22cans' smartphone title The Trail will be released for PC on Steam this summer, publisher Kongregate has said.
The game was released on iOS and Android late last year, and must have done reasonably well to warrant a port. The PC version has apparently undergone a complete redesign and rebuild, with greater depth to the skills and game strategy.
On PC the game will be priced at around $15, as opposed to the free-to-play model it adopted on smartphones.
Our goal with The Trail: Frontier Challenge was to take the core gameplay and narrative of The Trail on mobile and reimagine it for Steam players,” creator Peter Molyneux said. PC players are looking for a completely immersive and uniquely challenging experience and I think they will be pleased with what we've created.
The gameplay has been developed to be far more strategic. For example, players will now have to balance what they carry in their packs against how fast and far they can travel. Bigger items are heavier and slow you down, smaller items are lighter, so you can travel faster.”
Kongregate co-founder Emily Greer added: One of our main goals as a publisher is to empower developers to create unique experiences for players on any platform.
So when 22cans told us their vision for a Steam version of The Trail, we were very excited to continue our partnership and bring The Trail: Frontier Challenge to a new audience. PC players will be pleased with the thoughtful approach the team took to adapting the concept of The Trail into a more strategic, immersive vision for Steam.”
