After SteamWorld Dig’s surprising debut on the 3DS in 2013 (and its subsequent hop to every other digital platform) fans have been eager to find out what would come next. SteamWorld Heist was first announced last September and since there’s been a terribly slim amount of news to go on.
It’s not a sequel. It’s set far into SteamWorld Dig’s future. Robots have set out into space in search of precious water. Something-something turn-based. Outer space exploration and survival. With music by Steam Powered Giraffe.
Almost another year later the steam powered news cycle is finally about to kick off. Members of Image & Form Games will be demoing SteamWorld Heist for the press and public throughout March. First at the Game Developers Conference (March 2-4), then at PAX East (March 6-8), then at EGX Rezzed in London (March 12-14). Finally they’ll take the game to New Jersey for the not-game-specific Steampunk World’s Fair on May 14-15.
So, come mid-March we should finally know a lot more about what SteamWorld Heist is and hopefully when to expect it on which platforms.
