#Heistuesday 14: Gabriel “Sea Brass” Stubb

In SteamWorld Heist you recruit a team of rag-tag robots and fight explosive battles while boarding enemy space ships. A few months ago we introduced Captain Piper Faraday, the protagonist of the game. Though strong in mind and body, Piper is nothing without her hearty crew. Today we’ll introduce Sea Brass, the first of the many […]

#Heistuesday 13: SteamWorld Holiday Competition!

Howdy partners! This week we’re all out of the office for a well-deserved year-end break. But we’re still working on SteamWorld Heist: before leaving, we updated our 3DS test units with the latest SteamWorld Heist build. Six of us will be home enjoying the game over the holidays. The game is actually working most of the time, and […]

#Heistuesday 11: Your Best Questions Answered

Hi friends! Remember the t-shirt contest a few weeks ago? The three winners each gave us one SteamWorld Heist related question that will be added to the official SteamWorld Heist FAQ. But what are questions without answers? Nothing. So we sent the entries to our in-house SteamWorld lore master (CEO Brjann), who gave them the answers they deserve. And here they are! […]

Yes, we’re the most egocentric and narcissistic boasters in the industry (we actually installed a widened front door to be able to get our inflated egos inside the office). And a few […]

#Heistuesday 4: Steambabies? This Is How Steambots Are Made

Steambots (just like any other species) have to reproduce in order to survive. Because steambots age, you see. And not always gracefully. Take Cranky from SteamWorld Dig, for instance. Just by looking at him you see that he’s way past his prime. Just like with human doctors, there are limits to what repairbots can achieve. That’s why steambot-kind invented […]

#Heistuesday 2: The Level Design of SteamWorld Heist

Welcome to #Heistuesday! Every Tuesday until release, we’ll introduce something new from our coming game SteamWorld Heist. This week I’d like share with you the first juicy bits on our level design. While we’re preparing to show you the first gameplay, I (Julius) sat down with our five-star level designer Markus Månson and had a chat about the challenges when working on […]
