Joe Danger's latest daredevil stunt is to ride both his games, Joe Danger
and Joe Danger 2: The Movie
, onto PCs via Steam. UK indie studio Hello Games told us a number of tweaks are coming to the PC versions, including Big Picture Mode and Steamworks support. The latter is for the games' level editors. which on PC feature "all the secret controls" Hello Games used to build both tricksters.
Both games will support gamepad, mouse and keyboard controls. Other tweaks and additions include ghost records of other players for both
games, and new levels. Prices and release dates are still to come.
"It's weird, PC is actually Joe Danger
's birthplace," Hello Games' Sean Murray told us. "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."
We expect a few more people will be playing it when it comes to Steam. We gave the XBLA version of Joe Danger 2: The Movie
a wheelie good four stars in our review
, saying that it does the two things puzzle-racers should do: " tug at your need to beat them, and then tug at your need to beat them better."
