SteamWorld Quest: The Hand of Gilgamech is the latest game in the SteamWorld series, and it’s out for Nintendo Switch today! It’s a Fantasy Card Battle RPG! I made this guide to help players find all the items, secrets, and handle all the bosses! It’s still slightly a work in progress (the game came out today) but I’ll keep updating it. You can help me finish by helping out with the cards spreadsheet!
2019-06-18: Added a nice searchable, sortable table of weapons and effects. Thanks to everyone who helped with the spreadsheet! Added preliminary card table. Need to tidy it up.
Added some official art to pretty things up. Added secret locations to some of the areas in Walkthrough.
SteamWorld Quest Quick Start Guide
- You might think grinding wouldn’t matter much for a card battle game, only letting you get new cards. However, cards’ affects are based on your characters’ base stats, which grow significantly each level. If you’re stuck, don’t be afraid to grind, even one level can make a large difference.
- Don’t worry about missing things; you can replay chapters later on, getting the opportunity to fully revisit the story, treasure, and enemy formations even if you miss something.
- Difficulty can be changed at any time; feel free to adjust it up or down at will!
- There’s no real penalty for losing; you’re shot back to the last Gilgamech statue you healed at but you’ll have to try again of course.
