Down with that, picked up some minerals while there
In a recent interview with PRANKSTER101 PRODUCTIONS, Image & Form's lead programmer Olle Hakansson discussed the inspiration for SteamWorld Dig, praised Nintendo's developer support, and gave a few details on a new title in the SteamWorld series.
Hakansson briefly discussed the next SteamWorld game as it's roughly a month from being formally announced; but he confirms that it is not a sequel to Image & Form's successful and well-reviewed SteamWorld Dig. Despite SteamWorld Dig being famed as a 3DS and Wii U eShop title, Hakansson had this to say about what platforms this new SteamWorld game might appear on:
We are actually here in GDC and Gamescom and [trying to] determine the details on which platforms [the game] comes first and so on. So it’s not finalized yet. Our goal is to release it on all the platforms we released SteamWorld Dig on, and a few more.
