Indie developer 17-BIT has just confirmed that its Skulls of the Shogun game will be released worldwide on January 30, offering support not only for Windows 8 computers, but also for the tablet-oriented Windows RT operating system.
The company will offer the game at a special launch price, with a full license to cost $9.99 (€7.5), instead of the regular $14.99 (€11.2).
17-BIT’s founder says the company has decided to port the game to Windows 8 mostly because fans asked them to, so bringing support for devices running Windows 8 was only a matter of time.
“We've heard from the community that they want to get Skulls of the Shogun not only on their Xbox 360, but on all of their Microsoft devices,” said 17-BIT founder and CEO, Jake Kazdal.
“By discounting the Windows 8, Windows Surface, and Windows Phone versions of Skulls, we hope everyone can dive into the Skulls Anywhere asynchronous single-player and multiplayer gameplay.”
