The incredibly strange and wonderful catastrophe simulator from Gaslamp Games will arrive on Steam Early Access on August 15th.
From the fevered minds responsible for the critically acclaimed Dungeons of Dredmor comes Clockwork Empires, available for PC on Steam Early Access in August 2014. The colony building sandbox game provides limitless possibilities for the player to balance – develop a city while trying keeping a population alive as it is on the brink of a spectacular, entertaining collapse. Transported into a marvelously handcrafted steampunk dystopia, players take on the role of a Junior Bureaucrat (Colonial Grade) sent forth by the Empire to the frontier to seek fame, promotions, and natural resources to feed the ever-hungry maw of industry and commerce.
Early Access Features (the game will be updated frequently, adding hotfixes and content)
- Build a colony and your character, each with unique histories: The colony set in a Victorian steampunk era, populated by the lower, middle and upper class characters, have their own memories and unfolding futures which are shaped by the player’s choices.
- Free-form goals: Every scenario is what the player makes of it. As the player colonizes an unknown land, objectives are handed down by “The Empire,” but players may choose to align with another faction – or none at all – if so they desire.
- Cosmic Horror, Factories, Booze, Science, Farming, and more: Complete with all the elements for an industrial revolution, a colonial society pushed too far will begin to break down and unleash horrors such as cultists, marauding fish-people, axe murders, and things darker still from beyond the stars.
