PRESS RELEASE


TWO HIT STEAMWORLD GAMES AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME TOGETHER IN RETAIL STORES IN STEAMWORLD COLLECTION

Rising Star Games to Publish the Physical Boxed Edition of SteamWorld Collection in Retail Stores in October

Los Angeles, CA – August 25, 2016 – Rising Star Games today announced it has the honor of publishing SteamWorld Collection, from acclaimed developer Image & Form. The SteamWorld Collection will be launching in October 2016.

Featuring two critically-acclaimed, award-winning and massive-scoring games – SteamWorld Dig and SteamWorld Heist – in the same package for the very first time, SteamWorld Collection is published by Rising Star Games on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system in USA, Canada, South America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and the Middle East. Rising Star Games will also publish the title on the Wii U system in USA, Canada, and South America.

SteamWorld Collection features 2013’s seminal SteamWorld Dig, and this year’s smash hit SteamWorld Heist, presented together as a double-dose of SteamWorld satisfaction.

Drill down into a platform, mining adventure game full of secrets, treasure and terrors in SteamWorld Dig, and discover a world of steam-driven robots, inspired by Western and Steampunk themes. SteamWorld Heist on the other hand offers 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!

“It is an honor and a thrill to partner with a developer of Image & Form’s caliber and renown in order to bring the physical boxed version of these two smash hits, critically-acclaimed SteamWorld games to new audiences across the globe,” said Martin Defries, Managing Director of Rising Star Games. “These are deep, rewarding, intricately designed, and gorgeous-looking games that, paired together, present an extremely compelling proposition for gamers.”

    I absolutely love collection releases. Multiple games in one package is fantastic as a deal. May have to pick this up for Wii U down the line.
