STEAMWORLD COLLECTION LAUNCHES AT RETAIL TODAY BRINGING TWO HIT STEAMWORLD GAMES TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME
Two Smash-Hit Titles Now Available Together in a Physical Boxed Edition at Retailers Across the USA, South America, and Canada
LOS ANGELES, CA – November 2, 2016 – Rising Star Games today announced that SteamWorld Collection, from acclaimed developer Image & Form, is now available at participating retailers across the USA, South America, and Canada.
SteamWorld Collection features 2013’s ground-breaking SteamWorld Dig, in which players drill down into a platform game mining adventure full of secrets, treasure, and terrors. Also featured is this year’s SteamWorld Heist, which delivers turn-based strategy with a twist: manually aim the guns of your robots, allowing for insane skill shots and bullet-bouncing action. Board, loot and shoot your way through enemy spaceships and upgrade your recruits with unique abilities, weapons and, of course, stylish hats!
