Joe Danger and its sequel, Joe Danger 2: The Movie, will be released on the PC in 2013, UK-based indie studio Hello Games has confirmed.

Both games will be coming to Steam individually, with support for Steam's Big Picture mode and Steam Workshop for user-created levels. Additional levels for the PC versions of the game are also promised.

The original Joe Danger launched in 2010 as a PlayStation 3 exclusive, only to find its way to Xbox Live Arcade. The 2012 follow-up Joe Danger: The Movie is currently available on the PS3 and 360.

"Actually, PC is Joe Danger’s spiritual home," said Hello Games boss Sean Murray. "I coded my first ever PC engine when we started making the original Joe Danger back in 2009, because we couldn't get hold of console devkits. So it's incredibly exciting to be finally able to release it."

"We have a rule that whenever we put our games onto a new platform we have to add something. We can't just do a quick and dirty port," added Murray.

"We have some more surprises to announce for the PC editions of Joe Danger as we lock them down."

GameSpot awarded the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Joe Danger 2: The Movie an 8.0 back in 2012, calling the game a "stimulating ride that throws everything at you at once--in a good way."
