ZA/UM marks the first anniversary of Disco Elysium with a Steam discount and news of a playable Game Boy port.
When Disco Elysium was released on PC in October 2019 it stole attention away from many of the season’s big releases – Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds springs to mind – before going on to win a slew of awards. The reasons are obvious. The game features a memorable cast of characters, distinctive and elaborate environments, and an elegantly constructed narrative. It’s all underpinned by genre-bending combat-free mechanics and a superb score by British Sea Power.
The celebrate its first birthday, Disco Elysium is discounted by 30% on Steam until October 26, 2020. The game’s latest update also adds a new seamless language switching feature.
Speaking about the response to Disco Elysium, ZA/UM’s head of publishing, Mikk Metsniit, says:
“We’d just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported the game over the last year. We’ve had such an overwhelmingly positive response to Disco Elysium and this last year has been a radical journey for the whole team. We really appreciate everyone who has played the game and are really grateful to our amazing fan base.”
Disco Elysium is currently in development for release on PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo consoles. There’s no word on a release date, but in the meantime, developer Colin Brannan has ported the first part of the game to the Nintendo Game Boy. It’s a beautiful distillation of the game that can be played on desktop and mobile browsers, or downloaded as a ROM to play on an actual Game Boy.
