That impenetrable castle of good taste that is the Indiegames Blog has posted footage of a game called Steamlands, the current project of indie dev nitrome. Steamlands is a Captain Forever style action game wherein you’re expected to build your vehicle as you go, but with the tower defence twist that the turrets on it are semi-automated. RPS has never done stickers for games, like “MUST BUY” or “ONE TO WATCH”, but if we did then I would waste no time in slapping one on this game that read “FULL GORGEOUS”. Plenty of footage awaits after the jump.
Here’s your in-game footage…
…and here’s your development trailer, providing an interesting look at some of the decisions and challenges involved in making the game. Also, a look at a man doing a wheelie on a penny farthing. It’s as if they know us!
