Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2 coming to Linux and Mac 'real soon'

Hello Games will release Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2: The Movie on Steam for Mac and Linux "real soon," the developer revealed on its official blog.

The Mac and Linux versions of the games will include the same features in the Windows PC version, such as graphics options, leaderboards, ghost replays and sharing user-generated levels via Steam Workshop support. Joe Danger 2 will feature playable characters from Team Fortress 2 and a Minecraft environment where users can build levels.

"The Linux version is especially exciting for us because it means Joe will be ready for SteamOS," the blog reads. "Basically, for us, the PC versions are the ultimate versions of Joe Danger, and we always saw Joe Danger as a living room game with you and your friends taking turns on levels, beating each others' scores and shouting at each other like we do. So it's kind of fitting that JD will be appearing on Linux just as SteamOS comes along and helps Steam move into the living room."

Hello Games self-published both games on Windows PC through Steam in June with Joe Danger 2: The Movie receiving the Halloween-themed Undead Movie Pack expansion late last month. The developer teamed up with publisher Base Games to bring Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2: The Movie to retail stores worldwide in October.

Joe Danger was first released on PlayStation Network in 2010 and Joe Danger 2: The Movie launched on Xbox Live Arcade and PSN in 2012. PS Vita versions of both titles are expected to roll out next year.
