TowerFall is breaking free of its Ouya-exclusive shackles. The archery deathmatch game is on its way to PC, developer Matt Thorson has announced.

"Yes, I am working on TowerFall for PC. But it's going to take a couple months. There's going to be a ton of new content," Thorson broadcast via Twitter. He added the enhanced port will be priced somewhere in the neighborhood of $15 to $20.

The move isn't entirely unexpected. Thorson has voiced a desire to bring the title to a wider audience in the past. However, despite insisting the "Ouya version is doing great," the move follows reports of light hardware sales and desperate attempts to secure more exclusive content for the Android-based platform.
