Clockwork Empires is a multiplayer real-time strategy game. Take on the role of a Junior Bureaucrat (Colonial Grade), sent forth to seek fame, promotions, and natural resources to feed the ravenous maw of Imperial Industry & Commerce. Build a prosperous colony, fill it with magnificent factories worked by oppressed labourers, and harness the awesome power of steam through fearsome machines invented by determined men and women of Science!
Note: This is a buy-to-play retail game.
Build a colony: Manage the characters who live in it, each with unique histories: The colony set in a Victorian steampunk era, as well as the lower, middle and upper class characters, have their own memories and unfolding futures which are shaped by your choices.
Free-form goals: Every scenario is what the you make of it. As you colonize an unknown land, objectives are given by “The Empire”, but you may choose to align with another faction - or none at all - if so you desire.
Cosmic Horror, Factories, Booze, Science, Et Cetera: Complete with all the elements for an industrial revolution, a colonial society pushed too far will break down and unleash horrors such as cultists, marauding fish-people, axe murderers, and things darker still from Beyond the Stars.
Sharing and Successive Multiplayer: Supporting up to four players online, or via a turn-based ‘round robin’ successive multiplayer, the saved-game file option encourages other player Bureaucrats to further diverge histories and continue building & expanding those colonies.
