Two Hit Steamworld Games Available for the First Time Together and at Retail in Steamworld Collection
LONDON, UK – August 25, 2016 – Rising Star Games today announced it has the honour of publishing SteamWorld Collection, from acclaimed developer Image & Form, in October.

Featuring two critically-applauded, 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 Middle East. Rising Star Games also publishes the title on Wii U™ 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 game mining adventure 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 honour and a thrill to partner with a developer of Image & Form’s caliber and renown in order to bring the physical boxed version of two smash hit, critically-acclaimed SteamWorld games to new audiences across the globe,” said Martin Defries, Managing Director of Rising Star Games. “These are deep and rewarding, intricately designed and gorgeous-looking games that, taken together, present an extremely compelling proposition for gamers”.

Developed by Image & Form and published by Rising Star Games, the boxed edition of SteamWorld Collection will release in USA, Canada and South America on PlayStation®4 and Wii U™ at selected retailers in early October priced at $29.99. In Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Middle East, the PlayStation®4 edition will be available from Rising Star Games in early October, priced £29.99/€29.99.
