Joe Danger racing to PC this year

After a few years of touring one-stoplight towns, slowly building fame, the world's greatest stuntman is ready to play the finest venue in the land. Splendid stunty platformer Joe Danger and its sequel Joe Danger 2: The Movies are jumping from consoles to PC later this year, developer Hello Games announced today. The Joe Danger series sees its eponymous super stuntman racing and bouncing around movie sets on stuntbikes, mine carts, jet packs, and other Hollywood staples. You go fast and jump and collect things and earn points and sometimes punch people or flee dinosaurs. The PC editions are naturally wearing their most spangly jumpsuit, replete with new levels, Steam Workshop support for sharing levels you make, and ghost recording with Steamworks sharing. "Actually, PC is Joe Danger's spiritual home," Hello Games founder Sean Murray said in the announcement. "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." Joe Danger debuted on PlayStation 3 in 2010, opening on XBLA release in late 2011 then exported to iOS earlier this year. The sequel followed on PSN and XBLA in fall 2012.
