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):

We look for all kinds of qualities in your artwork and will choose three winners (announced in a featured comment down below).

Contest: Happy Holidays and Thanks For 2017!

Howdy, partners!

We’d like to take this moment to thank you for a wonderful 2017 and let you know that we deeply appreciate every comment, share, and token of appreciation sent our way. We do our best to reply or react to each and every one of you. Rest assured that every message, tweet, and letter is read and loved! If you’ve sent us a question or a request without receiving a reply: Try again and we’ll do our best to get back to you as soon as possible!

From the end of December until January 10th most of us are taking a few days/weeks off. We’ll be briefly back for the launch of SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition for Nintendo Switch on December 28th. But more often than not, we’ll be at home stuffing our faces with candy and drinking way too many liters of julmust. “Julmust” is a Swedish Christmas root beer that’s really, really good!

What happens in 2018?

We recently released a new Engine Room in which we share bits and pieces of our plans for 2018. The biggest news is indisputably that we’re developing multiple games for Nintendo Switch and more. Watch the episode below and stick around until the end for a chance to win a copy of SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition!

From all of us to all of you:

Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!

What are your plans for the year-end?

 

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?

Design Hats for SteamWorld Heist! (CLOSED) + Summer Break

Update: The contest is now closed. Check the comments section for info on the winners! Thanks so much for your awesome entries 😀

Original article:

Howdy, partners!

We’re taking a short summer break until August 1. We’ll be mostly offline during this time, so don’t worry if we don’t get back to you right away. Once we’re back from the beach we’ll talk with you as usual! In the meantime we have a competition for you, in which you can create in-game content for SteamWorld Heist. The winners will get free SteamWorld games and exclusive info on future titles.

Check the video for full details (or scroll down to read what’s up):

The SteamWorld Ambassador Challenges Return

Thanks to your incredible support and outcry for more, the SteamWorld Ambassador Challenges finally make a grand return! We’d like you to design a hat that will appear in SteamWorld Heist as part of a DLC hat pack. A quick sketch on a napkin or on your phone will do just fine. Our artists will then choose their favorites and incorporate them in the game. Please name the hat and give it a short backstory!

As you know, steambots are crazy about hats. A sort of hat fetish, if you like. It’s central to their existence to wear a cool headpiece. Hats are collectibles you can equip your band of rag-tag robots with (you can even shoot off enemy hats and wear them). Players are loving this!

A simple sketch of your hat design will work just fine!

A simple sketch of your hat design will work just fine!

What you can win

The winners will become SteamWorld Ambassadors. As a SteamWorld Ambassador you’ll get free keys for 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

Upload your hats (and ask any questions) in the comments below. We need your designs by Sunday July 31 at 23:59 CEST (EU) / 5:59 PM EDT (NA). We’ll pick the winners once we’re back from our summer break and will reveal the new SteamWorld Ambassadors in early August. By submitting your creations you give us the rights to freely use them in our products, services and marketing assets.

We also reserve the right to judge whether the winning entry appears in the final game or not, and might alter the design to fit it the game’s art style. 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!

Hit us with your best (hat) shot! Good luck and happy summer 😀

 

SteamWorld Heist Hits PS4 & PS Vita On May 31 + Giveaway

Howdy, everyone!

We have big news today: SteamWorld Heist is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on May 31! After a great time and big success on Nintendo 3DS, we’re thrilled to unveil the HD version to you and the rest of the world 😀


Gameplay footage + Giveaway


Price, Cross-buy, Launch Discount and DLC

SteamWorld Heist will launch simultaneously in the Americas, Europe, and Australia. It comes with a slew of wonderful languages and will also be cross-buy. We did a PS4/Vita cross-buy when we launched SteamWorld Dig on PlayStation back in 2014, so doing it again was a no-brainer.

The full price will be $19.99 / €19.99 / £15.99 (or the equivalent), but to celebrate SteamWorld Heist’s HD debut we’re also treating PlayStation gamers to a 15% discount. If you’re in Europe or Australia, the game is available for pre-order from today and you can enjoy the discount in the two weeks until launch. Our friends in the Americas will get the discount at launch. Make sure to check the PlayStation Store for more info once the SteamWorld Heist game page is up and running in your region!

Also, The Outsider DLC will be available on both PS4 and PS Vita from day one. Exciting times!

SteamWorld-Heist-Soundtrack-Giveaway-Winners

SteamWorld Heist Soundtrack Winners

Hi everyone!

Here’s a quick update to announce the winners of last week’s soundtrack giveaway, where three digital copies of “Music from SteamWorld Heist” was up for grabs. Entering the giveaway was as simple as describing a personal dream spaceship.

