Caaaan yoooou excavate it?

If you jump onto EA’s Origin dashboard right now, you can bag yourself a copy of the 2013 mining adventure game SteamWorld Dig, free of charge, as part of their rotational On The House promotion.

Once you log in and select the game for download, it’s then tied to your account permanently, to be played immediately or at your convenience. The game, which features resource management, platforming elements and some puzzle-solving, is definitely worth checking out, should it have passed you by on its initial release.

In related news, SteamWorld Dig 2 has been given a launch date. The Nintendo Switch version will be available on September 21, with The PS4 and PS Vita versions are coming to North America and Europe September 26 & 27, respectively.
