SteamWorld Dig 2 is a Metroidvania action-platformer with a bit of a twist. Instead of simply running around and beating down every single indigenous lifeform you encounter, in SteamWorld Dig 2 you are able to tunnel your way through certain portions of the world in order to create new pathways, shortcuts, or routes to secret treasures. Just make sure not to dig straight down as you might not live long enough to regret falling straight into lava!

You can get a good glimpse at what all of this looks like in-game through the recently posted launch trailer down below. Have a look, its not a very long video:

SteamWorld Dig 2 has only just released, so take the following with a few grains of salt, but all 14 of its currently available user reviews are singing its praises. I would still recommend you wait a couple of days in order to see if any flaws dig their way to the surface, but so far I'm glad to say that SteamWorld Dig 2 appears to be a pretty damn good game!

If you would like to learn more about it, or just grab yourself a copy, you should head to either Steam or the official website. And finally, here's a couple of colorful images to send you on your merry way:
