Coming back to PC is huge for Housemarque. As our first release, Outland doesn’t support mods, but its performance will let us test the waters of a community that is really open to user generated content and crowdsourcing. As a company, we feel that our style of creating games stems from the mod-scene and now making a leap back to PC feels a bit like returning home. Clearly a different home than it was 15 years ago, but we’d like to pick up from where we left off and see how we fit in now.

Outland, the hand-drawn 2D platformer is now finally available on Steam and priced at $9.99, 9.99€, and £6.99. An additional 15% discount will benefit the fans picking up the game during the first week.

The new trailer featured below focuses on the fast paced online co-op that allows adventurers to join forces with their friends.

Outland also features co-op only challenges and an Arcade Mode, where you will attempt to beat the levels against a set time and make your way into the online leaderboards.

Mac and Linux versions of Outland will become available on Steam later this year. A Special Edition of the game featuring a 90 page Artbook and the Original Soundtrack, featuring 29 tracks and over 1.5h of music, will be available soon after launch and sold separately as DLC.
