SteamWorld Dig screenshot of some dark and toxic caverns

SteamWorld Dig 2 arrived a little while ago, and in order to get people interested in this particular brand of Metroidvania the developers are now offering the original SteamWorld Dig for free. So if you're up for shooting and tunneling your way through a variety of massive levels, simply head on over to Origin.

This promotion will last for a limited time only, though what exactly that means I'm afraid I don't know. The previous free games distributed by Origin were around for quite a few months, so I'd imagine the same will apply to SteamWorld Dig as well, but I would still recommend you get it as soon as possible, just to be on the safe side.

If you're wondering what SteamWorld Dig is even all about, allow me to leave you with one of the original trailers. Its not a very long video, but it should give you a pretty damn good idea of just what kind of Metroidvania game you're getting yourself into. Enjoy!
