Badland makes a leap with it’s new Game of the Year Edition

Badland is a multi-award-winning side-scrolling action adventure game with innovative physics-based gameplay, deviously creative levels and stunning atmospheric graphics and audio.

Finnish developer Frogmind announced today that it’s incredibly successful platformer Badland would be coming to Xbox One in form of a “Game of the Year” edition – the game is said to have over 15 hours of gameplay and has over 100 levels and 100 co-op and 27 multiplayer death-match stages in an up-to-four-person local multiplayer mode.

The title will be released in Spring 2015 under Microsoft’s ID@Xbox program. The “Game of the Year” guise comes from Apple – they named the game “Apple iPad Game of the Year 2013” and scooped up several other BAFTA nominations as well as many other awards. The Frogmind CEO, Johaness Vuorinen said:

It’s such a relief to finally be able to say ‘yes’ when fans ask if we’re ever bringing BADLAND to Steam and consoles. BADLAND was designed as a console-quality tablet experience, and we’re working with our partners to take it even further, for a product that looks and feels very much at home both on consoles and Steam. As a small tight-knit studio committed to high production values, we’re certainly attempting to ‘punch above our weight’ and push what is possible in terms of independent publishing.
