Steam-Powered Space-Travel!

Image & Form announced earlier today that they're currently developing a new game titled SteamWorld Heist! This game is not a "true sequel" to SteamWorld Dig, but does share some similarities such as the art-style and steam-centric powers as well as returning characters, but the gameplay is completely different. Here's what Image & Form had to say during this morning's “elevator pitch”:

Image & Form wrote:SteamWorld Heist is a game about space adventures and survival. Recruit a team of ragtag robots to explore and scavenge the remains of a destroyed world. Board enemy ships and command your crew in a unique variety of turn-based combat.

Taking place some time after SteamWorld Dig, a cataclysmic event has shattered the planet and forced its population into steam-driven spaceships. It’s a robot-eat-robot world out there, and water is desperately hard to come by. Heisting other ships and bases – bad guys fortunately, the lot of them – is their only way to remain in operation.

Image & Form is aiming for a February/March release and the game is going to be released on several different platforms including the Wii U and 3DS! Below are a list of details regarding this upcoming title:
