Two Tribes were one of the first indie developers on board with the Wii U, and they are most certainly the friendliest. Speaking on the Two Tribes blog last night, Two Tribes founder Martjin Reuvers revealed that the level editor for Toki Tori 2+ will unfortunately not be coming to the Wii U. But they have a surprise.
To make up for this, they are giving away the Steam version of Toki Tori 2+ for free. Now, there is a catch in that you do have to own the Wii U verison of the game. This is the first example of cross-buy on a Nintendo platform, and it’s simple to claim your free copy. All you have to do is post in the official Miiverse thread with your Steam name, and then email the developers with a link to the post. Miiverse will let everyone know if you own the game, so the fine folks at Two Tribes will take care of the rest. Here’s the official announcement from the blog:
Steam To The Rescue!
Since the Steam version has a level editor, we thought why not give that version away for free if you already own the Wii U version? So we’re taking a bold step here: if you really want to play around with the editor and share the levels with friends and family, we can provide you with a free Steam key*! Head over to these Miiverse posts (make sure you go to the correct region!)
and post a simple reply with NO personal information**. With this reply we can check if you own Toki Tori 2+ for Wii U. Since you cannot post e-mail addresses on Miiverse, make sure you follow up your reply by sending us an e-mail at email@example.com, with the following details:
Subject: “Wii U Steam Key”
Mail: a link to your Steam profile, a link to your Miiverse profile and your Wii U region (EU/US)
If all is good, we will send a free Steam version of Toki Tori 2+ to you. Again, don’t add any personal information in your reply to our post on Miiverse!
We hope this way we can make up a little bit for not releasing the editor on the Wii U. Should you have any questions, feel free to ask away!
*) It might take a while for the Steam key to be sent to your address, since this is done manually and we’re not awake 24/7. Also, we will continue this service as long as we feel is necessary. If it is being abused somehow, we’ll probably pull it :)
**)The Miiverse administrators don’t seem to like posting Steam IDs on Miiverse. Make sure you don’t post any personal IDs in your comment, otherwise they’ll delete it! Just a simple comment about the weather or whatever, would be enough. Mail us all relevant information: Steam ID, link to Miiverse profile and region!
