Image and Form Announces SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech

During today’s Indie Highlight video from Nintendo UK, a new Steamworld game was announced! We have the trailer for the game and more infomation below.

Image & Form announced Steamworld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech today. The game is an rpg that uses cards to attack enemies.

According to a press release we received players will “Lead a party of heroic steambots through a beautifully hand-drawn world and intense battles, using only your wits and a handful of cards. Take on whatever threat comes your way by crafting your own deck, choosing from over 100 unique punch cards!”

Steamworld Quest is further described as a “luscious treasure chest filled with gold, dragons, vivid worlds, magic, knights in shining armor as well as XP, turn-based battles and all that good RPG stuff! The humorous mix of traditional fantasy and steampunk robots makes for an unforgettable experience with lots of laughs.”

I love Steamworld Dig, Dig 2, and Steamworld Heist. Image & Form always does a great job with their games.

That said, I am not a big fan of card based rpgs. I wish they had gone with a regular turn-based rpg system instead of the cards. However, with this being Image and Form and Steamworld, I’m more than willing to give the game a chance. It does look fun despite my fear of card based rpgs (well its not really a fear…I guess…)

Plus, do you see those graphics?! Jaw dropping. Yes, even the cards look cool.

Steamworld Quest is coming out later in 2019.┬áIt’ll be on Nintendo Switch first, with it coming to other systems later.

Are you looking forward to Steamworld Quest?
