The folks at Thunderful are back at it with a new installment in the SteamWorld series. As the developer is wont to do, this latest game, dubbed SteamWorld Build, will be diverging from previous genres that the series has dabbled in. This time around, players can look forward to a city builder with dungeon crawling elements.

Here’s Thundeful’s breakdown of the game:


Be the architect of a SteamWorld mining town! Break ground and raise houses for your steambot citizens, keep them fed and provide some rootin’-tootin’ entertainment.

There’s an abandoned mine sitting under your town, and it’s rumored to be filled with ancient tech that holds the key to escaping the impending doom. Use the natural resources above ground and the abundant ores buried in the mine to expand your town. Stimulate new residential tiers to join the quest to dig deeper, unearth untold riches and ultimately help them to hightail it off the planet!

As the town expands in all directions, new kinds of steamfolk find their way to the settlement – and their needs are ever more complex to satisfy. To keep everyone content, you’ll need to make sure everyone works their darn hardest.

Buy items to boost the efficiency of buildings. Keep goods flowing up and down the mine by speeding up the miners with encouraging jolts of electricity. Or just barter at the local train station and get what you need that way. It’s all up to you!

Mine & Explore
As you go hunting deeper and deeper in the mine after riches, eventually something will start hunting you back. Defend your workers from creepy creatures and keep the walls from caving in as you explore the deeper levels of your mine.

SteamWorld Build is slated to launch some time in 2023. Note that if you’d like to try the game out right away, there’s a demo on Steam that you can access. Thunderful is also teasing that there’s more big news relating to SteamWorld coming up, so keep your sets tuned to Nintendojo for future updates.
