Thunderful presents new SteamWorld game in addition to already strong lineup

Thunderful Group has presented SteamWorld Build, a new game in the acclaimed SteamWorld series to be released in 2023. The game is destined for all consoles as well as PC and joins a lineup of high-profile games already announced.


Thunderful announced SteamWorld Build, the latest addition to the award-winning, multi-million selling SteamWorld franchise, in a digital event published Monday January 23. The game, in which you build and manage a western mining town populated by steam-driven robots, is developed by the internal studio The Station, based in Karlshamn, Sweden. Thunderful will release SteamWorld Build on PC and all consoles later this year.  

”Looking at the metrics, this is our strongest announcement ever. SteamWorld Build is the sixth installment in the franchise, and the first SteamWorld game to launch since 2019. We have great hopes that it will live up to the commercial and critical success of the previous titles”, says Brjánn Sigurgeirsson, SteamWorld Universe and Franchise Director at Thunderful Games.  

SteamWorld Build joins a group of highly anticipated games that Thunderful has previously announced. Among these are Viewfinder, a mind-bending first-person adventure in which you can bring pictures to life by placing them into the world, the sci-fi action platformer Replaced, and the cinematic puzzle game Planet of Lana which will be released in spring 2023. 

“The interest and expectations from press and gamers have never been greater than now. This is a result of the hard work and collective effort that has been generated across Thunderful Games’ teams within marketing, production and development” says Anders Maiqvist, Acting CEO of Thunderful Group.
