Ms. Splosion Man update adds Steamworks in place of Games for Windows Live

Twisted Pixel Games' explosive platformer, Ms. Splosion Man, is now using Valve's Steamworks in place of Games for Windows Live, the developer announced today.

Steamworks allows developers to add functions such as match-making, user-created content and achievements. With the update, Ms. Splosion Man now includes cloud saves and achievements.

Microsoft posted a support update last year signaling the end of Games for Windows Live services on July 1, 2014, effectively endangering online functions for many games such as Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition and Dark Souls.

The game was released via Steam in 2013, though it's also available for Xbox 360, iOS devices and Windows Phone 7. In Ms. Splosion Man, players guide the eponymous, explosive character through levels filled with puzzles, traps and enemies.

Ms. Splosion Man is currently on sale for $2.49 on Windows PC as part of Steam's Summer Sale, which kicked off today.
