Thunderful Group’s newest interim report is out now (which you’ll learn right here), and whereas it reveals the corporate had a little bit of a weak first few months of 2022, issues are trying up for it. Most notably, the way forward for considered one of its greatest IPs — the SteamWorld sequence — is trying very brilliant.
Final yr, we discovered a few model new third-person co-op sequel to SteamWorld Dig — SteamWorld Headhunter — on the Thunderful Video games showcase. We have to attend till 2023 to get our arms on that, which is slightly little bit of a wait, however we’ll be rewarded for our endurance with three different SteamWorld video games, all releasing in 2023 or 2024.
These three video games do not at the moment have names or platforms confirmed but, however they do have some very enjoyable challenge names; “Strawberry”, a puzzle sport; “Espresso”, a citybuilder; and “Caramel”, a turn-based tactical shooter technique sport. All of them sound scrumptious — and no, we’re not simply speaking concerning the names, right here.
The SteamWorld sequence has at all times dabbled in various completely different genres, from Metroidvania to deck-builder, and these upcoming entries look to department the franchise out much more. We have now some time to attend till we discover out what these will convey, however we’re by no means going to say no to extra SteamWorld. The final entry within the sequence — SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech — got here out in 2019, and we gave it a strong 8/10 in our overview.
