Sayonara Wild Hearts Drops onto Steam Today

Developer Simogo’s brilliant, splicing-of-many-a-genre Sayonara Wild Hearts has made a surprise drop onto Steam today. Previously the game had only been available across PS4, Switch and Apple’s [at the time] new subscription-based streaming service, Apple Arcade. But it looks like Annapurna Interactive — the game’s publisher — are in a little bit of a pre-Christmas festive mood and now the game is finally available for PC players. What’s more, there’s a 20% discount for those who purchase it up until next Thursday, December 19. You can also save a bit of money by purchasing both the game and the soundtrack.

If you haven’t already played the game, now is exactly the time to give Simogo’s latest a spin. Though it may only last the length of a double-album — of which the game, fittingly, has quite the good synthpop soundtrack — Sayonara is chock full of moments that find it whizzing from on-rails to rhythm to action to a light bit of shooting and puzzle-solving at times, in what is easily the year’s “how do I define this” game. If you haven’t yet caught sight (or sound) of the game, check out the trailer below to get a taste of Sayonara’s overall vibe.
