SteamWorld Quest - Our Lovely Heroes

Win SteamWorld Quest for PC – Out May 31!

Howdy, everyone!

It’s with great pleasure we’re announcing that SteamWorld Quest comes to Steam on May 31. You know what? That’s just a few weeks away! Since the launch last month, Quest has been a Switch exclusive, but soon anyone with a PC can enjoy it! You read that right: ANYONE WITH A PC CAN PLAY. We’re preparing day one versions for Windows, macOS, and Linux (thought we’d forget about the last two?).

Head over to Steam to wishlist the game today!

First of all: Thanks for the love!

SWQ is blessed with fabulous feedback from players and press alike, with the Switch version boasting an impressive 80/100 on Metacritic. Your love has led to impressive sales – Quest is currently the second best-selling SteamWorld game at release! SteamWorld Dig 2 (our fastest selling game to date) performed ridiculously well for us back in 2017. We’re thrilled and grateful for your support and hope that many more will enjoy the game once it’s out on PC!

If you’re new to SteamWorld Quest, there’s more to learn on its official website. Feel free to watch the trailer below, as well.

What about GOG and Humble?

No plans to share at the moment, but rest assured that we’re well aware of the benefits of DRM-free gaming. We’re PC gamers too, you know!

Will the game have PC exclusive features?

The PC version comes with achievements and Steam exclusive features like trading cards. But other than that, it’ll be identical to the Switch version. We’ll also have the game’s soundtrack ready for sale at launch.

How can I win SteamWorld Quest for PC?

Thanks for asking. It’s easy! Since the Switch release, we’ve seen a ton of talented artists drawing the cast of SteamWorld Quest in all sorts of imaginative styles and scenarios. Here are a few notable examples (Copernica is very popular):

How To Play SteamWorld Dig 2 Before Anyone Else

Howdy, partners!

We’re back and well-rested after a few hectic weeks of showing SteamWorld Dig 2 to happy gamers at PAX East, EGX Rezzed and GDC. What we’ve unveiled so far is only a teeny-tiny portion of the game. It’s only the game’s tutorial, actually! SteamWorld Dig 2 has a lot going for it and we can’t wait to show you more in the coming months. In the meantime we’re in need of your creative skills!

The SteamWorld Ambassador Challenges are back!

We need you to help us come up with a great name for a steambot that will appear in SteamWorld Dig 2. The robot in question is the charming robot below. She’s a small town bot feeling a bit lost after arriving to the big city of El Machino. Even though the city is rather modest in size, it’s a huge place compared to anything she’s ever seen before. She’s determined to learn more about this place and find a way to deal with her new surroundings.

Name this lovely robot!

What you can win

The winner will become a SteamWorld Ambassador. As a SteamWorld Ambassador you’ll get free copies of every version of every SteamWorld game. Ever. We’ll even add a few spares you can give to your friends. You and the other Ambassadors also get access to exclusive information about the SteamWorld games as they progress. This is done in our private Facebook group.

Rules and how to enter

Submit your entry (and ask any questions) in the comments below. We need your idea by Sunday April 16 at 11:59 PM PDT. We’ll pick a winner next week. By submitting your idea you give us the rights to freely use it in our products, services and marketing materials. We also reserve the right to judge whether the winning entry appears in the final game or not, and might alter the name to fit the style of the game. If no suitable entry is submitted before the deadline we’ll still choose a winner that gets all rewards mentioned above.

Create your entry freely, but let’s keep it safe for work and enjoyable for anyone! Offensive suggestions will be flushed down a digital drain, somewhere.

SteamWorld Heist Out Now on Wii U in EU + Contest

Howdy, everyone!

Today is a happy, happy day as SteamWorld Heist finally hits Wii U in Europe. And America is next in line with the game releasing there on Wii U in early October.

Here’s the Wii U launch trailer:

Though its full price is €19.99 / £14.99, we have a couple of launch promotions between 30th September and 13th October:

  • 25% off at launch = €14.99 / £10.99.
  • If you already own SteamWorld Heist or SteamWorld Dig for 3DS or Wii U, you actually get 33% off at launch = €13.39 / £9.99

I’m sure this makes the Wii U version a little more tempting for many of you! These deals only apply to the Nintendo eShop version, naturally, not on SteamWorld Collection (Dig and Heist + The Outsider DLC on the same disc) in stores. Alongside the eShop version of Heist is three DLC packs, including The Outsider expansion.

To boil down every Wii U launch detail we visited a giant Nintendo museum to shoot a very special Engine Room episode. Check it out for all the details and an exciting contest! I hope you will find our shenanigans and musings entertaining to watch 😀

Will you buy SteamWorld Heist on disc or from Nintendo eShop?
