Hello Games, the studio behind No Man’s Sky, has released an update for its debut title Dangerous Joe and its 2014 sequel Joe Danger Infinity. To celebrate the original game’s 10th anniversary, both games are released online for free.
Self-published in 2010, the side-scrolling platformer focuses on a humorous reckless driver. It laid the groundwork for two sequels (2012’s Dangerous Joe 2: The Movie and 2014 Joe Danger Infinity) and the studio’s later commercial breakthrough as a procedurally generated space survival simulation No Man’s Sky. According to Sean Murray, co-founder of Hello Games, the J . remakesoh Dangerm and Joe Danger Infinity has been working for several years.
“We have always been a secret shame about the success of No Man’s Sky left side Dangerous Joe unloved,” Murray told Polygon via email. “Joe holds a special place in our hearts. It was our first game when we were still four boys in a barn, trying to get attention. Joe helped our studio get a foothold and establish a company, but that’s also where we learned how to make games.”
For the past two years, Hello Games has been working on revisions for Dangerous Joe and Joe Danger Infinity, rebuilding the game through eight years of changes through the Unity Engine and adding some new features. 1.3 update for Dangerous Joe features a graphical overhaul, with improved visuals, higher frame rates, as well as gamepad and ProMotion support.
Previous owner of either Dangerous Joe and Joe Danger Infinity will receive free updates. For anyone unfamiliar and curious about Hello Games’ debut title, there’s no better time to give the series a try.
