Steamworld Dig 2 trailer-first commentary

The Steamworld games have some of my all-time favorite trailers. So I recorded my immediate reactions to the launch trailer, provide some trailer takeaways, and then show how much I love the game's core loop.

Howdy, travelers! Steamworld Dig 2 sat at the top of my list of anticipated Nintendo Switch releases. And BOY, if it doesn't make good on my hopes!

While the launch trailer for the game took me by surprise (with a tiny bit less of the legendary finesse that I've come to expect from Julius Guldbog and Tombias Nilsson), it captures everything essential about the game. This trailer serves as perhaps the best illustration of how to make an extremely strong trailer — humbly representing the experience.

After a brief trailer reflection, I jump into the game's core loop — and get carried away. IT'S JUST SUCH A FUN GAME, GUYS! Stick around as long as you like.
