Joe Danger Set To Debut On PSN
Anything called "Joe Danger" has got to be worth your attention. I mean...it's JOE DANGER!
The IGF-nominated title from Hello Games has been cleared to land on the PSN some time this spring, although we don't yet have a price for it. It will be exclusive to Sony's Network at first, although it wouldn't be surprising to see it end up on the XBLA and Steam at some point in the near future. Joe Danger is a side-scrolling biking game made by no more than four guys at Hello Games, which is pretty freakin' cool. As Sean Murray told Eurogamer:
"We're totally focused on getting the PS3 version out there right now. We're a tiny little team and this is a pretty big game, with some huge features like content sharing. We absolutely have our hands full, but once this is done, and if people are interested, we'd love to look at some other platforms.
We're aiming for a spring date, but with just the four of us, the common cold could delay the game. Just wish us luck."
Those four guys at Hello Games are acting as "developer, publisher and marketing" for the game, and Murray admits that, "at best, there's only one of those that we know how to do, and even that's arguable." He adds that Sony has been really helpful in getting Joe Danger prepared for the PSN, though; it's something we've heard from other small designers, too. We can't wait to give another original, entertaining downloadable title a try.
