    The Secret of Odin: A Lovecraftian Steampunk Citybuilder

    Gaslamp Games have just made a press release unveiling their secret "Project Odin", it turns out to be Clockwork Empires. A city builer in a victorian Steampunk setting with lovecraftian elements. Read for yourself and discuss:

    http://www.gaslampgames.com/2012/08/...press-release/

    I am completely hooked for this already. Especially because I loved Dungeons of Dredmor.

    God damn it I love these guys.

    No always-online DRM requirement, unlike certain other games we donít want to mention. You know who you are and your mothers are very disappointed.


    I'll certainly keep an eye on it.

    Here's the PC Gamer preview. Very excited about this, Gaslamp has quickly become one of my favorite devs.

    Oooh, it's quite pretty! While I was reading the announcement I was wondering what it'd look like.

    I know anything this guys do will be full of a really nice sense of humor fun ideas and will receive lots of support, so I'm ready to throw money at ANYTHING they do. This included, of course.

    After reading PC Gamer's preview, I can say I'm hyped as all hell, and will be buying this on day 1 (as I did with Dredmor) or even preordering.
    Only thing that didn't like was how much they mentioned DF, since I know it's just impossible for this or anything to quite be as deep and complex as DF. Not that I wont be enjoying this game as much as DF, of course.

    Even if it has 1/100th the depth of DF it'll still be deeper than the deepest reaches of hell.

    You had me at H.P Lovecraft, good sir.

    Will keep an eye out for this, like a hawk.

    I can't help but throw more money at Gaslamp every time they release a Dredmore expansion (they added a Communism skill set. How could I not shower them with the rewards of capitalism?).

    I will be watching this one most attentively. The concept is pure mad brilliance.

    And suddenly, SimCity 5's DRM and Origin-only ties don't matter or hurt so much; Gaslamp will soothe the pain.

    I'm getting far too pumped for this game. The wait could be deadly.

    I like the idea of city builders, but I just can't get excited about monorails and "the citizens are upset you reduced the frequency of rubbish collection from every 6 days to every 7 days".

    Brass monorails and weekly escaped lab animal exterminations, on the other hand....
