HAT WINNERS! + Community Q&A (DLC, upgrades and more)

Howdy, partner!

We’ve got two BIG updates to share with you today. First of all we have chosen three hat winners from last week’s hat challenge! Second, we’ve prepared a meaty Q&A with your questions. We share our DLC thoughts for SteamWorld Heist, news on weapon upgrades and confirm procedurally generated levels.

Check out the Q&A:

The winning hats…

We were blown away by all the amazing hat designs submitted last week. Thanks so much! The creativity was through the roof and it was really hard nailing it down to just one winner. So instead we went with our top three hats 🙂

The winners are: 

The three hat challenge winners! What do you think?

Here are the first mockups of the #SteamWorldHeist hat winners 😀 Which one would you wear in battle?

Big congratulations! We’ll have a surprise ready for you and the other ambassadors pretty soon. So stay tuned and check your inbox for e-mail! As SteamWorld Ambassadors you’ll be among the first in the world to play SteamWorld Heist on all platforms starting this fall. You’ll also get exclusive information on the SteamWorld games as they progress.

Our artist Amanda is hard at work on incorporating the hats in the game. Some of the submitted hats were very close to what we already have designed. We were also really impressed by how many of you did a great job on matching the overall art style of SteamWorld Heist.

Over to you:


What kind of robots should wear the winning hats?


If you became a SteamWorld Ambassador, what secrets would you want us to reveal?



SteamWorld Ambassador Winner + Community Q&A Time


Howdy, partners!

With all the challenge entries from last week came many interesting SteamWorld Heist questions, so I got Brjann to join me for a short Q&A. We cover interesting topics such as platform features, multiplayer and amiibo. Check out the video below (or scroll down for the results from last week’s challenge).

Topics covered:

  1. Will the SteamWorld Ambassadors get the full game or just a demo?
  2. Does SteamWorld Heist reference SW Dig in any way? (Paul Michael Howells)
  3. Which part of Heist is the hardest to create? (Steven Oz)
  4. Will Heist have platform specific features/content? (WWBatmanD)
  5. Do you plan on adding amiibo functionality to Heist? (The Geek Guru)
  6. Will Heist have multiplayer? (Lucas)

Now, let’s announce the results from last week’s SteamWorld Ambassador Challenge!

The SteamWorld Ambassador Winner(s)

We had no idea what response was waiting us when we announced the SteamWorld Ambassador program. The entire office was blown away by the dedicated crowd and all creative entries. Counting every single entry we got over 500 individual weapon name suggestions. Many thanks to all who participated. We owe you, big time!

Naturally, selecting just one winner was impossible, so we chose three winners! One winner whose suggestion fits the gun perfectly and two whose suggestions were too good to ignore.

The first SteamWorld Ambassadors are…

  • TheGamingWolf for providing our weapon with the name “Cranky’s Delight”!
  • James Jackson for suggesting the name “The Bolt .45” which will be given to another weapon.
  • jsty3105 for the incredibly creative pun “Rust in pieces!”. We’ll not use it as a weapon name, but it will appear in SteamWorld Heist as a bark (epic one liner).

Congratulations! The winners will receive an e-mail from us shortly and get a more formal welcome to the SteamWorld Ambassador Club. If you didn’t win this week you’ll get a new chance next week in a completely different challenge. So I hope you’re getting ready!
