Oceanhorn comes to Steam March 17th!



We have been working on something special these couple of months and now Oceanhorn is destined to debut on Steam March 17th 2015!

http://store.steampowered.com/app/339200/

Oceanhorn's Steam version will be a completely remastered version of the game, a huge graphical and technical overhaul, that makes the game more suitable for bigger screens and more powerful hardware.

Expanding to new horizons

The game has been redesigned for physical controls and it plays great whether you wish to play it with mouse / keyboard or with a gamepad!

All of the game's graphical assets have been tweaked for the PC platform. We added four times more polygons, sharper textures, normal maps, detail objects and new lighting effects such as dynamic ambient occlusion, soft shadows and realtime reflections to make Oceanhorn look stunning when played in 4K resolution.


Ambient Occlusion makes the cave entrance look darker

We have also read every review and feedback out there to improve the original game all around. We have remastered puzzles and taken care of spots that felt confusing or unfair for the players.

There are some new items in the shop that will hit the nail with people's demands. Second Chance Potion might be expensive, but you will be lucky to have it in a boss fight and Mana Refill Potion will be a priceless possession in Frozen Palace. What could be the function of the Ancient Arcadian Radar, though?

Overall, we are pretty damn happy with the outcome of this definitive version of Oceanhorn and we are truly honored to welcome the Steam audience to enjoy the adventures at Uncharted Seas!

  1. Whenever someone asks for an iOS game recommendation that isn't just a screen-swiping casual affair, I recommend Oceanhorn. And after reading your changes to the Steam version, my worries about it being the exact same thing as the iOS version were put to bed. You've definitely earned my money.

  2. Will not launch for Android because of piracy, and PC piracy does not exist by chance?

    1. Without going too deep into discussion here, we think that even though there is a lot of piracy on PC, Steam users are accustomed to buy their games.

      Many android users are not hardcore gamers and are used to get their games free (f2p). Before we come to android, we will have to figure out what is the payment mechanism that suits Oceanhorn's android version the best. We want to come up with something that will suit the marketplace as well as make the porting worthwhile for us developers.

    2. Im user of iphone and nvidia shield tablet and portablet with android. Im using iOS since 2010 and the piracy its the same with android and PC. iOS are more easy to get pirated its only a .ipa package. I played very game pirated and then bought them. Piracy always will exists. If you want people dont get it pirate offer a good game and extras like steam or gog.com bring.

  6. That is really nice! I really wanted to play this game, but I'm really not a fan of touch-screen controls.

    Is there a Mac version on the way too? Either through Steam or the Mac App Store?

  8. So you guys won't port to android but are ready to port to the easiest pirate happy platform?
    Legit android customers such as myself are left with no support because a few android users aren't buying their games - I'd pay full price for oceanhorn on my android devices...

    1. Which makes no sense why they wouldn't just release to Android too.

    2. Let's use your argument but now imagine it was coming to Android and NOT to PC because of PC piracy: "Legit PC customers such as myself are left with no support because of a few PC users aren't buying their games" See?

      The reason they are releasing on Steam is because PC people are less likely to pirate a game if it is released on Steam. Besides, it's not like they said they are NEVER coming to Android, they are simply looking at how to best deliver a product to the android community. If anything you should be happy, since it seems like you are going to get more bang for your buck.
