Design A Hat For SteamWorld Heist – Ambassador Challenge #2

Howdy, partners!

It’s already been two weeks since the first SteamWorld Ambassador Challenge in which we asked you to name a weapon that will appear in SteamWorld Heist. We were blown away by the hundreds of creative entries and chose three winners to become the first people in the world to join the official SteamWorld Ambassador Club.

Today we have a new challenge for you. Get the details in this video or read the summary down below:

This week’s Ambassador Challenge…

Today we’d like you to draw something for us. You might not know this, but steambots are crazy about hats. A sort of hat fetish, if you like. It’s central to their existence to wear a cool headpiece. Hats are collectibles that you can equip your band of rag-tag robots with (you can actually shoot off enemy hats and wear them). I think you’re really going to like this feature in the final game!

We’d like you to design a hat that will appear in SteamWorld Heist. A quick sketch on a napkin or on your phone will do just fine. Our artists will choose their favorite and incorporate it in the game. Feel free to name the hat and give it a short backstory!

A simple sketch of your hat design will work just fine! Name it of you want to.

What you can win…

The winner will become a SteamWorld Ambassador. As a SteamWorld Ambassador you’ll be among the first in the world to play SteamWorld Heist before release. The game will launch on one or two platforms at a time starting this fall, and prior to every platform release we’ll send you a download code free of charge. We’ll even add a few spares you can give to your friends. You and the other ambassadors also get access to exclusive information about the SteamWorld games as they progress.

If you aim carefully (or just miss) you might shoot off your enemy's hat.

How to enter…

Upload your design (and ask any questions) in the comments below. We need your design by Friday May 8th at 23:59 CEST (EU) / 5:59 PM EDT (NA). We’ll pick a winner over the weekend and reveal the first SteamWorld Ambassador in next week’s Tuesday update. We reserve the right to judge whether the winning entry appears in the final game or not, and might alter the design to fit it into the art style.

Got what it takes? Hit us with your best shot!
