Q*Bert, the arcade classic, was originally released in the early eighties. Now, over thirty years later, it is being released again, this time for PC through Steam.
Relatively unknown developer Galaxy Pest Control worked on the game’s re-release, in conjunction with publisher Sideline Amusements and Sony Pictures Consumer Products, the latter of which is usually responsible for tie in products with select films.
The game, Q*Bert Rebooted, comes packing two modes: a classic, 2D mode practically identical to the original with modernized controls, and an enhanced 3D mode, the “Rebooted” version, that touts exciting new characters and gameplay reminiscent of the original with a fresh new look.
Look for the retro title, complete with the old game and the new, reimagined version, on Steam July 8th.
