Oh man! It’s so good to be back on the PlayStation Blog! PlayStation is where Joe Danger and our little studio began, so it feels really good to be able to announce that we’re bringing Joe Danger and its sequel Joe Danger 2: The Movie to PlayStation Vita next year! Our team owes so much to the PlayStation community…
We released Joe Danger on PS3 all the way back in 2010, which seems pretty much like a decade ago now. To us, anyway. Joe Danger was inspired by our love for the fun, colourful and challenging games that we grew up playing on SNES and Megadrive, and with your help our little fat stuntman gained a load of fans and highscore chasers, which made us incredibly happy (and frustrated with our skills at our own game).
Hello World! I can’t describe what this feels like. Joe Danger 2 is released on PlayStation 3 today. This is both the most exciting and nerve wracking day of my life.
Two years ago Hello Games released Joe Danger for PSN. We were four friends, we were broke, so we had to release the game. People loved it, but to us it wasn’t finished, there was so much more we wanted to do. If we could have, we’d have spent two more years, with twice as many people! Luckily that’s what the support of our fans and community has allowed us to do.
We’ve had a lot of fun making this game, but plenty of ups and downs too. I wanted to share a little behind the scenes video that our artist Grant made. Hopefully it gives a flavor of what it’s like to be part of Hello Games, and the excitement we feel today. (more…)
Hello World! It’s great to be back on the PlayStation Blog so soon! I’m here to tell you something surprising! Joe Danger 2 is coming to PlayStation gamers very soon – next week in fact! That’s October 10th in Europe!
PlayStation owners are getting a huge exclusive DLC pack of bonus content too. I’d love to tell you more about it, but first I’m going to have to explain a little about how we make games.
When we make a game, we make it for ourselves. We play it every day, getting better and better at it. The great thing is that you get rid of every snag and rough edge, but then we let our friends play, and realise it has become too hard! (more…)
Two years ago, three friends and I made the original Joe Danger. The PlayStation community then took us under its wing and helped make it the huge success it became. Since then we’ve been working incredibly hard to create the follow up, Joe Danger 2: The Movie. Finally, today we can announce that Joe is coming home to the PlayStation Store very, very soon.
What I really can’t wait for is the surprises we have in store for PlayStation gamers. This has been a total labour of love for us, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what people think of the game. (more…)
When my three friends and I first got together as Hello Games and started work on Joe Danger, we could only dream of the success it’s already achieved.
More important than any of that is the amazingly supportive response we’ve had from the PlayStation community. That’s why, for the last couple of months, we’ve been trying to cater to as many requests from the community as we can. Lots of people asked for a trial, so we put a huge one together with hours of gameplay, for those people who still can’t decide if Joe Danger is awesome or not. As of Tuesday, it’s now available worldwide.
Yesterday we also released something we call the “People’s Patch”. It answers pretty much every piece of feedback we’ve had from the community. It’s something for fans to get really excited about, and if you haven’t played the game before, you’re in for a treat. It’s totally free, and all you have to do is boot Joe Danger up to get all this new cool stuff.
For instance, now you can save, playback and upload your greatest stunt spectaculars to YouTube. After all, what’s the point of being the world’s greatest stuntman if you can’t show your friends?
Here’s something else we’re really excited about – we’re going to be showcasing the very best user created levels at joe-danger.com. Go there now to find out more and enter our level building competition.
Also, there is a totally new, free level made by Hello Games available for download right now.
Here are some of the key new features:
Level sharing and more levels
Replays and YouTube support
More multiplayer levels
New level editing props
Hello Games wants to genuinely thank the community again for their amazing support. We really hope you enjoy the new features or just take the time to try out the trial. Go and spread the word
