Today, the 29th of May, 2013, we are delighted to announce that bitSmith’s Ku: Shroud of the Morrigan will be available on PC, Mac & Android.
For those of you who don’t know – Ku: Shroud of the Morrigan is an Action Adventure in which Ireland’s ancient past and economic present collide.
You play as young Ku, who must venture out in to a broken and strange world for the first time. You will have to battle monsters, solve puzzles and retrieve an ancient treasure from the goddess Morrigan.
It blends a hand-drawn, Celt-Punk art style with a storyline based on ancient Irish legend, with a dash of subtle commentary on the grim reality of economic collapse. The aesthetic of Irish and Celtic cultures are prevalent, and the game offers full Irish language support.
The iOS version, which launched earlier in the year, received some glowing reviews and broke the top 100 in the US paid charts. Edge Magazine awarded it their “iOS Game of the Month” for February and others called it “imaginative, charming and persistently attractive” and “a hugely promising debut”.
There is a mini-site available at http://kuthegame.com/ with videos, screen-shots and downloads.
The PC and Mac versions come with controller support and will be available through the Humble Store widget on the bitSmith Games site at http://bitsmithgames.com/
The PC version will be available on http://www.gamersgate.com/ from today.
