SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech RPG card game for Linux, Mac and Windows. The latest in the series thanks to developer Imagine and Form. Since this is a new year it’s time for new things. And while the developer is proud to announce their newest game.
While SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech is coming first to Nintendo Switch in 2019. You can bet the games coming to Linux, Mac and Windows as well. Naturally I reached out to Image and Form with some good news.
Game engine and Linux support:
What game engine is being used for SteamWorld Quest development?
It’s our own, that is, C++.
And, can we expect to see a Linux port?
I can’t see why not – it’s worked well in the past. 🙂
If so, when will the PC release be available?
That’s still a secret to everybody. It’ll come out in 2019, though.
Since this is some good news, we are eager to share. And I’m a fan of the Steamworld series. So I want to see how Image and Form will introduce the rpg card game. Mind you the SteamWorld Quest play-style seems seems similar to the successful Slay the Spire. With some Darkest Dungeon thrown in there.
However, the fact that we have Linux confirmation for SteamWorld Quest is somewhat expected. The developer has a habit of releasing their games on Nintendo first. Which also gives the community a look into the games review score. Ahead of the Linux, Mac and Windows launch.
SteamWorld Quest is the roleplaying card game you’ve been waiting for. Where you lead a party of heroic steambots through a beautifully hand-drawn world. Also bringing with it some intense battles. So you must use your wits and a handful of cards. Taking on whatever threat comes your way by crafting your deck. Choosing from over 100 unique punch cards.
What awaits you in SteamWorld Quest is a luscious treasure chest filled with gold, dragons, vivid worlds. Also magic, knights in shining armor as well as XP. There are turn-based battles and all that good RPG stuff too. The humorous mix of traditional fantasy and steampunk robots makes for an unforgettable experience.

So now SteamWorld Quest brings a new kind of game. Surprising and delighting both fans of the genre as well as existing SteamWorld fans.
For years, the SteamWorld community has asked Image and Form to create an RPG. In fact, on multiple occasions the developer asked followers what they’d like us to make next. And so far an RPG has been the number one request.
Since this is possibly the greatest adventure yet. The developer will reveal more details about SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech in the coming months. Including price, release date, story, gameplay details, future platforms and so on.
