Thunderful Group's latest interim report is out now (which you can read here), and while it reveals the company had a bit of a weak first few months of 2022, things are looking up for it. Most notably, the future of one of its biggest IPs — the SteamWorld series — is looking very bright.
Last year, we found out about a brand new third-person co-op sequel to SteamWorld Dig — SteamWorld Headhunter — at the Thunderful Games showcase. We've got to wait until 2023 to get our hands on that, which is a little bit of a wait, but we'll be rewarded for our patience with three other SteamWorld games, all releasing in 2023 or 2024.
These three games don't currently have names or platforms confirmed yet, but they do have some very fun project names; "Strawberry", a puzzle game; "Coffee", a citybuilder; and "Caramel", a turn-based tactical shooter strategy game. They all sound delicious — and no, we're not just talking about the names, here.
The SteamWorld series has always dabbled in a number of different genres, from Metroidvania to deck-builder, and these upcoming entries look to branch the franchise out even more. We have a while to wait until we find out what these will bring, but we're never going to say no to more SteamWorld. The last entry in the series — SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech — came out in 2019, and we gave it a solid 8/10 in our review.
