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 designed to answer fan questions about the franchise and the development team.
Episode 1 of "The Engine Room" features Brjann Sigurgeirsson and Julius Guldbog talking about the SteamWorld timeline, starting off with DSiWare title SteamWorld: Tower Defense through to SteamWorld Dig and then Heist. A little bit of extra lore is thrown in, along with the repeated assurance that more SteamWorld games are planned for the future.
Check it out below and let us know what you think.
I just want a release date already. I will set aside anything I'm playing to load this up and give it a go!
Interesting stuff! I'll have to look into getting the tower defence game at some point. I didn't know it existed but could do with picking up a dsi at some point on the cheap, all I needed was a good excuse
@Spoony_Tech You rock! The game is on schedule and we'll let you know as soon as we have a solid release date
Why does the guy on the left look like Daniel Radcliffe playing Harry Potter?
@ULTRA-64 you can always get it on 3DS!
but now that I know it exists. I got steam world dig for 3ds/u but havent used my 3DS code yet. might buy the DSiWare game on my DSi XL though maybe...
will have to get an SD card for my DSiXL... if not my regular DSi Will work.
cool to see the developer comenting here will have to get a job asap in the future to buy all their games.
Steamworld TD is one of the hardest games I've ever played. I'd love to see them go back to the TD genre now that they've honed their skills.
Been looking forward to this game for so long, will get it day one for sure. I'm also consistently impressed by how much the @imageform team seem to have improved in terms of self-promotion/PR since Dig - superb job keeping this game on everyone's minds!
@Moon @imageform how about an HD remake of the original tower defence steamworld game for Wii u then?
I'm not into handhelds but I love tower defence games and REALLY LOVED steamworld dig!! What could go wrong?
@ULTRA-64 Good idea Although, I think making an entirely new TD game would be better for them. I hope they're aware that there aren't many (any) good TD games for 3DS - so there's a gap in the market there!
These guys are great... so into it.
@Calllack Separated at birth, most likely
@Moon @Ultra-64 Cool idea! We'll see what the future holds
@imageform thanks for the reply and considering the idea! Does this mean that if it happens myself and @Moon don't have to design a hat or slogan for early access
@ULTRA-64 Haha! That's perhaps not what it means... but we'll love you forever for engaging, of course.
Shockingly late to playing the series but I’ve just done Dig, followed hot on the heels by Dig 2. Now I’ve started Heist and loving it. Always great to see when a series innovates and develops. Quest is already downloaded and waiting for me after this.
Def loving what @imageform do — and a huge bonus of being late to the party is that I can binge on these games!
