Image & Form Joins Forces with Steam Powered Giraffe!

Yes, the rumors have been true: Steam Powered Giraffe is working on the soundtrack for Image & Form’s anticipated multi-platform space strategy adventure SteamWorld Heist, due in spring 2015. The quirky San Diego-based band (that just so happens to feature humans parading as antique singing automatons) will not only make all the songs and in-game music forSteamWorld Heist, but will also be featured in the game as a troupe that Captain Piper and her crew encounter in bars while recruiting fighters. Image & Form CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson is happy: “A SteamWorld game about steam-powered robots featuring real-world steam-powered robots. It’s perfect!”

Image & Form reveal their new game: ‘SteamWorld Heist’

The devs at Image & Form finally ungag their CEO to talk about SteamWorld Heist, the next game in the SteamWorld franchise. “It’ll be full of surprises and probably the best game ever,” says Brjann Sigurgeirsson with typical modesty. Release is set for spring 2015; platforms, price and release schedule are yet to be determined.

In the brief teaser video above, Image & Form reveals a glimpse of what they’ve been up to since last year – SteamWorld Heist.

SteamWorld Heist is a game about space adventures and survival. Recruit a team of ragtag robots to explore and scavenge the remains of a destroyed world. Board enemy ships and command your crew in a unique variety of turn-based combat.

Taking place some time after SteamWorld Dig, a cataclysmic event has shattered the planet and forced its population into steam-driven spaceships. It’s a robot-eat-robot world out there, and water is desperately hard to come by. Heisting other ships and bases – bad guys fortunately, the lot of them – is their only way to remain in operation.

Brjann_SteamWorldHeist isn’t a sequel to SteamWorld Dig,” says CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson. “It’s set in the same world and the cowbots are still the heroes. But a lot has happened to SteamWorld since then, and we want to make a game that is radically different. Partly because we really wanted to make a turn-based strategy game, but also because it felt like a clever move. The obvious follow-up would’ve been Dig 2; we wanted to surprise instead.

Self-publishing rookies mature

In August 2013, Image & Form caused quite a commotion when SteamWorld Dig was released on Nintendo 3DS. The game quickly rose to #1 in the Nintendo eShops of America, Europe and Australia. After hitting also Steam, Wii U, PlayStation 4, PS Vita and the current, star-studded Humble Indie Bundle 12, SteamWorld Dig is widely considered a milestone in indie gaming.

Image & Form aims to self-publish also SteamWorld Heist – although it will be different this time. Before the release of Dig, the studio sent out one measly press release three months prior to launch. “Yes, it was quite ridiculous and we got lucky with the massive response at launch,” Brjann recalls. “This time we’ll keep our fans and media in the loop. So much is happening with this game. I have the patience of an insect, but will try to keep from pestering you every day.
