Gothenburg, Sweden - October 12th, 2023 - In the leadup to the launch of SteamWorld Build on PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch on December 1st, Thunderful has launched a new website that will serve as a one stop shop for their beloved flagship series.

On the website, fans, media and content creators can find out detailed information on SteamWorld Build, as well as getting assets to high quality assets via a new Content Creator Kit that includes stream overlays, backgrounds and emotes, as well as a press kit featuring press releases, screenshots, key art and the latest trailers. On the new site, you can sign up for a newsletter to ensure you are the first to know whenever a new piece of SteamWorld news drops.

While the website is currently focused on SteamWorld Build, it will be updated to encompass the past, present and future of the beloved series.


SteamWorld Build is the newest entry in the award-winning SteamWorld franchise. Welding the city-building genre to Dungeon Keeper-like underground mining and oiling the cogs with that unique SteamWorld secret sauce, SteamWorld Build offers a never before seen take on the city-builder genre from The Station.

Developed for PC and console simultaneously, every aspect of SteamWorld Build’s has been designed to ensure that the game works just as well with a controller in hand as it does with mouse and keyboard, bringing a traditionally PC-centric genre to console without compromise. As well as welcoming players regardless of what platform they are on, SteamWorld Build follows the series' tradition in catering to both experienced players and newcomers.


As the architect of a SteamWorld mining town, break ground and raise houses for your steambot citizens, keep them fed and provide some rootin'-tootin' entertainment. Venture into the abandoned mine sitting under your town, rumoured to be filled with ancient tech that holds the key to escaping impending doom. Using the natural resources above ground and the abundant ores buried below, expand your town, stimulate new residential tiers to join the quest to dig deeper, unearth untold riches and ultimately help them to hightail it off the planet!

“We’ve always been grateful to the SteamWorld community for their support and, of course, Thunderful is very proud of the series, so this new website makes perfect sense as way to help communicate with the world about SteamWorld Build and the series as a whole” said SteamWorld Universe and Franchise Director, Brjánn Sigurgeirsson. “We hope you check it out and sign up to the mailing list as we continue to add more to the site going forward."
