MONTREAL – October 24, 2013 – Publisher Meridian4 and developer Studio Evil today announced Syder Arcade has landed on Steam for PC and Mac and is now available for $7.99, 20% off the original price for this week only. Syder Arcade is a free-scrolling, multi-directional arcade shooter with an uncompromising old-school experience and furiously challenging missions.
Now that fans have helped pushed Syder Arcade through Steam Greenlight, new features exclusive to Steam include big picture and controller support, Steam leaderboards, an astounding number of new achievements, trading cards and localization in English, Italian, German and Spanish. More updates including a new ship and an all-new survival mode will be available soon. The updates won’t stop there as developer Studio Evil plans to implement new ships and levels in 2014.
“It didn’t take long for us to become addicted to Syder Arcade’s fast-paced action and we identified with that nostalgic feeling the team at Studio Evil was going after,” said Andy Sher, CEO at Meridian4. “We want to continue to bring gems like Syder Arcade from independent developers to big platforms like Steam, and we’re thrilled to have helped make Syder Arcade available to the Steam audience.”
“We can’t wait for our fans on Steam to get their hands on Syder Arcade,” said Luca Marchetti, CEO at Studio Evil. “We owe a huge thanks to Meridian4 who helped get Syder Arcade off the launching pad on Steam Greenlight, and of course to the fans for all the upvotes. We won’t let you down!”
