We know how passionate Image & Form are when it comes to the SteamWorld series, with the developer releasing its latest entry at the end of last month. So, what's next? Nobody is really sure, but what we do know is the Swedish-based company has been preparing "something special" for next week. The developer made this comment over on...
Or, three. Sort of
If you've been to this site before, you'll probably know or at least have a rough inkling that we cover a lot of games here; it's slightly our whole entire thing. But whilst we look at so many games it can often be all to easy to forget that behind each game we look at there's a team of revoltingly talented individuals who have...
"Everyone only lives once"
The latest entry in the popular SteamWorld saga, SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech is coming to Switch later this year and promises to deliver a fun take on the otherwise well-worn RPG genre. We were lucky enough to get some quality time with Image & Form's Brjánn Sigurgeirsson and chat about the game, its origins...
T-shirts and the coolest pin badge ever
Image & Form's SteamWorld franchise seems to be popping up everywhere at the moment; SteamWorld Dig 2 arrived last September on Switch (and was then followed by a 3DS release just yesterday), and the original SteamWorld Dig also saw a re-release on Switch at the start of February. Now things ha
A late Christmas present
With SteamWorld Dig 2 being a tremendous success on the Nintendo Switch, we at Nintendo Life Towers thought it would be only a matter of time before more titles from the excellent Image & Form would make their way to the hybrid system. And now we're very happy to confirm that SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition is...
Digging with Dorothy
SteamWorld Dig was a bit of a success to say the least when it was first released back in 2013, and with any luck the developers will see similar success with the direct sequel, SteamWorld Dig 2 on the Switch. We caught up with Image & Form Games at EGX Rezzed to chat about the upcoming game, and community manager Julius...
Wonder how the cartridge would taste…
One of the more significant Nindie games to be announced for the Nintendo Switch was that of SteamWorld Dig 2. Promised to be the "Super Metroid" to the original game, Image & Form looks set to pack this one full of all the ideas that couldn't be implemented in the original release. It's expected to...
Co-presented by Allbran Sigson
Miiverse is, alas, one day going to be but a treasured memory. A quirky part of the Wii U and 3DS landscape, Nintendo is moving on and not including its bespoke social network on the Switch; that's a bit of a pity, as some entertaining posts will no doubt be lost. Image & Form has now produced a funny video...
The reveal is close
Image & Form confirmed late last year that it's releasing a new SteamWorld game in 2017, which is unsurprising in light of the franchise proving a success for the company. It's expected on Switch, of course, and it's also been known for a little while that it'll be on show this March at PAX East. Image & Form has now...
It'll be shown at PAX East
Image & Form has posted its final 'Engine Room' episode of the year, in which it looks back on 2016 (a bit) and looks ahead at what's to come. The hosting duo confirm that 2017 will see a new SteamWorld project, and it'll be shown at PAX East in Boston; the company will also be celebrating its 20th Anniversary. Is...
The heist begins
Just earlier this week, it was announced that the SteamWorld Collection would be coming to North America on 1st November. Not only would it offer up a chance to have both of the latest SteamWorld games in a physical disc, but up until now, that was also to be the first chance that North Americans would have at playing SteamWorld...
"We really wanted to prove ourselves"
This week brings two intriguing retail releases in Europe, published under Nintendo's eShop Selects label. FAST Racing NEO and SteamWorld Collection will be available on disc, and in the latter case Image & Form is also bringing the same compilation to North America (in October) with a different publisher...
The pressure's building
Image & Form has established itself as a Nindie to be reckoned with thanks to the eShop releases of SteamWorld Dig and SteamWorld Heist, both arriving on the 3DS and Wii U. It seems that those titles will be getting combined into one steamy bundle, too. A USK (German) rating from May has been spotted
Splatoon is up for three awards, Super Mario Maker is up for one
In a couple short months, it'll be about that time of year for the annual Game Developers Conference, one of the largest events in the industry. Rather than E3, which is centered around new announcements for greater audiences, GDC is primarily focused on the craft of game development...
SteamWorld Heist is only a few days away from release now, and hype for the game is at an all-time high. Offering up a distinct experience from its predecessor, SteamWorld Dig, many are curious how Image & Form's latest entry in the SteamWorld series will stack up in comparison. Based off of what's been shown up to this point, it...
Pulling a job
A few days ago, it was revealed that Steamworld Heist will be releasing on 10th December, a little less than a week from now. Those who buy it before the end of the year will receive a discounted price and 3DS buyers will have the added bonus of a home screen theme that will become unavailable once 2016 begins. In order to build hype...
No promises, though
As many of you are likely aware, SteamWorld Dig is due to receive a sequel in the near future. Taking a vastly different approach than the Metroidvania-esque gameplay of the first game, SteamWorld Heist is an interesting shooter/turn based strategy hybrid that carries a lot of promise with its spacefaring setting. It's a release...
Is also honest on the DSiWare store's layout...
SteamWorld Heist is likely to be on quite a few wishlists ahead of its planned Fall release on the 3DS eShop, with a later arrival also due on the Wii U. It's the continuation of what's rapidly become Image & Form's key IP following the multi-platform success of SteamWorld Dig. We previously...
The steam age
With SteamWorld Heist getting close to release on the 3DS - coming a little later on Wii U - its developer Image & Form is keeping itself busy in getting eShop fans talking about the game and its franchise. Earlier this week it launched a contest in search of a tagline for the game, and has now kicked off a new video series...
Image & Form has been running a series of SteamWorld Ambassador Challenges every two weeks, with lucky winners set to receive copies of SteamWorld Heist on all available platforms later this year. Contests so far have included designing hats for robots and thinking up witty one-liners, accommodating those with creative minds and...
"It needs to be something more"
SteamWorld Heist is certainly one of the most prominent Indie downloads on the way this year, with Image & Form's 2D strategy title set to come to the eShop on Wii U and 3DS, along with a host of other platforms. The studio's been keeping fans up to date with weekly updates, too, tackling questions and running...
Play SteamWorld Heist before anyone else
SteamWorld Heist is due to start arriving in Fall this year, with the 3DS and Wii U eShop stores on the list of supported platforms. A spin-off from SteamWorld Dig, its blend of a steampunk aesthetic with 2D turn-based strategy is certainly full of potential. Developer Image & Form is now launching a set...
Details of enemy types are shown off
SteamWorld Heist could be a download highlight of 2015, with the follow-up - not sequel - to SteamWorld Dig heading to Wii U and 3DS alongside a host of other platforms. 2D strategy takes the place of digging and jumping, while steampunk will be heading into outer space. The Image & Form blog is posting...
Due from Fall onwards, including Wii U and 3DS
SteamWorld Heist, the anticipated follow up to SteamWorld Dig, has evidently been progressing well in development. Image & Form took a new build of the title to various expos in March, and has today released a fresh trailer to show off the strides its made since its initial reveal in 2014. Very...
But some screenshots have been swiped for your viewing pleasure
SteamWorld Heist developer Image & Form Games have returned from their showings at PAX East and GDC and are quite pleased with their game's reception, if their latest blog update is any indication. Unfortunately, fans will need to take the good news with a dash of patience, as the...
Brjann Sigurgeirsson outlines an important 2014 for the developer
In the first of this 2014 'Year in Development' series, Image & Form CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson follows up on last year's article to highlight the key moments that influenced the studio's year. It's that magic time of year again, and what better opportunity to look back at 2014,...
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...
