By Ishaan . August 6, 2013 . 3:00pm

Swedish developer Image & Form have released a trailer for their Nintendo 3DS platformer SteamWorld Dig, which is scheduled for release tomorrow in the U.S., Europe and Australia. You can watch the trailer below:



SteamWorld Dig takes place in a steampunk world where humanity has been all but wiped out, and the world is inhabited by mechanical lifeforms instead. You play as Rusty, a “cowbot” who happens upon a Wild West town in distress, and begins to mine deep into its foundations to discover buried treasure and a lingering evil.


SteamWorld Dig will be released via the Nintendo eShop for 3DS for 8.99 USD / 8.99 EUR / 11.99 AUD.

    Looks pretty good but 9 bucks? Little much I think. I wonder how big the game is. File size and play time wise.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Image and Form said it was gonna be pretty big from their last interview, I think.

      • Enzo

        I am kind of tempted to get it, but I am a bit cautious here. I’ll have to learn more before I commit.

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          I like how the devs think and the game looks interesting so Im more inclined to get ti.

  • KuroNathan

    reminds me a lot of motherload but with more platforming. Always nice to see cowboy games too

    • DCBlackbird

      I’d drink to that pardner

  • Okay now i know where to spend my free 30$, Only use it for dlc so far

  • Göran Isacson

    Aww yiss. Western game? I like. Ennio Moricone soundtrack? I also like. Western with robots and humanity as deformed mutants? That is EXACTLY the kinda jam I like. Gonna get me some of this, I am.
