With Monster Hunter World out of the way, the bulk of January comes to a close. There's still a few major releases this week - the latest UFC game among them - but for the most part it's an opportunity for the indies to shine.


The first SteamWorld Dig was a sleeper hit on the 3DS for development studio Image & Form, selling over a million copies across all platforms, according to Image & Form CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson.

Even with those numbers, its launch was "nowhere near that of SteamWorld Dig 2," which has also been a success for the studio. Three factors contributed to the follow-up's success: better design, a close relationship with Nintendo, and the Switch's coolness.
