    Looks good so far. I'm wondering when you'll get a letter from lawyers telling you to change the name.

    edit:
    While "alpha release" still seems like an oxymoron to me, kudos for not selling the alpha.

    In my initial attempts to get the game going, the game screen did not size to my desktop, and the initial intro quest wouldn't fire off. Character customization at this point is...low. Obviously, can't say much more about things.

    Some other players also encountered the screen issue during the alpha and we already got alerted. Character customization is not very thorough currently, but more customization will come in the future. We already received some nice suggestions on character customization. Before the second alpha weekend starts (27th), we will have a list of fixed-bugs and new features. Hope you can help us test play the game again this Friday.

    Gear up everyone! The final Alpha weekend for City of Steam will be open in just a matter of hours. If you missed out on a chance to play the game in our previous three weekends but interested in testing it out, check out our partner sites to get a key. If you've received a key already, activate it. If already activated too, well, all that's left is waiting... Alpha starts soon!!

    Just took a look at the City of Steam site and some of the screenshots look quite nice. However the main thing that struck me (first impressions and all that) was the artwork for the various races on the Alpha is Almost Here! blog post. How disappointing! For a self-proclaimed steampunk game, this seems to have the same generic overmuscled, oversexualised character design that infests fantasy. The right-most humans look like strippers, the anime goblins are incongruous with the other races, but worst of all: all females have either oversized chests or impractical armour. Some of the male characters even have unnecessarily low-cut tops!

    Really, I'm getting sick of seeing this ridiculous cleavage-centric girl-armour. CrazyEthan, any chance of taking steps to pioneer non-sexist, adolescent-male pandering clothing for your female characters? It'd be a refreshing change to the fantasy genre.

    Sorry that you don't seem to like the artwork. Though we've never self-proclaimed ourselves to be steampunk. Other people have said that about us! We're an industrial style fantasy, incorporating traditional fantasy with mechanical equipment. As a fantasy genre, it's nice to have a fantasy character, isn't it? It would be great to pioneer such a gender neutral game that you're looking for and trust me, many of the developers here want to. But as a small indie company bringing out our first game, we don't have the market pull to make that influence. There are plenty of games out there that have tried, and failed, because not enough people want to play it! We here at Mechanist would rather have a successful game and integrate gender equality as a progressive change. Our players would be more receptive once the game is established and we'd make a bigger influence on the gaming industry once we're big too! Feel free to drop me a line if you have any other questions.

    We just put up some new dev journals, here's your chance to get a closer look at some cool Ratling animations in Unity, backstories of the charming but manipulative Rivens and a wrapup for all available classes in City of Steam now. Any thoughts?

    Not to worry, in Beta, you'll be able to see far more content and features than Alpha! Hope you can test play Beta this November and give us some thoughts!

    I think you are talking to a bot or a spammer there. Check his other posts.
