Explosive reactions: What the World Thinks of SteamWorld Heist

Happy #Heistuesday!

The past two weeks have been all about showing SteamWorld Heist to the world. OK, we only showed the game at a few conventions. But a lot of people enjoyed the game and expressed their feelings about it in various ways. So we thought we’d give you a rundown of some of the impressions people have posted online.

Media impressions

“Great take on the tactical genre. Think X-Com, in 2D, with steampunk robots. I loved getting my hands on it.”
– SideQuesting

“Boom. Perfect.”
– Rock Paper Shotgun

“It looks awesome! … What I really like about SteamWorld Heist is that you have to aim your gun manually. It’s purely skill-based.”
– GameTrailers


Fan impressions

Highlight of #Rezzed for me was definitely @ImageForm’s #SteamWorldHeist!

And of course we didn’t just receive praise. Many were eager to express their feelings and we got some constructive feedback as well.


What we had to say – in front of the camera

Along with the game we also brought members from our own team. Brjann went to America for PAX East and Game Developers Conference and I (Julius) headed to London for EGX Rezzed. We did a ton of interviews at the shows with talented and awesome video creators. Check out the vids for glimpses of gameplay and lots of cool information.

How do you think we did? Did we make a good impression?
