Majesco Steams up Psychonauts
Majesco's acclaimed platformer joining Advent Rising, BloodRayne, on Valve's digital distribution service.
So far, Valve Software's digital distribution service, Steam, has been used as a carrier for top-tier AAA titles like Half-Life 2, independently developed fare like Darwinia and Rag Doll Kung Fu, and even casual titles like Bejeweled 2 Deluxe and AstroPop. However, Steam is now also acting as a second chance for some frontline titles that fell a bit flat at retail.
Valve and Majesco Entertainment today announced a digital distribution agreement that will see a number of the latter's big-name PC games show up on the former's Steam service. Starting today, Advent Rising, BloodRayne, and BloodRayne 2 are available on Steam, with the Double Fine-developed Psychonauts set to be offered early next month.
BloodRayne 2 and Advent Rising are available for $19.99, while the original BloodRayne fetches $9.99 on the service. Psychonauts is not yet priced, but gamers who purchase any of the games in their first two weeks of availability can get 10 percent off the purchase price.
