The colourful SteamWorld franchise will be plumbing new depths in the just-announced SteamWorld Build, a city builder that tasks you to settle above and below ground in a somewhat novel twist. It's a little bit Sim City, and a lot bit Dungeon Keeper or Evil Genius, and it is absolutely something we will be keeping an eye on when it launches later in 2023 on PS5 and PS4.

The SteamWorld franchise has proven to be one of the more adaptable IPs in recent memory, spawning excellent side-scrolling games in the form of SteamWorld Dig and its sequel, Steamworld Dig 2, before branching out into the criminally underrated SteamWorld Heist, a turn-based tactical shooter. There is even a third-person cooperative game in the works, in the form of SteamWorld Headhunter, to look forward to.
