The studio behind the Steamworld franchise, Thunderful Games, has unveiled its new digital games showcase, Thunderful World. Taking place on November 10th at 7pm GMT, the event will be hosted by Star Wars’ Mark Hamill and streamed via Twitch, YouTube and the Thunderful World website.

Sigurgeirsson said, “Thunderful World is the perfect way for us to reach our existing fans and a global audience as we showcase our growing influence in the games development and publishing industry. When we shared our plans with Mark, he instantly understood our vision and we are delighted he wants to help us share it with the world”.

Event host Mark Hamill evidently shares Sigurgeirsson's enthusiasm saying, “When I saw the passion and artistry behind all the incredible games Thunderful are going to present, I was blown away”.
