A pair of console exclusives are shedding that skin and jumping ship to the PC, as Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2: The Movie are due to arrive on Steam later this year. The first game arrived on the PS3 and 360 back in 2010 and 2011, respectively, with the sequel following last year. Developer Hello Games didn't say when both titles are set for their PC debut, but expect more information on that later. What we do know is the games are being tweaked to support Steam Big Picture and Workshop, as well as getting some additional levels.
Hello Games' Sean Murray is looking forward to both Joe Danger games finally being on the PC, as he had the following to say:
Actually, PC is Joe Danger’s spiritual home. I coded my first ever PC engine when we started making the original Joe Danger back in 2009, because we couldn't get hold of console devkits. So it's incredibly exciting to be finally able to release it.
The PC versions aren't just going to be a simple port either, if the additional levels and Big Picture/Workshop support haven't entirely sold you. Murray added:
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.
Steam Workshop support means gamers can create their own levels for everyone else to try out, which should add a ton of life to Joe Danger. Well, not Joe Danger himself, but the games of the same name. It'll be interesting to see what those other "surprises" are that Murray hinted at; maybe graphical enhancements or online multiplayer. We'll just have to wait for future updates from Hello Games.
