SteamWorld Dig 2

Kotaku caught up with Image & Form CEO Brjann Siegurgeirsson for a look back on the original SteamWorld Dig as well as its sequel. While speaking with the site, Siegurgeirsson revealed that the first game has sold over one million copies collectively.

Image & Form indicated last week that SteamWorld Dig 2 was off to a fast start on Switch after only having been available for a couple of days. Today, the company shared more on the game’s strong debut.

Image & Form says that SteamWorld Dig 2 is the biggest launch in SteamWorld history. It has sold faster than any other game the team has made previously. Specifically on Switch, SteamWorld Dig 2 is “topping the charts in as good as every country.”

What’s most encouraging of all is that Image & Form has “already earned back most of the game’s total development budget.” That bodes well for the studio going forward.
