SteamWorld Heist, the next entry in the SteamWorld franchise, has been announced by Swedish developer Image & Form. The upcoming title is coming in spring 2015 to several platforms that haven’t been announced yet. The release date and price haven’t been announced either.
What we do know about the game is that it won’t be an action platformer. This time around you’ll explore space, recruit robots, collect remains from a destroyed planet and command a crew in a turn-based fashion. The strategy game takes place after SteamWorld Dig and since your planet has been destroyed by a catastrophic series of events, the only place left to go was space.
I reviewed the PC version of SteamWorld Dig and called the game an “indie platformer so engrossing that once you start digging, you won’t be able to stop.” For more information about the game, check out my review here.
