Karateka remake arrives on Steam


9:30 PM on 12.03.2012



Arriving just a few weeks after its debut on Xbox Live Arcade, Karateka is now available for PC via Steam. This is the remake of Jordan Mechner's first ever game, a classic title for the home computers in the mid-80s. This Steam version is currently 10% off at £6.29 and $8.99. There will also be an iOS and PlayStation Network version of Karateka forthcoming.

To celebrate the game's 30-year anniversary (development started on Karateka in 1982), Mechner and Liquid Entertainment are releasing a series of developer videos which will show how Karateka was re-designed in 2012. Maybe even more interesting is an ebook release of Jordan Mechner's own diaries from 1982-85 throughout the development of Karateka. That's sure to be a really revealing read from the man who went onto create Prince of Persia and The Last Express.

The Tomorrow Children might just push me into buying a PS4

The Tomorrow Children was one of the more intriguing, albeit overlooked announcements out of this year's gamescom and the more I hear about it, the better it sounds. And there's plenty left to hear -- the team at Q-Games had ...more

There's going to be a Bloodborne alpha

Seeing the words "Bloodborne" and "alpha" together instantly cured my morning grogginess, but the feeling was fleeting: the "small-scale test" is only meant for European gamers, currently. Sony Computer Entertainment Europe h...more
