Want more SteamWorld games? You're in luck!

Howdy, everyone!

I'm Julius, the community manager at Image & Form Games (makers of SteamWorld Dig). Ever since we released SteamWorld Dig, many of you have been asking for more games set in SteamWorld. Today we answer your player prayers!



We just released SteamWorld Heist, the follow-up to SteamWorld Dig. It's a space adventure set in a post-apocalyptic SteamWorld. You see, a cataclysmic event of earth-shattering proportions has forced the robots out to space! It's a robot-eat-robot world out there and resources are slim. Many steambots have turned to space piracy in order to survive, and you're one of them!

As the captain you will command a steam-driven pirate crew in a series of epic tactical shootouts. Inspired by classics like XCOM and Worms, SteamWorld Heist is turn-based strategy with a twist: You manually aim the guns of your robots, allowing for insane skill shots and bullet-bouncing action!



What do players think?

If you enjoyed Dig we're sure you'll get drawn in by the atmosphere and gameplay loop offered by SteamWorld Heist. Critics love it, as the game's sitting comfortably at 86/100 on Metacritic. But let's hear it from the Steam user reviews:

"This game is perfect. Literally perfect." – Zaphnod

"Pirate robots in space who live for hats. Awesome." – FartHoofer1227

"Firefly with robots and hats. I like it." – CNN


Will you give SteamWorld Heist a try?
