This time Kao will take on a completely new journey. New story, challenges, enemies, visuals, and a whole lot more!

Since June 1st, 2020, all the Kao fans are wondering what is going on. There were hundreds of speculations: Is there a Kao sequel in production? Or maybe a trilogy remaster?

Yes! We are working on the entirely new Kao the Kangaroo game. 

We will keep you posted and soon you will be able to see a first glance of the game - so stay tuned!

For everyone who would like to become familiar with our favorite marsupial, from today (9th of June) until Sunday (14th of June) you can download our classic game - Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 on Steam for FREE!

The first game - Kao the Kangaroo celebrates its 20th anniversary! This colorful 3D platformer gave a lot of joyful childhood memories to many people around the world. The sequel Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 was in Top 10 for 12 months in Polish retail stores. The game series sold in over 700 000 retail units worldwide up to date.

The whole series includes:

In Early 2019 the community started an initiative marked by the hashtag #BringKaoBack to support and bring their favorite character back to a modern platform. 

As an answer to these requests, we have published a remastered Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 on Steam. On June 1st, 2019 - as a gift for our community we have launched the game on Steam for free. Within 24 hours Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 has been downloaded by over 750 000 players! 

#Kao4Australia - January 2020 - as soon as we found out about the horrific bushfires in Australia we have decided to support the worldwide relief - after all we are talking about Kao’s motherland. We started the 10 days fundraiser - all the Kao The Kangaroo: Round 2 Steam profits were donated to the WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.)
