It's scored a 9 on NWR, and is reviewing pretty well at other sites too. The game is very fun and very well made, I highly recommend!

Looks great! Future apocalyptic robot western!

Official quote from the game's website:

"Not another 3D effect showcase nor a cheap port; we’re making an Actual Game™! :)"

DrFink addition: Announced, I believe, through social media today (6/5/2014) is the fact that Steamworld Dig is coming to Wii U!!

Whoa! They teased the first part of that comic.. now it's WiiU? Hell yeah. I might have to double dip for this. I'd love some bonuses though.

Yup, SteamWorld Dig is coming to Wii U! Hope this isn't a "too little, too late" situation, but hey. At least Wii U-only owners will finally be able to enjoy this gem!

I'm not sure how that would even be a "too little, too late" situation. It's a great game, sure, but it won't move consoles. Plus the original did great on the 3DS so it's not like the devs themselves are struggling. It's nice to have on the Wii U eShop but you make it sound like it's some sort of desperate Nintendo attempt here

Nice! I didn't play it on the 3DS, so I will probably get this on Wii U.

Deserves new thread and I'm all over this for obvious reasons.

I'm looking forward to updated visuals for my HD 40 inch screen.


Nah. We just need to update this thread title.

No, I mean for the devs. This game is already out on...nearly every other platform (except for Xbox, I think?) - the Wii U version is incredibly late. When I first saw this news, I wasn't sure how many people out there would be left that would:

A.) Be interested in this game

B.) Not have already played it on some other system

But it appears some missed it entirely (whyyyy?!?) and others are willing to at least consider a double-dip, so...who knows. Maybe it'll do well. If nothing else, it's a great game to add to the Wii U library, and that's never a bad thing. You're right that it won't move consoles, but at least it will give current Wii U owners something else that's fun to play.

Yeah or that I guess. But I don't wanna post in a 3DS thread, it makes me feel icky. I might get cooties.
