Way back in the day, there was an Xbox 360 indie title called Miner Dig Deep, it was a nice relaxing game all about sitting back and working away at a mine. Steamworld Dig is just like Miner Dig Deep, except it has robots, monsters, puzzles, and rocket punches. Oh yes, it has sweet, sweet rocket punches.

The Shin Megami Tensei series didn’t pick up much popularity in the UK during the 90’s, and it wasn’t until the persona series came out that the franchise grew its passionate fan base.
