Steamworld Dig

In the months following the release of the excellent SteamWorld Dig on the 3DS eShop, our friends at Image & Form have had varying reports from fans about how quickly were able to complete the game. Some of these were so impressive that they have even caused CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson to question his own skill at playing the game.

To establish once and for all who is master digger, Image & Form have unveiled details for the SteamWorld Dig Perfect Run Contest.

The requirements for all four gold stars (the "perfect run") are as follows: 20000 gold, 150 orbs, zero deaths — in less than 2 hours and 30 minutes.

The best time wins the grand prize, which is to become the first person in the world other than Image & Form staff to play the next SteamWorld game — the winner will get their copy before anyone else (including even Nintendo Life!) — plus they will be immortalized in the credits section of that game. The winner and four runner-ups will also get snazzy t-shirts.

The contest closes on 20th November, so you had better start practising now. To enter the contest simply take a photo of the end screen and email it to [email protected].
