After a bout of internet sleuthing by NeoGAF user Stumpokapow revealed a potential list of future titles in the Steam databases, Dyad creator Shawn McGrath officially confirmed its upcoming release to PC, Mac and Linux.
“They found out it was coming out and I was like ‘well, I can’t lie anymore,’ so yeah – it’s coming out in March,” McGrath said in a self-effacing announcement trailer on YouTube.
Though he found it funny that someone actually managed to figure out that his game was coming to Steam in the first place, McGrath said that he originally wanted to create a more interesting reveal trailer, lamenting that he “[doesn't] get to decide when to announce my game, apparently.”
Set to release next month, Dyad was originally released on July 17 as a PlayStation Network exclusive. According to McGrath, there will be “nothing new” to the Steam version, so those that already purchased the game don’t have to do so again.
It’s unclear at this time whether or not the Mac and Linux versions of the game will release simultaneously with the PC version. A Vita version is also in the works, though the status on it is up in the air, according to McGrath.
“[The Vita version] is still something I really want to want to do. It’s maybe still going to happen,” McGrath said. “I don’t know, though.”
In the NeoGAF thread, other games like Fez, Retro/Grade, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Resident Evil: Revelations were also listed as potential Steam releases.
