One of the most overlooked games of 2013 was Image & Form’s SteamWorld Dig. A total overhaul of the splendid 3DS original, it combined puzzling, exploration, a dash of Spelunky, and the all important mining, to create a Metroidvania that I merrily completed a second time over for its PC version. So it’s with a keen ear that I hear news of their next game: SteamWorld Heist. However, despite the shared title, this is a whole other game – a space-themed, turn-based, survival game, scavenging a dead world with a team of rusty robots. Many more details, and a brief teaser trailer below.

Dear friends, thanks for coming to see us! We've received enough praise for SteamWorld Dig to last a very, very long time - and so we are extra pleased to let everyone who prefers to play on PC/Mac/Linux give it a go.

Welcome to the mines, the residents of Tumbleton have been waiting for you... Rusty.
