The past two weeks have been all about showing SteamWorld Heist to the world. OK, we only showed the game at a few conventions. But a lot of people enjoyed the game and expressed their feelings about it in various ways. So we thought we’d give you a rundown of some of the impressions people have posted online.
“Great take on the tactical genre. Think X-Com, in 2D, with steampunk robots. I loved getting my hands on it.”
– Rock Paper Shotgun
“It looks awesome! … What I really like about SteamWorld Heist is that you have to aim your gun manually. It’s purely skill-based.”

And of course we didn’t just receive praise. Many were eager to express their feelings and we got some constructive feedback as well.

What we had to say – in front of the camera
Along with the game we also brought members from our own team. Brjann went to America for PAX East and Game Developers Conference and I (Julius) headed to London for EGX Rezzed. We did a ton of interviews at the shows with talented and awesome video creators. Check out the vids for glimpses of gameplay and lots of cool information.
