Mark of the Ninja is Sneaking onto Steam
The 2D stealth game your friends won't shut up about is finally coming to the digital distribution service your friends won't shut up about.
Steam. Love it or hate it (why would you hate it, you monster), it's become both the number one distribution service for all of PC gamingdom, and also the stamp of legitimacy for many smaller titles. Hence why many indies are upset about the Greenlight gatekeeping fee thing. But nevermind that for now- the good news is that the sneaky, pokey, trolly 2D stealth game Mark of the Ninja is finally headed to Steam, and developer Klei Entertainment are interested in giving us the best possible Mark of the Ninja experience.
Encouragingly, Klei seems very dedicated to doing this port up in proper fashion. Lead designer Nels Anderson told me that Klei’s currently tweaking mouse-and-keyboard controls until they’re just so, and he also noted that Games For Windows Live absolutely, positively won’t be involved in any way, shape, or form.
“I’m primarily a PC person myself, and I’m not okay in any way with this feeling like a shoddy port,” said Anderson. “It’s my intention that this is a full, proper version of the game in its own right.”
Mark of the Ninja will be creeping up onto Steam on October 16th at $14.99 US.
Thanks, Rock, Paper, Shotgun.
