SteamWorld Dig 2 to release in September with Linux support

Posted by , / 3087 views

A press email was sent out yesterday about SteamWorld Dig 2 [Steam, Official Site], the good news is that Linux will be supported day-1.

The email was mostly talking about the release on Nintendo Switch, which will be on the 21st of September. However, they state the Steam release will be available a few days later. I spoke to them directly after this email was sent to me and they said a very clear "Yep! :D" in response to my question about a Linux version coming with the Steam release.

About the game

Grab your pickaxe and dig into the sequel to the award-winning SteamWorld Dig! A platform mining adventure in classic Metroidvania style.

In search of her lost friend, a lone steambot and her unlikely companion must dig deep, gain riches and explore an underworld riddled with danger. But time is running short…

They will be sending out more details about the PC release "very soon".

Yus! The first was charming and fun. Had to use antimicro to map keyboard controls to my gamepad though, but fairly sure the new one will be fine since Steamworld Heist had proper gamepad support.

Absolutely loved the first one, I'll be picking this up for sure! I'm more excited by the release of this than something like Hitman. And I mainly play FPS type games. And I loved Hitman.

This will be an insta buy for me. My wife and me loved Steamworld Dig.

Steamworld Dig was great, indeed. But a bit short (I think it took me 7 hours to finish it?).
Hope this one will be a little longer.

Steamworld Dig was great. Steamworld Heist managed to be even better. I sank an embarrassing amount of time into it.

I can't wait to see what they do with this one!

I liked SteamWorld Heist a lot more, but any SteamWorld game is good news

I never played Steam World Dig, even though I got it with one of the Humble Bundles. But I really like Steam World Heist!

SWD2 looks good. I'll keep an eye on it (but will have to finish Heist first).

Steam World Dig was a great game so I will probably get it early on.

The only problem I had with SteamWorld Dig was that it wasn't long enough. This sequel will give me more of what I loved, so I'm happy about that! Just gotta find the time to play it (I have been neglecting digital games for the last 18 months or so).
