Joe Danger: Updates Incoming, Port Possible
Joe Danger launched exclusively on PSN earlier this year, becoming something of a success for four-man outfit Hello Games. But what will the team – which has already began t expand – start working on next?
"We've asked a lot of people what they'd most like us to do," Murray told Gamasutra. "Would they like us to port other versions or start on something new? That's a really tough question to answer. The thought of us just plugging away for the next few months on some lazy port makes me feel a bit ill."
Back in July Murray criticised XBLA's lack of support for indie developers.
"If and when we do bring out a PC version or Xbox 360 version of Joe Danger, it'll have to be something different and interesting in its own way. For right now though, our passion is to support that PS3 community that's already been so supportive of us."
Hello Games is intent on giving the community what it wants, and has plans for new content and modes: "We're desperately trying to do everything that the community is asking for right now," confirmed Murray.
Joe Danger has been released in numerous other territories including Mexico and Hong Kong, and Hello Games has a patch ready that addresses all of the community's feedback.
"The patch was called "The People's Patch" and added really tiny things like support for a very old TV owned by a man who lives in Nottingham, as well as really huge things like support for global level sharing," added the developer.
"We're also getting ready to release in Japan. That's a huge bunch of people who haven't got the opportunity to play yet, and who don't normally get decent versions of Western games released on PSN or download."
Murray also unveiled that new level packs and modes are set for release in the next month, with more info coming soon.
