“After tremendous feedback from players and press in 2014 and by popular request, we decided to develop a desktop version of Perils of Man. With the help of our friends at Vertigo Games, who completed the critical last phase of development, we are now in the position to launch the PC and Mac versions as well as the full iOS version. We are grateful for the support and understanding that our community has shown us these past months.” said Mike Huber of IF Games.
The Steam release will entail the complete Perils of Man series, spanning 7 chapters of haunting adventure on PC and Mac with support for Steam Cloud and built-in Steam Achievements, for $9,99 / €9,99 / £9,99.
