Gaslamp “Dungeons Of Dredmor” Games have just revealed their new game, Clockwork Empires. It’s a 3D sandbox building game with a 19th century colonial/Steampunk theme. That sounds exciting enough on its own, but, really, check out this paraphrased feature-list: “New “procedural extrusion” technology lets you design your colony the way you want! Buildings are procedurally generated and extruded directly from the aether to your specifications! Tame the uncharted continents by land, sea, and air! Set forth in mighty Zeppelins to do battle with Sky Pirates, or take to the seas in search of fortune and probably sea serpents! Create magnificent acts of plumbing, link together mighty gears, and build ominous Megaprojects! Tangle with the machinations of malevolent entities! Scry the legacy of the Invisible Geometers, fumigate the baleful moon-fungus of the Selenian Polyps, and cleanse the scuttling creepiness and poor personal and moral hygiene of your everyday, average cultist.” No online DRM, and multiplayer.
Oh yes. It’s going to be moddable, too. Beautiful promotional poster below.
