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.

I'm afraid not enough people will play Hohokum

Hohokum isn't an easily described game. It's one of those cases where it's not until you try it for yourself that you fully grasp the appeal, which can be a tough sell. Yeah, the whimsical art direction is terrific, but the ...more
