Write Dialogue for SteamWorld Dig 2

Write Dialogue for SteamWorld Dig 2 and Win the Game

Howdy, everyone! We’re back with our second SteamWorld Ambassador Challenge for SteamWorld Dig 2. The last one was incredibly fun, so we can’t wait to see what you come up with this time! I’m sure many of you want a second shot at becoming an ambassador. Let’s get to it!

Help us write in-game dialogue

We need your help to write a piece of text for the game. Specifically we want you to write a miners’ proverb. A proverb is a simple and concrete saying that expresses
a truth based on common sense or experience. Every culture has its collection of these wise sayings that offer advice about how to live your life.

Popular English proverbs include:

  • “Two wrongs don’t make a right.”
  • “The pen is mightier than the sword.”
  • “Better late than never.”
  • “A picture is worth a thousand words.”

You get what we’re looking for, right? Make it something that would make sense to hear from an experienced miner deep underground in a cave somewhere. If you can put a robotic twist on your proverb that would be lovely (but it’s not necessary). Remember to keep it short and sweet!

Dig deep and gain riches!

The winning proverb is waiting to be discovered somewhere deep underground…

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 proverb (and ask any questions) in the comments below. We need your idea by Sunday May 28 at 11:59 PM PDT. We’ll pick a winner next week. By submitting your proverb 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 wording 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 entries will be flushed down a digital drain, somewhere.
