Puke-Happy Ooga Arrives Today on PC

Steam, Direct2Drive release Ancients of Ooga with free DLC

Like most things swallowed by its strange cast of characters, Ancients of Ooga is about to come up for a second appearance - this time on PC. But when the game finally does spew forth today it will include new downloadable content, "The Forgotten Chapters," for free!

"The PC version comes with the new 'The Forgotten Chapters' DLC we released earlier this week on Xbox Live Arcade - but for free," said John Nielson, founder of Bacon Wrapped Games. "It adds seven all-new levels intermixed straight into the game's main adventure."

In Ancients of Ooga's 50-plus levels players fight to liberate their enslaved Oogani tribesmen and resurrect their murdered chiefs. Each level presents new challenges and puzzles that must be solved in order to unlock and wield the lost powers of the seven Oogani tribes. And, of course, players draw heavily on the Ooganis' ability to eat and puke just about anything they can get their hands on.

In addition to the added DLC, the PC version of Ancients of Ooga has been updated to include new features like extra achievements, while the Steam version also adds Steam Stats.

"Ooga's achievement count more than doubled for PC," Nielson said. "It now stands at 25 - the original 12 from the Xbox and another 13, new for PC."

Ancients of Ooga was developed jointly by indie developers Bacon Wrapped Games and NinjaBee,. The studios consider the game to be the spiritual successor to their previous hit, Cloning Clyde, another platformer that recently released on Steam and Direct2Drive. Both games were previously exclusive to Xbox Live Arcade.

The PC incarnation of this bizarre, regurgitation-happy platformer lands on Steam and Direct2Drive for 9.99 USD (£7.99 / €9.99) and 9.95 USD (£7.95 / €9.95) respectively.

Ancients of Ooga Gets DLC

The Forgotten Chapters arrives on XBLA for 160 MS Points

Today NinjaBee and Bacon Wrapped Games released "The Forgotten Chapters," a new add-on for their bizarre action platformer, Ancients of Ooga on Xbox Live Arcade.

"The Forgotten Chapters" adds seven all-new levels to the game's main campaign and includes new puzzles to solve, more enemies to fight and extra characters to rescue and recruit. The downloadable content pack continues the story of the Oogani revolt, returning players to each land of the Oogani world where they must use all seven Oogani tribes' unique powers to free their trapped tribesman to join the insurrection.

Ancients of Ooga stars a cast of strange, gremlin/monkey-like characters with a propensity to eat, and puke, just about anything they can get their hands on. Join the revolt with the bizarre Ooganis as they use their ancient powers to free their lands and the seven enslaved tribes with the use of a variety of ancient, mystic powers.

"The Forgotten Chapters" is available for download in the Xbox Live Marketplace for 160 Microsoft Points.
