    Default City of Steam Tread - turn based or real-time combat

    Hi everyone, I’m Shirley and I work for a small game developer, Mechanist Games. We are working on our debut title, City of Steam, a browser-based MMO in an industrial setting with steampunk elements.

    To those that don't know what City of Steam is (no surprise there, we're an indie developer, so getting widespread recognition is a relatively harder for us), it's an industrial fantasy/steampunk MMORPG, lightweight enough to play on even older computers and accessible straight from your browser. Even then, thanks to Unity 3D and a lot of in-house tools, we've managed to still make it look quite impressive, and all stored in but a few megabytes!

    And this isn't just some average fantasy world with a few steampunk elements thrown in, oh no! The entire world itself is a mechanism of gears and spokes, with pipes and boilers as ancient as the world itself. Current civilizations are build upon these, and these industrial aspects are simply part of the world's history and daily life; races such as humans and elves do exist, but they live alongside dwarves that are part-machine, robotic toilers that roam the land, and both magical and mechanical monstrosities that threaten their existence. Here is a quick look at the world that CoS is based upon:



    For a better picture of the game, check our latest Closed Beta Trailer, a lot has changed and improved since then, but it can still give a good idea for what we plan to make of our game:



    We may be small, but we’re open-minded and very receptive to player feedback too. If you have any questions regarding City of Steam, feel free to drop me a line, and I’ll answer any questions you may have.

    I wouldn't mind and it's not a heavily used theme but I'm more concerned about the gameplay. From what I've seen from the artwork it looks ok but it's hard to judge anything else about the game without more specifics.

    Be careful of what you say, tomorrow or today, for the words you now speak, may become the poison your enemies later seek; truth.

    Still can't judge it without actual gameplay though.

    This looks really interesting a nice break of run-of-the-mill fantasy, and different from Allods, which kind of took the same rout. If we could get some exclusive info for Onrpg i'm sure it would be appreciated, like how the crafting will work or if leveling s going to be the same as every other mmo out there or different :o

    For a browser based, those are quite the nice graphics. I'm a graphics whore so it counts in my book =^.^=

    Yeah.
    Steampunk is underappreciated, and this is good gfx for a browser-based game. Needs a trailer if you are going to be advertising.

    Thanks for checking our website

    Regarding gameplay, what kind are you seeking for?

    Do you like PVP, large scenery, fierce group combat?

    Do you only want to relax yourself and be your own hero?

    City of Steam uses a combination of large public scenes and smaller privately instanced dungeons. Explore at your own leisure, alone or with a team of friends. Also we have community systems.

    The trailer will be released soon as we're still working on it.

    Let's say he is very very interested in our game. And what about you?
