SteamWorld Quest Battle

SteamWorld Quest is the roleplaying card game you’ve been waiting for! Lead a party of aspiring heroes through a beautifully hand-drawn world and intense battles using only your wits and a handful of cards. Take on whatever threat comes your way by crafting your own deck choosing from over 100 unique punch-cards!

What awaits you is a luscious treasure chest filled with gold, dragons, vivid worlds, magic, knights in shining armor as well as XP, turn-based battles and all that good RPG stuff! The game’s humorous mix of traditional fantasy and steampunk robots makes for an unforgettable experience with lots of laughs.


The SteamWorld community has been asking us to create an RPG for years. In fact, we’ve asked our followers directly on multiple occasions what game they would like us to make next and so far an RPG has been the number one request. So naturally, we took it upon ourselves to create a new kind of game to surprise and delight both fans of the genre as well as existing SteamWorld fans.

We will announce the game’s release date, price and future platforms at another time. For now, we’re focused on Nintendo Switch. We’re incredibly excited to share our latest and possibly greatest adventure yet and we can’t wait to hear your first impressions! We will reveal more details about Quest in the coming months, including its story, gameplay details, and so on. Feel free to ask us any questions in the comments below ?
