! 😀
Yes, Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2 are coming to Mac and Linux via Steam real soon!
Mac and Linux actually bring the number of platforms Joe Danger’s on to – OMG – six! And that’s not even counting the PS Vita version that’s on the way! All this blows my mind. When we set out making Joe Danger we had no idea he would end up on so many machines. He’s probably out of control, come to think of it.
Haha, we joke! Joe is at his best when he’s running rampant! The Mac and Linux versions of JD follow the PC versions we released on Steam back in June, and they’ll have the same features, including enhanced graphics options and Steam features including leaderboards, ghost replays and sharing levels through Workshop.
There’s also special extra content in Joe Danger 2: a special Minecraft environment you can build levels in plus Steve as a playable character, and the full Team Fortress 2 mercs lineup, from the Spy to the Heavy, to play as. We’ve also included in the Ultra Hard PC Challenge on the main menu of each game, which presents the most challenging level so you can understand the true nature of Joe Danger, which is, of course, hardcore, teeth-grinding, controller-smashing joy 😀
Here’s a reminder of what the PC version looks like.
The Linux version is especially exciting for us because it means Joe will be ready for SteamOS. Basically, for us, the PC versions are the ultimate versions of Joe Danger, and we always saw Joe Danger as a living room game with you and your friends taking turns on levels, beating each others’ scores and shouting at each other like we do. So it’s kind of fitting that JD will be appearing on Linux just as SteamOS comes along and helps Steam move into the living room.
Joe Danger for Mac and Linux will release on Steam soon. Real soon. We’ll follow up even sooner to let you know when! 😀
