Rymdkapsel developer Grapefrukt Games is bringing the low-key space strategy game to Windows, Mac and Linux in January 2014, said Martin Jonasson, the sole member of the studio, in an email to Polygon today.

The PC version will be sold through Steam, and a DRM-free version will also be available "with some extra goodies" elsewhere, said Jonasson. On PC, Rymdkapsel will feature two new game modes, with new monoliths and missions, as well as an extended soundtrack.

Rymdkapsel is already available on a variety of mobile devices — it was originally released this past May on PlayStation Mobile, and then came to iOS and Android in August. According to Jonasson, he's releasing the game on computers to mark a recent sales milestone: Grapefrukt has now sold more than 200,000 copies of Rymdkapsel.

"A big part of that is of course the Humble Mobile Bundle," said Jonasson. Rymdkapsel is one of nine games being sold in the third Humble Mobile Bundle, which expires tomorrow, Dec. 3, at 2 p.m. ET. It's also available free on PlayStation Network for a few more days, as part of Sony's Festive Giveaway promotion.
