Our reader ‘Gianluca Manocchio’ has informed us about the Joe Danger series coming to the PC and… well… Hello Games has just sent us a press release for it. So good news everyone as both Joe Danger 1 and Joe Danger 2 will be hitting our beloved platform, though no release date has been revealed as of yet.
The Guildford-based indie developer will be releasing on Steam both its best-selling PSN and XBLA action titles: Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2: The Movie.
As well as brand-new levels, both games will come with special new PC-specific features. Enhanced graphic settings and resolutions take full advantage of modern PC power. Steam Big Picture support means you can play from the sofa with gamepad, while mouse and keyboard support means it feels at home on desktop screens, too.
Steam Workshop support allows you to easily browse and share your edited levels over Steam – click the level and it’ll pop up in the game. And ghost recording has been added to both Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2 and integrated with Steam so you can compete with other players right from within the game.
The founder of Hello Games, Sean Murray, said:
“I think we have some kind of OCD at Hello Games 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.
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.”

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
