SteamWorld Dig was incredible. It was extremely cheap, and it was a hell of an indie game, presenting a unique brand of sidescrolling action. Today, the developers at Image & Form have announced the follow up to that game. It’s called SteamWorld Heist, and the developers seem to be pretty excited about it.
“It’ll be full of surprises and probably the best game ever,” says Brjann Sigurgeirsson, exhibiting an incredible amount of modesty.
“Heist isn’t a sequel to SteamWorld Dig,” says CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson. “It’s set in the same world and the cowbots are still the heroes. But a lot has happened to SteamWorld since then, and we want to make a game that is radically different. Partly because we really wanted to make a turn-based strategy game, but also because it felt like a clever move. The obvious follow-up would’ve been Dig 2; we wanted to surprise instead.”
SteamWorld Heist is due to release in Spring 2015; no platforms or pricing details have been announced.
