Image & Form's newest game, SteamWorld Heist is coming to the 3DS next week! As a huge fan of SteamWorld Dig, the excitement is in the air. I hope to have a review up by launch as I've been lucky enough to receive a review copy. I can't speak on the actual game until then, so I hope this thread can be used for everyone else's hopes for the title. Who is picking this up at launch?
Indeed. I thought it was unique to have actual vocals at times but then I realized who this band was and I'll be listening to them here at work today. I gage them a listen last night and I'm liking their unique style.
Okay this game is really fun! Very satisfying to pull off trick head shots as Piper using a sniper gun. Bounced off of 2 walls and like 2 barrels to one shot kill an enemy that would've been troublesome had I missed. Already have a few extra party members too and completed one of the optional challenges. Doesn't seem TOO hard yet but also started on the middle difficulty. Thankfully you can change it whenever though.
Oh and that music... Love it!
(Is anyone else having trouble with the forum? Loading very slowly for me.)
@VofEscaflowne OMG so excited. Image and Form are so amazing, they're like the best relatively unknown developer in the world. Hopefully this game will put them on the map! I mean Dig sorta put them on the map, but not a ton of people played it, hopefully this will reach a wider audience.
It really shows their determination on wanting to make this game stand out. I gotta agree though that labeling games as being "indie" should go away. It's unfortunate but there's people out there that as soon as they hear indie, they immediately discredit the game as not being worth their time. It also hurts devs I'm sure during the awards season where you have smaller games have their own category. Why can't they compete with these "AAA" titles? A fun game can be fun regardless of who makes it or what people perceive them as and they can certainly crush the teams with all the money in the world to fund their project.
@VofEscaflowne Totally agree, indie doesn't really mean anything anyway, and no one really cares if a game is made by one person or a team of thousands, they just want to have fun!
We know we've made one of the best games this year
EDIT: OMG it's so good, the art is so good, the sound is incredible, the music's amazing, the gameplay is satisfying. It's blowing away my expectations and my expectations were already super high. Wow.
Oh oops, I just realized I posted my other post in the wrong thread. Well first boss beaten, yadda yaddda yadda, awesome game
EDIT: Also I just found a Unicorn Slayer gun which pierces targets. Sally is a MONSTER with this gun. I took out, by accident, 3 targets in a single turn. I was aiming for one but then it pierced, ricocheted off of the walls then hit another and one shot killed him then pierced him, bounced off another wall and killed another. I just burst out laughing. Then she also as this "Kill Shot" ability that lets her shoot a second time after killing someone. I shot again and accidentally killed two targets Whoops.
