SteamWorld Heist is certainly one of the highest-profile download-only releases heading to the Wii U and 3DS this year, and ahead of a Fall release window Image & Form is keeping fans informed with weekly updates and contests.

Last week the studio launched its first SteamWorld Ambassador competition to name a new weapon, with the winner receiving free copies of the various versions once they're complete.

The competitions will be bi-weekly, so this time around Image & Form CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson and Community Manager Julius Guldbog have answered fan questions in a video. They tackle queries on platform exclusive content, multiplayer, amiibo and more.

In the meantime the winner of the first SteamWorld Ambassador has been announced over on the official Image & Form blog. There'll be another comp next week for those that missed out.

In the meantime, let us know what you think of the developer's Q & A in the comments.
