The developers at Image & Form revealed that their upcoming title, SteamWorld Heist, will include a collaboration with Steam Powered Giraffe where this band will be working on the title’s soundtrack (including songs and in-game music) and also appear as a troupe in the title. In addition, during a mission it will be possible to collect sheet music containing the band’s songs which will also be playable on a jukebox later.

Before going to further details, you can see a musical video Image & Form released, called “Prepare for Boarding”:

The CEO at Image & Form,  Brjann Sigurgeirsson, happily commented:

“A SteamWorld game about steam-powered robots featuring real-world steam-powered robots. It’s perfect!”

He also elaborated:

“I met with SPG at E3 in June to seal the deal, and since I love their music I have to admit I was a bit starstruck. But it turned out they loved our games as well. We’re very much alike, childish and pretty resourceful. They wear a bit more makeup at times, is all.”

There are also words from the band, where David Michael Bennett said:

“Luckily, make-up aside, our mechanical cog-filled hearts were in synch. When asked if we would like to collaborate with Image and Form on their next SteamWorld game we immediately said yes! We loved SteamWorld Dig, and a steam-powered robot band making music for a steam-powered robot game? Count us in!”

“It’s a unique and enjoyable experience for the band. There is definitely a ton of passion going into the game, from them, from us, it’s a labor of love and we personally can’t wait to share our contributions to the game with the world.”
