SteamWorld Heist: 3D Screenshots + Space Bar Winners

Hi, everyone! How are you?

The entries in last week’s SteamWorld Ambassador Challenge were truly awesome. Choosing winners proved to be quite difficult. We narrowed it down to two bar names that will appear in SteamWorld Heist. Scroll down for the results. Maybe your entry is there?

Today we also release six brand new SteamWorld Heist 3DS screenshots. The screens show parts of the game we have never shown before. We introduce a new enemy type, new environments, a cutscene sample and new gameplay elements.

If you scan the QR codes with your Nintendo 3DS (instructions) the screenshots will pop up in glorious 3D on the upper 3DS screen! If you visit this blog post from your Nintendo 3DS Browser you can click the “(3DS LINK)” in each description to view the 3D image. Many thanks to Jools Whatsham at Renegade Kid for teaching us all this.

SteamWorld Heist 3D Screenshots

Screenshot 2: Captain Piper aiming her gun at a pair of Scrappers. Very few weapons have laser sights in SteamWorld Heist. It’s incredibly rare, actually. (3DS LINK)

Space Bar Winners

In last week’s challenge we asked you to name a space bar in SteamWorld Heist. As in all previous SteamWorld Ambassador Challenges choosing only one winner was impossible. Here are the winners:

  • “The King’s Daisy” by Hobbit Peate Donohue. This will be name of the bar we described last week.
  • “Die Tankstelle” by Monsieur Matou. This name just happened to be perfect for another space bar for story reasons. You’ll have to play the game to find out why 😉

Congrats! You’ll soon get an invitation to our secret Facebook group pretty soon. As SteamWorld Ambassadors you’ll be among the first in the world to play SteamWorld Heist on all platforms starting this fall (you get to invite your friends, too). You’ll also get exclusive information on the SteamWorld games as they progress.

Which screenshot is your favorite and why?

Let us know in the comments below! We’re eager to know! 🙂
