Awesomenauts Coming To Macs

Ronimo has announced work on Mac and Windows PC versions of Awesomenauts, an online multiplayer platforming battle arena game currently only available for consoles. The game features 3 on 3 multiplayer action, 8 unique characters, and a variety of unlockable items.

A few years ago we at Ronimo set out to create a great platforming MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) game. This resulted in the release of Awesomenauts for XBLA and PSN a few months back. A great looking and addictive sidescrolling MOBA, a first for consoles. But ever since we've shown the first screens and videos, we've been getting tons of requests to also bring this game to PC.

Well, we agree! We love the idea of being able to play Awesomenauts with our friends through Steam using our trusty mice and keyboards. So we went ahead and actually built it! To speed things up we've been getting a lot of help and support from our fans, quickly translating new texts and giving us valuable feedback on the balance and new controls.

Within a month everyone will be able to grab a copy of Awesomenauts on Steam! Soon you will be able to experience the game using your favorite input devices. A Mac version will follow shortly afterwards.

And if that's not soon enough we'll be starting a closed beta within the week! Keep an eye on our facebook to stay up to date.

We plan to support all versions of Awesomenauts with updates and new content in the future! Starting with the console patch, which will go live very soon!
