First look at SteamWorld Heist on 3DS + One-Liner Winners

Here's SteamWorld Heist on Nintendo 3DS

Howdy, partners!

As you know by this point, SteamWorld Heist is coming to all current-gen platforms and the release is aimed at fall 2015 – no fixed dates yet.

Many of our Nintendo 3DS-wielding fans have been anxious to see stuff for their favorite platform. Are they perhaps worried we’re going to give them the cold shoulder? No need: with SteamWorld Dig being such a hit for the 3DS, a version of SteamWorld Heist for the platform has been in the works from the very start. And now we decided it’s time to show some of it.

Down below you’ll find the first five Nintendo 3DS screenshots – both upper and lower screen – from our upcoming turn-based strategy combat game. We’re making sure to make SteamWorld Heist an awesome game, although we’re still a bit from completion, our CEO Brjánn is starting to lose sleep… not from staying up all night developing or worrying how the game will perform, but from the simply joy of playing. And feel free to replace “joy” with “addiction”. I can’t tell anymore 😉

One-liner winners

In last week’s SteamWorld Ambassador Challenge we asked you to come up with epic one-liners for the evil Scrappers in SteamWorld Heist. We got hundreds of creative entries in all three categories (anger, glee and shock) and had a hard time choosing one winner in each category. We’ll definitely use all of them as inspiration when writing dialogue and other text. The winners are…

  • Anger: “Cogwash!” by Josiah Jones
  • Glee: “Nailed it!” by U gonna get shrekt
  • Shock: “Mother of cog!” by Soupfist

Big congratulations! We’ll have a surprise ready for you and the other ambassadors pretty soon. So stay tuned and check your inbox for e-mail! As SteamWorld Ambassadors you’ll be among the first in the world to play SteamWorld Heist on all platforms starting this fall. You’ll also get exclusive information on the SteamWorld games as they progress.
