Default Clockwork Empires

March 22nd, 2014, 09:27
I remember reading about this game last year, but I completely forgot it.

It's called Clockwork Empires a steam-punk city building game being developed by a studio called Gaslamp Games. Here is teaser trailer and other information.

I enjoyed the part with the Cthulhu reference.

Take on the role of a Junior Bureaucrat (Colonial Grade), sent forth to seek fame, promotions, and natural resources to feed the ravenous maw of Imperial Industry & Commerce. Build a prosperous colony, fill it with magnificent factories worked by oppressed labourers, and harness the awesome power of steam through fearsome machines invented by determined men and women of Science! History is yours to seize for fame and fortune, for Science, and for the Queen and the glory of the Clockwork Empires!

Gaslamp Games is the Dungeons of Dredmor people. Seems like a very different game, but it does look interesting

Looks very nice.

Can't say I'm too impressed with the art style, but the Cthulhu reference alone is enough for me to keep an eye on it.

Thanks for sharing that. Sounds quite ambitious. Let's hope they can deliver!

Gaslamp Games posted a new announcement about the game being available on Steam Early Access. Here is part of the announcement, and the link.

Link- https://www.gaslampgames.com/2014/07…rliest-access/
At long last, we are pleased to announce that Clockwork Empires has hit what we are calling Earliest Access – it launches on Friday July 18th, and you can buy it now! Earlier than Early Access, we are continuing our legacy of innovation by daring to release Earlier than any other Early Access developer.

Buying a copy of the Earliest Access build will get you a Steam key, which you can then use to play Clockwork Empires. Your Earliest Access will be upgraded to a copy of the Steam Early Access version when we launch it in August; you will also, subsequently, get the finished game when it’s done.

An overview of the current status of the Clockwork Empires project as a whole can be found here, and we will be regularly updating that page at the same time as the major game content updates so you can see how far along we are.
We will also of course continue to update our development blog, send update emails to people on the mailing list that want them, tweet about development here, and participate in forum discussions here.
