Platforming-and-mining adventure SteamWorld Dig, a hit on Nintendo's 3DS eShop earlier this year, is set to arrive on Steam for Windows PC and Mac on Dec. 5.
Set against a Spaghetti Western cyberpunk backdrop, the game stars a cowboy robot who tunnels and platforms his way through underground worlds. The game was a breakout success on 3DS, garnering high critical ratings. An HD trailer of the game was released today to accompany the announcement.
According to Brjann Sigurgeirsson, CEO of developer Image & Form, SteamWorld Dig is ready for the jump to desktop gaming. "I don't think that it's a particularly Nintendo-esque game," he said in an interview with Rock, Paper, Shotgun. "It fits the PC just as well. It looks and plays wonderfully on the 3DS, but the high-definition PC version is something else. It's vibrant, detailed and simply stunning. So it doesn't feel like a port at all, rather it's a brand-new perspective on this game where it reaches its potential."
SteamWorld Dig will cost $9.99.
