Gaslamp Games, the studio behind Dungeons of Dredmor, are letting their new colony-building game, Clockwork Empires, hit Steam very soon.
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!
In the simulation game, you attempt to keep your city and population thriving as it's nearing collapse. Your choices will determine the future for the city and its unique inhabitants. Expect some bumps along the way like axe murderers and cultists to try to ruin your success, as usual of a strategy simulator.
Clockwork Empires will be available on Steam Early Access starting August 15th, for $29.99. You can also find out how far through development Gaslamp actually is at their status page
