Image & Form has announced Steam Powered Giraffe will be working on the soundtrack for the upcoming space strategy adventure SteamWorld Heist. Alongside releasing the music video for the first song from SteamWorld Heist, entitled “Prepare for Boarding”.
Steam Powered Giraffe will not only be creating all the songs for SteamWorld Heist, but they will also be featured in the game as a troupe that Captain Piper and her crew encounter in bars while recruiting fighters. Players will also be able to collect sheet music that contain music from Steam Powered Giraffe, which can be played later on in the jukebox located on Captain Piper’s ship.
Image & Form’s CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson has expressed his pleasure at the partnership. “A SteamWorld game about steam-powered robots featuring real-world steam-powered robots. It’s perfect!”
“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,” said Sigurgeirsson. “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.”
Steam Powered Giraffe member David Michael Bennett also expressed his happiness at being asked to collaborate on Image & Form’s next title. “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!”
SteamWorld Heist is due to release in spring 2015, and Image & Form are aiming to release it for “all platforms”. Though there are no details as to which platform the game will release on first at this time.
