PikPok, Wellington, 2 February 2016: Leading games publisher PikPok today announced the launch of their original titleBreakneck on Steam Early Access for Windows and Mac. The launch expands the availability of the title from iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, and Android phones, tablets, and Android TV.
Breakneck sees players speed across an Earth ravaged by an alien occupation, chased by relentless pursuers. Flying close to obstacles boosts speed but increases danger, and the valuable resources that litter the landscape need collection, requiring precision and risk-taking by the player. Featuring state-of-the-art graphics, daily environment changes, and action-packed surprises, Breakneck is a game thrill-seekers of all ages will enjoy.
“We are very pleased to bring Breakneck to desktop, and to take advantage of what Steam has to offer,” said Mario Wynands, Managing Director of PikPok. “Our studio history across console, desktop and mobile has uniquely positioned us to deliver compelling, scalable experiences across multiple platforms. It is an exciting time to be delivering on that potential as gamers now have the opportunity to play in more places and on more devices than ever before.”
Although already a compelling package, PikPok plans to use the Early Access period to experiment with a Virtual Reality mode, add Big Picture mode support, identify further optimization opportunities, and take on board community feedback for future features.
