Frima Studio  has announced that couch co-op platformer Chariot  is now available on Steam , following its PlayStation 4 and Xbox One releases earlier this fall. In Chariot, a princess and her fiancé venture deep into the royal catacombs to find a final resting place worthy of His Majesty. Featuring stunning environments and a wealth of challenges along the ride, Chariot tests players’ wits and teamwork in order to survive their perilous journey. Chariot is a finalist for eight awards, including Game of the Year, at The Canadian Videogame Awards being held November 21.
In Chariot, players guide the King’s funeral casket through richly colored landscapes by using physics-based mechanics, such as swinging, riding, pulling and pushing. At times, you’re collecting jewels at high speeds down steep ramps, and a moment later, you’re carefully traversing treacherous cliffs. Alone or with a friend, Chariot offers the thrill ride of an afterlife!
“Chariot has really taken off – no pun intended – on consoles, and we’re thrilled to launch on Steam,” said Frima Executive Producer Martin Brouard. “While you can play the campaign with a partner, Steam is an excellent platform to take on the journey solo.”
Chariot is available for $14.99 on Steam, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with a Wii U release date to be revealed soon. On Steam, Chariot is optimized for controller use, but keyboard controls have also been implemented. Chariot’s mesmerizing soundtrack is also available for $3.99 or bundled with the game for $17.99.
