XP version of Geometry Wars to appear on Steam

Valve's digital distribution service continues to (ahem) gather Steam - it's latest signing is Liverpool, UK-based Bizarre Creations, which will use the service to distribute the Windows XP version of the Develop Award-winning Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved.

At first, the game will cost just $2.50, rising to $3.95 on June 22nd. The game is dubbed as a near-identical remake of the original Xbox Live Arcade game.

"With over 13 million active accounts, Steam is the ideal platform for launching Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved for Windows XP," said Martyn Chudley, Creative Director at Bizarre Creations. "We hope to continue the success of Geometry Wars by introducing its award-winning gameplay to one of gaming's largest communities."
 
"Geometry Wars has opened a new category in gaming with its blend of classic and innovative gameplay," said Jason Holtman, director of business development at Valve. "The addition of this title to Steam's growing catalog of casual and arcade-style games is a milestone in our efforts to expand the content and services offered to gamers around the world."
