SteamWorld Sequel Confirmed for 2017
More information coming at PAX in March.
Image & Form Games has a new SteamWorld game confirmed for this year. Dubbed “SteamWorld Project 2017″ in a recent vlog, the developer said that more information would be revealed at PAX East in March.
SteamWorld’s most recent iteration was SteamWorld Heist, a 2D side-scrolling tactical RPG with space pirate and robots. The game released on a variety of platforms like Nintendo 3DS, PC, Mac OS X, Linux, Wii U and iOS with favourable reviews from critics all around.
That being said, previous titles in the franchise employed different mechanics. SteamWorld Tower Defense in 2010 was, as the name implies, a tower defense title while SteamWorld Dig in 2014 was a 2D platformer. All games have shared the same universe thus far.
