Although bringing back retro games seems to be all the rage right now, Kao is definitely one of the lesser-known mascots of the past.

Kao the Kangaroo is a 3D platformer developed by Tate Interactive. They brought the series back to PC with updated support for modern computers.

Kao was a cult mascot back in the day, and this rendition of the game will retain the original gameplay for integrity. The game was originally released back in 2005, and this is an exact port just with updated resolutions, achievements, and a Steam release.

This isn’t Bubsy, this is Kao.

For those who’ve never played Kao, now’s your chance to check it out for free. The original Kao came out in 2001 on Dreamcast, then a GBA port was release. Kao: Round 2 came out on PS2, GameCube, and Xbox back in 2005 with a PC release also.
