#Heistuesday 8: Thinking Inside The Box

Hi all,

We’re proud to reveal that a childhood dream or ours – if there are such things as collective dreams – is about to come true: our first boxed game. And we’re not talking a modern plastic excuse to contain a DVD, but an old-school, ultra-cool cardboard box full of goodies. A true Collector’s Edition of SteamWorld Dig. Dig it!

It’s the fabulous folks over at IndieBox, headed by the jovial James Morgan, who back in May offered to box SteamWorld Dig for us. For those of you unfamiliar with IndieBox, their idea is to take exceptional indie games and create something really special and exclusive – every month! Past highlights include Brütal Legend, Luftrausers, MouseCraft, Forced, Escape Goat and Teslagrad.

Sign up for their subscription service before November 21, use the code “SecretDig” and get 15% off on this wonderful edition of SteamWorld Dig!

These are the contents of the SteamWorld Dig Collector’s Edition:

  • Custom Box
  • Soundtrack CD featuring the world première of a new, previously unreleased track from SteamWorld Heist!
  • USB Drive with a Custom USB Sticker, containing DRM-free PC/Mac/Linux versions of SteamWorld Dig
  • Game Manual
  • Newsletter
  • Exclusive Collectibles / Custom Goodies:
    • SteamWorld Dig Tourism Tin
    • SteamWorld Dig Playing Cards designed by our very own art director Tobias Nilsson!
But wait – what has this got to do with SteamWorld Heist? How does the Collector’s Edition of SteamWorld Dig qualify for a #Heistuesday post? Well, incidentally (or accidentally?) James came up with an idea that took Heist in a new direction. We’ll announce this as next week’s #Heistuesday.
Question: What do you think it could possibly be?
Stay tuned!
  • free demo?

    • Ooh, spicy! I certainly wouldn’t mind that. But it would be an incredibly buggy version, I’m afraid. We’re still early in production. But it’s something really cool, I think, we’ll share it with you next week 😀

  • Hi all! We’re in the comments, so feel free to ask any questions you have! This has been an awesome opportunity to work with the Image & Form team, and we know you guys will really dig all the stuff that’s in the box.

    • Great to have you on-board! We appreciate your enormous efforts so much. You rock. I’ll be directing questions here if we can’t answer them!

      • No worries! We always try to jump in the comments whenever we see them. Just a bit extra of the personal touch. 🙂

        • We share that view, alright! So nice to have you onboard for this, I can’t stress that enough. On behalf of all of us, thank you!

    Why did you decide to make a box version of steamworld dig? Also the change is going to be that you can customize your starship or lead your own faction I think.

    • IndieBox approached us with the idea and we happily agreed to do it! 😀 Cool ideas!

    • As I understand it you can choose a 1 month subscription and cancel it anytime. If you don’t cancel it the subscription is renewed for another month. It should be worldwide shipping to your front door. There is an added amount of dollars for shipping outside of the US. The FAQ says it’s 13 extra USD per month. PayPal is something they’re working on 🙂

    My guess is an online singleplayer feature, in which you can interact with ships/teams created by other players.
