Swedish developers Image & Form have just confirmed that their indie title SteamWorld Dig is coming to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita next month through the PSN Store.
Available for €8.99 in Europe and $9.99 is the US, SteamWorld Dig will have support for multiple languages and will be Cross Buy, meaning that if you buy the game on either platform you’ll automatically get it on the other. Branded as a “platform mining adventure” in a steampunk/Western setting, SteamWorld Dig lets players take the role of Eastwood-esque robot protagonist Rusty in order to save a mining town in need. The plot thickens as he digs deeper into the dark and rich underground.
Thanks to its immersive gameplay, unique mechanics and stunning presentation, praise for SteamWorld Dig has been unanimous. As a result, Game of the Year nominations and awards have rained over the game. This is what leading gaming sites say about SteamWorld Dig.
“We are thrilled to present SteamWorld Dig to the PlayStation community,” beams Image & Form CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson. “This is our first release ever on a stationary console, and a long-standing dream of ours. So many PlayStation gamers have asked us to bring the game to their hardware, and we can’t wait to join the community both on PS4 and Vita. We have a fantastic following on 3DS and Steam, and now we will reach a whole new audience. We are really very excited.”
