We asked a lot of people: what would you do to a clone of yourself?

SteamWorld Heist: A Turn-Based Space Robot Roguelite

One of the most overlooked games of 2013 was Image & Form's SteamWorld Dig.

RPS Exclusive: SteamWorld Dig Coming To PC!

There's a good chance you've not played one of the best games of 2013. Back in August, 3DS download game SteamWorld Dig came from nowhere, to receive a flurry of 8s and 9s. It was a breakout hit on the portable platform, and deservedly so. At that perfect meeting point between Metroidvania and Mr Driller, capturing the essence of Spelunky, and achieving absolutely precision platforming,…
