SteamWorld Dig is a platform mining adventure with strong Metroidvanian influences.
Take the role of Rusty, a lone mining steambot, as he arrives at an old mining town in great need. Dig your way through the old earth, gaining riches while uncovering the ancient threat that lurks below.
Carve a path through the earth, and explore a deep underground world full of secrets, treasure and terrors.
Uncover the remnants of Human civilization, a degenerate race of drunken, dynamite-wielding troglodytes.
Meet the weird and interesting townsfolk of Tumbleton and help the community get back on its feet.
Beautiful, high-res graphics with dynamic lights and multiple parallaxed background layers.
Randomized worlds with emergent gameplay - a fancy way of saying that the game is both fun and replayable!
Clutter-free HD graphics. The map and other interface elements are now displayed on the Wii U GamePad.
