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):
