Towerfall Creator Bringing The Game To PC, In Talks With Sony, Microsoft, And Nintendo
Towerfall is the first Ouya success story, but game creator Matt Thorson hopes to get it into the hands of as many people as possible, starting with a PC release.
In an interview with Polygon, Thorson talked about bringing the game to PC, and the game's success as been a pleasant surprise.
Yes, I am working on TowerFall for PC. But it's going to take a couple months. There's going to be a ton of new content!— Matt Thorson (@MattThorson) July 18, 2013
Thorson also has big plans to expand the game with new levels, archers, and single-player content in the future.
Currently the Ouya has exclusivity claims on Towerfall until December. The first step is to bring the game to PC, but Thorson told Polygon that he wants as many people as possible to play the game, and that the big three have reached out to him. Thorson said, "At E3, Nintendo talked to me. Sony came to my house. Microsoft has been emailing me. There's a lot of demand for the game."
Thorson also spoke of bringing the game to EVO last weekend with the hopes of getting feedback from hardcore fighting game fans, but he said for the most part they weren't too harsh, and they had a lot of fun with the game.

It's awesome to see a small game like Towerfall getting so much interest. The Ouya has been mostly a disappointment out of the gate, but Towerfall is doing well to keep the Android-based home console on everyone's radar. We're excited to see what becomes of Towerfall in the future.
