Happy Heistuesday, friends!
Last week we revealed that SteamWorld Heist is going to playable on two continents starting next month. We begin in the U.S. by visiting GDC and PAX East. Shortly after we’ll debut the game in Europe by attending EGX Rezzed in London. There we will show off the game for the first time in public. Expect to see a lot of gameplay impressions and footage on the web!
While we’re putting the finishing touches on the playable demo and ordering posters, banners and the like, we thought we’d hook you up with some swag. Digital swag, that is. Our art director Tobias made you this awesome wallpaper for your tablet and/or smartphone. If you want a background for your desktop computer we have more SteamWorld Heist wallpapers on the official site. The pic below should work equally well on most mobile devices no matter the brand. We tested it on retina iPads and iPhones and were pleased with the results.
Here’s the wallpaper (right click and select download):
If you’re attending any of the expos you’ll find us by looking for the very same illustration as in the wallpaper. By then it will printed on huge banners. And by “huge” I really mean HUGE. Check out the pic below for the smallest one. We’ll be attending the expos together with Zoink Games and their häck-n-släsh bråwler Zombie Vikings.
Even if you can’t attend the events we’ll make sure you get the latest articles and footage directly from us. The best way is to follow us on Twitter or to like the SteamWorld Games page on Facebook. If you want to you can also check out our company Facebook page for exclusive photos from the events.
Speculate freely: What kind of gameplay do you think we’ll show you next month?
