The Station’s game has already received a demo on one platform, but it is not yet known when Thunderful Games will release it.
Here’s Thunderful Games’ overview: “Be the architect of a SteamWorld mining town! Break ground, 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 ensure everyone works their 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. It’s all up to you!
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. […] Manage and optimize increasingly complex resource chains, tackle dangers you will encounter [in the] SteamWorld universe. Easy to pick up and play with a traditional keyboard and mouse or a controller.”
SteamWorld Build is coming to PlayStation 5 later this year. Xbox Series, PC (Steam), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. A demo is also available on Steam.
