-- Press release -- Gothenburg, Sweden. March 18, 2014

Congratulations Vita and PS4 gamers!

Today marks a milestone in the history of Image & Form; The first release ever on a home console! We are proud to announce the release of SteamWorld Dig on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. It will launch TODAY in the Americas and tomorrow (March 19) in Europe at the price of $9.99 in the US and 8.99€ in the EU. The game will be featured in Sony’s Spring Fever promotion on PSN with a 20% discount to PlayStation Plus members for the first week.

SteamWorld Dig will have support for multiple language as well as a cross-buy feature for PS4 and Vita allowing SteamWorld Dig  to be played on both consoles. Branded as a “platform mining adventure” in a steampunk/western setting, SteamWorld Dig lets the player take the role of the Eastwood-esque robot protagonist Rusty in order to save a mining town in need. The plot thickens as he digs deeper into an underground full of treasure and terror...

“We are thrilled to present SteamWorld Dig to the PlayStation community,” beams Image & Form CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson. “This is our first release ever on a stationary console, and a long-standing dream of ours.

We have a fantastic following on 3DS and Steam, and now we will reach a whole new audience. We are really very excited.”
