Howdy, partners! How are you?
We’re right in the middle of developing SteamWorld Heist and everything’s progressing smoothly. It’s going be a lot of fun letting you get your hands on the game later this fall!
Last week’s SteamWorld Ambassador Challenge turned out to be a really fun experience, and your suggestions made made us laugh and think big when it comes to the lore of SteamWorld. I can guarantee you that the scope of Heist is much grander than compared to SteamWorld Dig – not just the lore and story, more gameplay content as well.
The Ancient Relic Winners
We chose three of your relic suggestions. All winning entries will be interpreted by our artists/writers and appear in the final version of SteamWorld Heist. Here they are:
- “Ström in a Can” (a can of fermented herring or “surströmming”, a disgusting Swedish delicacy) by
- “The Ancient Steam” (electric iron) gerb1977
- “The Last Hamburger” (non-decomposing burger) by
Congrats! You’ll soon get an invitation to our secret Facebook group. 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.
As always we feel a little guilty when we only choose a handful of SteamWorld Ambassadors. But keep at it and you too might become an ambassador one day!
SteamWorld YouTube Series
If you’re following our updates I’m sure you know we’re regularly uploading videos to the Image & Form YouTube channel. We think it’s time to up our game and create even better video content for you. We’ve geared up with cameras, microphones, tripods and other video equipment to create a video series that is easy on the eyes, as well as entertaining and interesting.
The concept is similar to Nintendo Minute and PlayStation Access, but with our own twist of course. The series will have a unique name and be a container for all sorts of content: Q & As, interviews with staff, let’s plays, discussions, contests, announcements, fun randomness and other SteamWorld related content with the community in focus.
Here are a couple of teaser images:
So make sure you subscribe to our channel to never miss episodes when they premiere really soon 🙂
