One Of Australia’s Greatest Games Rereleases Tomorrow

Ty The Tasmanian Tiger is easily one of the most iconic games developed in Australia. Developed by Australian company Krome Studios, the original released on PS2, Xbox and Gamecube in 2002. It was even published by EA Games.

Krome Studios are now back with Ty The Tasmanian Tiger HD which is releasing tomorrow (December 13th) on Steam. The game has been in early access since March but the developers felt like now was the right time to properly release the game.

You can find the full list of new features below:

  • Support for XInput compatible controllers (main testing done on an X360 controller)
  • full screen or windowed option, maintaining a 16:9 aspect ratio, initially tested up to 2560×1440. Full screen runs at the desktop’s resolution by default and can be changed in the UI. Windowed mode can be resized by dragging the edge of the window or via the UI.
  • Polished Keyboard and Mouse controls
  • Steam achievements
  • Leaderboards for the time-attacks
