Thunderful (an amalgamation of Swedish indie devs Image & Form and Zoink) has been delighting us with its clunkety, clankety retro-futuristic SteamWorld series since SteamWorld Tower Defence on the Nintendo DSi all the way back in 2010. While that particular game may not have been the most explosive of starts - it's definitely the weakest...
Kicking off the month in a great way!
It's time for December, and that means we've got two more games joining Xbox Game Pass today! One of them is a brand-new release in SteamWorld Build, while the other is the Icelandic-inspired adventure game Spirit of the North. Here's more information about what you can expect from these Xbox Game Pass...
December's first Game Pass addition!
The first game in December's Xbox Game Pass lineup is the brand-new release of SteamWorld Build, which officially arrives for console, PC and cloud on Friday, December 1st. Ahead of that date, the reviews have begun rolling in over the past hour, including here at Pure Xbox where we gave the game an "Excellent"...
It's been a quiet few days, but there's good stuff ahead!
It's been one of those rare weeks where we've seen nothing arrive on Xbox Game Pass whatsoever, but don't forget that November 2023's Game Pass lineup isn't finished just yet - and December's is about to begin too! Next Tuesday (November 28th) sees the arrival of Dune: Spice Wars and

One final landrush! The planet is dyin', Astrid, and it's dig or die trying!
That mine under our town is sitting empty, and wouldn't you know there's rumours of ancient tech down there that might help us out of this predicament. Round up the posse, circle the wagons, and let's get to building a new home! Collect resources above ground and ores down below so we can get those wealthy bots in here to help us build bigger, and we can get the heck out of here!
As your borders expand, new steamfolk will find their way to you! Every bot is crotchety in their own way, and it's up to you to keep them steaming along. Barter to boost efficiency, keep goods flowing to and from the mines and keep everyone happy to make them work their darndest and hardest.
Stare into the abyss long enough and it might just stare back... we're going looking for riches and something down there doesn't want to share! Have gun, dig gravel, and make sure the mines don't collapse upon you as you defend yourselves from the creepy crawlies that lurk within...
