SteamWorld Heist announced for spring 2015

The developers of SteamWorld Dig have announced their next title will be released in spring 2015.


Image & Form Games has announced the next title in their SteamWorld series of games, SteamWorld Heist. The game is said to be a mix of space adventures and survival where players command a team of “ragtag robots” who explore and scalage remains of a world that’s been destroyed. Players board enemy ships and command their crew using turn-based combat.

SteamWorld Heist takes place some time after the events of SteamWorld Dig where a cataclysmic event has left the planet shattered and forced its population of robots to take to space in steam-driven ships. Water is once again a precious resource in Heist and the only way to survive is by scavenging other ships and bases. SteamWorld Heist isn’t a sequel to Dig, although it’s set in the same universe where cowboys are still seen as heroes.

Along with today’s announcement, Image & Form Games has released a teaser trailer for SteamWorld Heist. Judging by the teaser, it looks like we’re going to be a lot of looting once the title is released in spring 2015.

      As long as there is more content, I'll be happy as a pig in shit for this. Loved the first one, but it was way too short.

        I loved Steamworld Dig. I just finished it over the weekend (took me ~3.5 hours to beat).

          yeah the only negative of that game was that it was too short! it was only 8 dollars when i picked it up so i wasn't too worried about it.
