frima studioFrima Studio has announced that couch co-op platformer Chariot is now available on Steam, following its PlayStation 4 and Xbox One releases earlier this fall.

In Chariot, players guide the King’s funeral casket through richly colored landscapes by using physics-based mechanics, such as swinging, riding, pulling and pushing. At times, you’re collecting jewels at high speeds down steep ramps, and a moment later, you’re carefully traversing treacherous cliffs. Alone or with a friend, Chariot offers the thrill ride of an afterlife!

“Chariot has really taken off – no pun intended – on consoles, and we’re thrilled to launch on Steam,” said Frima Executive Producer Martin Brouard. “While you can play the campaign with a partner, Steam is an excellent platform to take on the journey solo.”

Chariot is available for $14.99 on Steam, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with a Wii U release date to be revealed soon. On Steam, Chariot is optimized for controller use, but keyboard controls have also been implemented. Chariot’s mesmerizing soundtrack is also available for $3.99 or bundled with the game for $17.99.

Catch Frima’s Steam launch TwitchTV livestream today, November 12, from 5-7pm EST here and visit Chariot’s official website, like on Facebook or follow on Twitter.
