Image & Form’s SteamWorld games have become a highlight of the indie gaming world over the last few years. SteamWorld Dig provides a nice spin on the “metroidvania” formula with the addition of mining and resource management, and SteamWorld Heist is even better, delivering a deep, side-scrolling strategy game.
Both were fan-favorite hits upon their respective releases, and now they will be bundled together in a special physical package for the PlayStation 4 and Wii U from Rising Star Games. See the full details on the package below.
