More people can enjoy it with Linux & Japanese language.

Seoul, South Korea, Nov. 24th. 2014 - Finally '6180 the moon' supports Linux & Japanese language for Steam.

'6180 the moon' is very unique platformer.  The top and bottom of the screen are connected so that you can jump over the screen and come out of the bottom, and vice versa. Plus it has astonishing ambient style soundtrack, which every gamer will adore. That's why it's picked by Experimental Gameplay Workshop at GDC 2013.

Originally, '6180 the moon' (PC) released at 9th. Mar. 2013 via Indie Royale Debut Bundle. At then, [6180 the moon] is made by Game Maker. Turtle Cream decided to remake it by Unity, while they tried to port to several different platform as Nintendo Wii U & iOS. Steam release is newly remade version by Unity, basically same but better.

* About Game

'6180 the moon' is a platformer game with a unique mechanic. It offers a fresh, unseen game play style by connecting the top and bottom of the screen. This allows in a mechanic with delightfully long jumps and no fear of "slipping" to death. In addition to the unique gameplay, '6180 the moon' delivers a unique storyline. The Sun has gone. The Moon sets off on a journey to find the Sun. Along the journey will be hazardous courses and deep realizations.  

'6180 the moon' is 2nd. commercial game by Turtle Cream. Their 1st. commercial game was Sweetest Platformer, 'Sugar Cube: Bittersweet Factory' at Steam.

* Quote by Critic & Key person (PC)

This one surprised me honestly since it's not a genre I particularly enjoy, but the unique screen-wrap mechanic and excellent music are enchanting. - Total Biscuit
