Castle Crashers Officially Coming to Steam

When people who don’t own a PS3 or Xbox 360 look at these consoles, they probably think: I would really like one of those so I can play Halo 4, Uncharted 3, Skyrim or the upcoming Assassin’s Creed III. Although AAA releases are quite inviting, what has always appealed to me the most about the consoles is playing some exclusive indie games, such as Pac-Man Championship Edition DX, Fez, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 and of course Castle Crashers. Thankfully, those players who don’t have any of the aforementioned consoles will be able to play the latter on the PC, since Castle Crashers is coming out on Steam.

The side-scrolling beat ‘em up was originally released for the Xbox Live Arcade in 2008 (the PSN version, on the other hand, came out in 2010) and Castle Crashers was one of the first titles to start the trend of amazing independent games. Braid and Castle Crashers were followed by critically acclaimed gems, such as Super Meat Boy, Fez, Limbo and so on. In a recent update, Developer Behemoth confirmed that their game is finally making its way to the PC.

The Steam version of Castle Crashers will have some compelling features like integrated voice chat, Steam Cloud support, local and online multiplayer, gamepad support and of course, achievements. It’s worth noting that the port’s release date hasn’t been confirmed as of this writing, but taking into account that the game has been released in 2008 and it’ll finally come out on a platform in which I can play it, I won’t complain.
