Back in October, Overhaul Games released the HD version of MDK 2 that featured 10 levels, 20 enemies, brand new HD graphics, enhanced audio and tweaked gameplay. The game was available exclusively via BeamDog’s website and as you’d expect, a lot of PC gamers cried out for a Steam release. Fast forward a couple of months and here we are today with some good news for all of you who wanted to buy this remake via Valve’s distribution service.
According to Steam, MDK 2 HD will be releasing on July 30th. Although there is no price yet for the Steam release, we expect it to be similar to the one of BeamDog’s (around $14.99).
Kurt Hectic in his snazzy suit with ribbon chute is back to save the universe. This time he is teamed with the genius Dr. Hawkins and the 6-legged gun-toting robotic dog, Max. Together they must out-sneak, out-blast and out-think their enemies as they attempt to reclaim the Earth from a vile alien menace.
All three characters – Kurt, Doctor Hawkins and Max are playable, each has his own levels, powers and items and a completely different gameplay focus. Kurt is about stealth and sniping, the Doctor has a few direct attacks but also has the ability to create items and effects out of simple household objects, while Max is a cigar smoking, quad gun toting demolition squad of a dog.

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. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