The winners are:

  • The Cordyceps, because a spaceship that “includes a zero gravity zone with lots of pillows” sounds like heaven on Earth… eh, in space.
  • LordO’Sluggs, because an “extra large Millennium Falcon that has a gaming PC and a pet space whale in it” is a gamer’s dream without a doubt!
  • Tim, for delivering our daily dose of philosophy: “The best spaceship is the one we all live on”.

Congrats! Within a few hours you’ll get your copy delivered to the e-mail address you entered the giveaway with.

If you didn’t win…

… but still want to get your hands on the soundtrack, it’s available on iTunes and Bandcamp as a digital download and physically from SteamPoweredGiraffe.com. The 13 track album is yours for 10 USD or your region’s equivalent. See full details on the official website.

Thanks so much for entering, all of you! Keep an eye out for future giveaways 🙂

What would like us to give away?

SteamWorld Photo Contest – SteamWorld Ambassador Challenge #10

SteamWorld Photo Contest – Ambassador Challenge #10

Howdy, partner!

This week’s SteamWorld Ambassador Challenge is: take a photo of anything from SteamWorld… in the real world! What this means is you have to get creative. Maybe you can reenact a shootout from SteamWorld Heist by taking cover behind your sofa and pointing your finger gun at the camera? All donned in your coolest hat, of course. Or if you have a big pile of dirt somewhere… Why not climb it and strike Rusty’s victory pose from SteamWorld Dig? The world is your playground.

Here’s our take to get you started:

Here's our take on SteamWorld Heist IRL.

Shooting off imaginary hats with imaginary guns: Check!

Your entry can be silly like ours, but don’t let that limit your creation. Previous SteamWorld Ambassador Challenges have taught us we can expect anything from you, so we’ll choose a winner based on general creativity and fun factor. Go wild, but take care: we don’t want you get hurt in the making!

What you win…

If you win you’ll become a SteamWorld Ambassador and be among the first in the world to play SteamWorld Heist before release. The game will launch on Nintendo 3DS this fall with all other platforms coming shortly after. Prior to every platform release we’ll send you a download code for the full game. We’ll even add a few spares you can give to your friends. The Ambassadors also get access to exclusive information about the SteamWorld games as they progress.

Rules and how to enter…

Upload or link to your picture (and ask any questions) in the comments below. We need your entry by Sunday October 11th at 23:59 CEST (EU) / 5:59 PM EDT (NA). We’ll reveal the winner in next week’s blog update (Tuesday). By submitting your images you give us the rights to freely use them in our products, services and marketing materials. The winning entry will not appear in the video game SteamWorld Heist.

You are completely free with your entry and are allowed to do some basic image editing. But let’s keep it safe for work and enjoyable for everyone. Also, make sure you’re allowed to share what’s in your picture before posting it online (including all faces, belongings, information and locations). It’s optional to include people in the photo.

Write a Tagline for SteamWorld Heist

Write the SteamWorld Heist Tagline – Ambassador Challenge #8

Howdy, partners!

This week’s SteamWorld Ambassador Challenge is simple to explain but equally hard to master: We want you to write the tagline for SteamWorld Heist. As you may recall, SteamWorld Dig has the subtitle “A Fistful of Dirt” (a not-so-subtle nod to the similarly named Spaghetti Western film). We want something even better for SteamWorld Heist and firmly believe that you are up to the challenge.

Exactly how the winning tagline will be used is still up in the air. But try to write it so it would make sense to put it beneath the game’s logo. It has to be short, catchy, relatable and suit the game perfectly.

Heist_logo_1920x1080

What to write?

This challenge will only have one winner. It’s a first for the SteamWorld Ambassador Challenges, and I think it’ll spice things up quite a bit. If no suitable entry is submitted before the deadline (see below) we will still pick a winner to use as inspiration when writing game descriptions for our websites and online outlets.

What you win…

If you win you’ll become a SteamWorld Ambassador and be among the first in the world to play SteamWorld Heist before release. The game will launch on one or two platforms at a time starting this fall, and prior to every platform release we’ll send you a download code for the full game. We’ll even add a few spares you can give to your friends. The Ambassadors also get access to exclusive information about the SteamWorld games as they progress.

How to enter…

Write your tagline(s)/subtitl(e) (and ask any questions) in the comments below. We need your idea by Sunday September 13th at 23:59 CEST (EU) / 5:59 PM EDT (NA). We’ll reveal the winner in next week’s blog update (Tuesday). By submitting your ideas you give us the rights to freely use them in our products, services and marketing materials. We reserve the right to decide if the winning entry appears in SteamWorld Heist or not.

You are completely free with your tagline, but let’s keep it safe for work and enjoyable for everyone. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
