Tate Multimedia announced that you can get Kao The Kangaroo: Round 2 for free during the first day of launch on Steam. On June 1st the game will be available for $0.00. That’s right all you have to do to acquire the game is head to the Steam store page and click on the “Add to Account” button.
It’s actually way easier than I thought it would be. You don’t even need the Steam client installed. Simply log into your Steam account and navigate to the store page and click the button. It’s really that simple. You can then download the game later. It works well for anyone looking to get their hands on the game without having to pay the incredibly high fee of… $1.99 for the game’s normal price.
Yes, that’s right. Tate Multimedia will be selling Kao The Kangaroo: Round 2 for just $1.99 after the free period has ended on June 2nd.
This is to help push the game into the libraries of people who missed out on the 3D platform sequel that originally appeared back on the PS2, Xbox, and GameCube in 2003.
The 3D platformer sees players in control of Kao, running and jumping through jungle-themed levels where you scale vertical tree houses, snowboard down a pipe, navigate through a river, and swim around under water.
It was one of the few games to take the animal with attitude concept and the standard 3D platformer genre, and then evolves it by adding a bunch of additional mini-games and mechanical layers to the gameplay stew. It’s amazing but these are the sort of games we don’t get nowadays other than what Nintendo produces.
You’ll be able to play through 25 different levels, five different worlds, and defeat 30 different enemies.
New to the re-released version is Steam cloud saving, achievements, HD and UHD resolution support, and controller support for Xbox controllers, DualShock, and obviously the Steam controller.
If you get the game today on June 1st, you don’t lose anything other than 950MB of hard drive and a little bit of bandwidth.
If you want to check the game out you can do so right now, for free, for one day only, by visiting the Steam store page.
