How To Play SteamWorld Heist Before Everyone Else

Howdy, partners!

We have a special announcement regarding SteamWorld Heist. Please take a look at the video below. If you’ve already seen it, scroll down for the first challenge…

Video summary

Every other Tuesday we’ll post a challenge on our blog. The winner of every individual challenge will be able to join the club of official SteamWorld Ambassadors.

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 (3DS, Steam, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox One, Wii U and mobile) we’ll send you a free download code. We’ll even add a few spares you can give to your friends. You’ll also get access to exclusive information about the SteamWorld series of games as we make them.

The challenges will vary in difficulty from week to week but the rewards will be the same. So even if you don’t win one week, you’ll get a new chance only two weeks later. In the weeks between the challenges you’ll find blog posts with exciting new info, pictures and videos about SteamWorld Heist directly from our dev team.

This week’s challenge

Excited? Let’s get to the good stuff! We need you to help us come up with a kick-ass steampunk name for a weapon that will appear in the game. We think something short, catchy and “steampunk-y” will do just the trick. Offensive suggestions will be flushed down a digital drain, somewhere.

Name the weapon to become an official SteamWorld Ambassador

Leave your entry (along with any questions you might have) in the comments below. We need your suggestion by Friday April 24 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 if the winning entry appears in the final game or not.

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