A portion of a NintenDoomed interview with Image & Form...

Q: The first game from the SteamWorld series, Tower Defense, had a decent success, obviously not comparable to that of its successors. Is there any possibility to give this game a second shot, maybe in the form of a port or maybe even a remake?

A: You’re right – it’s not really comparable! 😀 Yes, it’s quite possible that we’ll look into a prettier and better version of SWTD in the future. When we made it (for the Nintendo DSi), we actually did a tiny bit of research. There were no tower defense games on that platform at the time, so we decided we could fill a gap. We actually made SWTD very quickly, but naturally – once we were done with it, there were already three other TD games there. :S

Q: We know it’s all super secret stuff, but don’t you have any little-bitty piece of info about your projects with the Nintendo Switch that you can share with us? Pretty please?

A: Thanks for the flattery! 😀 It’s a SteamWorld game, that’s all I can say at the moment. 🙂

Q: Do you think you’ll come back to SteamWorld Dig’s world someday? We miss Rusty, you know…

A: Haha! Yeah, what happened to him at the end there…? We’re curious ourselves. I’m sure there’s a story to be told.
