Much like JLS, the cast of Team Fortress 2 will put their faces anywhere. Though unlike JLS, they’ve yet to put them on the front of a box of Johnnies.* This time they’re showing up in the long-awaited, far too long in happening PC versions of lovely Hello Games’ lovely Joe Danger games. Tiny cutesy Heavy on a motorbike! Aww! Hello claim they initially only put the TF2 characters in for fun, but I DON’T BELIEVE THEM ONE BIT.
Also there are Minecraft levels, and the option to make your own ones, just to double up on the whole PC gaming Zeitgeisty thing.
Indeed, the TF2 characters can race within the Minecraft levels. If that’s a thing which Mojang or Valve did within their own games, there would be no money left in the world, for it would all be in their bank accounts.
Hello Games note that this may be the first time that Minecraft has been on Steam, referring to Mojang’s famous reluctance to give Valve a piece of their perpetually profitable pie. Not sure if that’s true, actually – Super Meat Boy had an unlockable Steve, for instance. Anyway, musn’t rain on what seems to be a quite delightful parade. Though it does make me wonder what the next pop-culture-ruling PC game or character will be.
Take a look below, especially if you’re not a Britisher and are totally bamboozled by my opening sentence and this related image:
The sinister, solemn, staring avatars of intercourse. Anyway, Joe Danger/TF2/Minecraft:
Joe Danger and its sequel Joe Danger: The Movie launch on Steam next Monday.
* I wondered if perhaps it was spelt ‘Jonnies’, but Twitter tells me otherwise.
