Publisher Thunderful Games recently held a digital showcase in which it announced the next chapter in the SteamWorld franchise. SteamWorld Headhunter is billed as a “colorful and stylized” adventure that’ll take the series in a new direction. Check out a trailer below.

An official overview reads:

Taking the series in a fresh direction, SteamWorld Headhunter is a stylised and colourful, third-person co-op action adventure with a head-popping twist.
