Last week, we learned that Tate Multimedia was reviving the somewhat obscure 3D platformer series Kao the Kangaroo with a PC release of Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2. That game is the most popular within the series, so it makes sense that it would be the title to bring the series back into the limelight on PC. The response to this announcement was huge within the niche 3D platformer community and Tate Multimeida noticed. To show their appriciation for the fans, Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 is actually free on PC for its day on the market.

That’s right, you can get the game for free on its Steam page right now. Considering that Tate Multimedia plans on only making the price $1.99 afterwards, this PC re-release is truly for the fans. The press release announcing the game’s launch even stated that making Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 free on launch day is their “way to say ‘thank you’ for all Kao fans out there.”

Today’s PC release of Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 also clarified some of the questions surrounding the port’s specific enhancements. Tate Multimedia has confirmed that the PC release supports Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud Saving, HD resolutions, and PS4 and Xbox 360 controllers. While I haven’t tried the port yet so I can’t speak to its quality, this definitely seems to be the most easily accessible and best looking version of Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 if you are interested in the game.

You can check out some screenshots of the game running on PC below. Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 is available for free today on PC and will only cost $1.99 starting tomorrow.
