It's a bit of okay isn't it? Three hours in so far & most definitely worth the three quid.

Yes. Only Animal Crossing was more addictive to me on the 3DS last year.

Yep, I'm another who is quite fond of it. I absolutely rattled through it when I downloaded it two weeks ago - I enjoyed it that much. I hope there's more to come from SteamWorld Dig.

I'm surprised this didn't already have a thread as a fair few forum members (and me) like it.

Yep SteamWorld Dig is awesome.
The developers are friendly too. It's the first time ever I've recommended a game on Twitter only for the developers to PM me with a "Thank You! Glad you liked it!" message.

Agreed, this is an all-round great little game, so tightly designed and memorable despite it being about digging. I even rebought it on PC just to have an excuse to play through it once more.

The developers seem like a great bunch. I had a nice chat with a member of the team at the Nintendo booth at the Eurogamer Expo and learnt a lot about the inception of the game. He was really humbled that I enjoyed it, too, which I thought was nice.

It's a shame they didn't make enough money off the 3DS version alone to cover its cost, but they did have such ambitious sales estimates.

Aye they really are a great bunch, going to keep a close eye out for their future projects as well.

Getting close to finishing this one. It's drained my XL battery twice so far. A good sign.

Question for those who've finished this. Did you collect all the treasure stuff & have all your gizmos fully maxed out?

I think I was missing 2 or 3 upgrades. I would happily have got the rest if I hadn't wandered into the final boss room.

And started! Long after all of you. It's okay so far. I'm not a fan of the ability to permanently lose access to treasure, which is pretty game-defining. Still, carving out my own mine is fun.

Speaking of nice developers - I remember tweeting about BIT.TRIP BEAT when it was first released on WiiWare, and Gaijin Games tweeted me, glad that I enjoyed it. Then they became indie superstars. But I knew them before that. Best friends.

With little else to play (Unepic isn't really enthralling me to be honest) I've got back into this. I've just unlocked the drill, and while I am starting to feel more impressed by the gameplay, the general aesthetic wore old fast. Give me a different aesthetic and background music, or a less procedurally generated mine, or bosses to fight: anything to relieve the monotony!

And despite this, I'm still playing. It's quite an addictive little thing.

I must get back into this myself. I must be near the end, but somehow I never seem to be able to sit down with it for any more than a lunch break.

Doesn't sound like you've got too far in. Having finished it, I can tell you that the game mixes it up more as you get further into it, but you might be disappointed when it comes to boss fights. It's not a long game, but it's brilliantly paced and well worth sticking with.

This. I found that the further you get into it, the more eager it is at introducing new mechanics or abilities. In fact I found myself progressing through it faster than I'd have liked because of that.

I think I've hit the first aesthetic switch-up now - everything's gone a bit green.  There's a sense of pride in sliding down the tunnels of my upper mine, and a sense of annoyance when I accidentally break one of those cracked blocks on the way down.

EDIT: Okay now Steamworld Dig is just confirming what I already new: humans are asshats. Also, steel armadillos.

I thought my brief review-ette might not get me any fans. It's a memorable game, I'll give it that, but I could not be bothered with the final third.

Got hooked and finished it today. Great little game! Just a bit frustrating collecting treasure and backtracking a tonne, because it's hard to know whether it's worth spending orbs on teleports or on upgrades. I found I was finding far too many orbs right at the end, when I didn't really need to buy teleports any more.
