Four SteamWorld games are in development, including a citybuilder – Rock Paper Shotgun

   <a href="">     4       </a>   <br>Thunderful are working on four new SteamWorld games simultaneously. Alongside the <a href="">previously announced third-person action game SteamWorld Headhunter</a>, they're also making a citybuilding game, a turn-based tactical shooter, and a puzzle game. Three of them are aiming for release next year.  <br>Thunderful made mention of all of the projects in <a href="">their quarterly earnings report</a>, referring to each as a "SteamWorld IP game". The citybuilder is codenamed "Coffee", due for release in 2023, the same year as SteamWorld Headhunter. The "turn-based tactical shooter/strategy" is codenamed "Caramel" and due in 2024. The puzzle game, "Strawberry", is due in 2023 but is apparently only planning to release on mobile.  <br>We've typically loved every SteamWorld game, even as they've leapt from genre to genre, from turn-based tactics in <a href="">SteamWorld Heist</a>, card battler in <a href="">SteamWorld Quest</a>, and platformer in <a href="">SteamWorld Dig 2</a>. I am particularly excited about this studio - Thunderful absorbed/evolved from SteamWorld creators Image &amp; Form - tackling a citybuilder. I have no idea what it would look like, but I've also no reason to think they couldn't pull it off.  <br>For now, it's only SteamWorld Headhunter that we've seen anything of, and only via the teaser trailer embedded above. Headhunter was revealed as <a href="">part of Thunderful World</a>, a 2021 showcase of all the games in the works at the publisher, which was hosted by Mark Hamill.  <br>The earnings report also notes that Thunderful have acquired the Islanders IP. Islanders is a minimalist town builder that <a href="">impressed Alec</a> upon release in 2019. It's apparently now sold over a million copies, and Thunderful plan to expand on it in partnership with the original devs. Nice.  <br>             <a href="/authors/graham-smith">Graham Smith</a>         <br>         Contributor       <br>           Graham used to be to blame for all this.         <br>Subscribe and get access to supporter-only articles, an ad-free reading experience, free gifts, and game discounts.
