Steam gets Ben There, Dan That! Special Edition

London, September 2011

Steam has updated“Ben There, Dan That!” to the recently-released Special Edition version, brimming with extras and special features.

Steam users who previously purchased the“Ben There, Dan That!&Time Gentlemen, Please! Double Pack” should see a huge, free update to the game. New users will get access to the enhanced special edition free of charge.

Award-winning indie studio Size Five Games, the minds behind controversial Sex Ed Shoot-‘em-Up“Privates” and the underground hit“Dan and Ben” point-and-click adventures recently released a special re-release of the game that started it all,“Ben There, Dan That!”

“We’ve George Lucased it right up” Dan Marshall proudly exclaimed.“I was never happy with the final version of Ben There, Dan That!, so it’s been an absolute pleasure to tinker with it and get it ship-shape.”

As well as a visual coat of gloss, the Special Edition has a full soundtrack for the first time, and a host of additional little bits and bobs.

“There’s even Special Features, in the form of a gloriously tactile 16-page‘Making of’ booklet called Lowering the Tone, and a never-before-told storybook reading of the events that led to Dan being found dead in the middle of the Peruvian jungle.”

“Fans will be pleased to hear I managed to resist making any of the characters suddenly shout NOOOOOOOOO.”

“Ben There, Dan That!” and its sequel“Time Gentlemen, Please!” launched in 2008 and 2009 to rave reviews and critical acclaim.

Ben There, Dan That! Special Edition is available RIGHT NOW under a“pay what you want” scheme for Windows PCs. Steam users who already purchased the game should see a free update soon.
