SteamWorld Dig (WiiU)

Arcade 28 August 2014

An action-platform game developed by independent Swedish studio Image & Form. The game takes place in an unusual universe that combines the traits of steampunk and Wild West settings. Once human civilization had fallen and the Homo sapiens was reduced to cave-dwelling troglodytes, weird creatures that are mostly robots became the new dominant species. One of them is the main protagonist of the game, Rusty. While looking for remains of human civilization, he starts a journey deep into the ground, where he looks for interesting treasures. During the game the player is traveling through caves, avoiding traps, fighting enemies, collecting minerals and making sure to always have access to light. The protagonist can use various useful tools that enable him to decide in which direction should the tunnel be dug. After filling the backpack we return to the surface and trade the minerals we've found for various goods and upgrades for the protagonist.
