SteamWorld Dig 2 Borrowed From Classic American Westerns

SteamWorld Dig 2 takes place in a colorful world inspired by Western movies. “Is there such a thing as something too western-y?” Image & Form CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson wondered to me over email. If you look at the game, apparently not.

Discover and destroy a deep Metroid-style world in SteamWorld Dig 2

Discover and destroy a deep Metroid-style world in SteamWorld Dig 2

Do not hire me to dig a tunnel. If you put me in an actual mine equipped with an actual pickaxe, I'd collapse the entire thing in a matter of minutes. My first few hours with SteamWorld Dig 2 have proven that. I've dug straight up and dropped boulders on my head. I've dug straight down and plummeted to my death. I should've checked, but I was in a hurry. There was loot. As you may have figured out, this is a game about digging tunnels. You play as Dorothy, a twin-tailed robot miner on a mission to find Rusty, the protagonist of the first SteamWorld Dig. Armed with an upgradeable pickaxe and an ever-expanding array of gadgets, you plunge deeper and deeper into the earth in search of Rusty's last known whereabouts—and anything shiny that isn't nailed down. It's Metroidvania at heart, but SteamWorld Dig 2 is as much about carving your own path as it is navigating an item-gated platforming adventure.

Steamworld Dig 2 launch trailer highlights the beauty and danger of its underground world

Image & Form Games announced last week that Steamworld Dig 2 will arrive on the PC on September 22, just one day—rather than the "few days" we expected—after it debuts on the Nintendo Switch. With both of those dates now looming, the studio has released the official launch trailer, showing off some of the game's lovely underground environments and a handful of the nasties who live in them. Steamworld Dig 2 is a robotic spelunking adventure that takes place in a steam-driven, Wild West-style world. It's not really big on story—"In search of her lost friend, a lone steambot and her unlikely companion must dig deep, gain riches and explore an underworld riddled with danger. But time is running short…" is the entirety of the synopsis on Steam—but the sprawling, secret-fillled world of the first game was a lot of fun to explore. If you haven't tried it yet, here's a reminder that it remains free on Origin throug
