Q*bert Rebooted brings the franchise back to Steam, mobile and tablets
Q*bert is coming back this year in Q*bert Rebooted, a new game that will offer the original Q*bert experience in its pixelated 2D form as well as a 3D version with modern graphics and gameplay.
The multiplatform project is being co-developed by Gonzo Games and Sideline Amusements, who have licensed the Q*bert brand from the owner of the intellectual property, Sony Pictures Entertainment. The original Q*bert was released by Gottlieb in arcades in 1982.
Q*bert Rebooted will launch July 8 on Linux, Mac and Windows for $4.99 through Steam; that version will be playable with a mouse or a controller. After that, Gonzo and Sideline Amusements are planning to bring the game to Android and iOS, and then to Amazon's Kindle Fire and Barnes and Noble's Nook.
