Steampunk Colony-builder Clockwork Empires Finally Arrives on Steam Early Access
Clockwork Empires is a steampunk colony-building sandbox game from Dungeons of Dredmor developer Gaslamp Games. If it sounds familiar, that's because it was first announced nearly two years ago! While the game has been in "Earliest Access" for a little while now, Clockwork Empires has finally arrived on Steam Early Access today. If you're not familiar with the game, Gaslamp has released a trailer entitled "Staving Off Starvation", which happens to be "Part 11 of The Prudent Bureaucrat's Guide to Colonization," providing a glimpse at the game and what it'll take to survive. Now if only the studio released the first ten parts...
To go along with the "Starvation Avoidance" theme, there's also a quickstart guide available on the official site to get you rolling. Do keep in mind that, while it has been updated from "Earliest" to "Early" Access, it truly is just that – there's not even saving. That's scheduled to be added early next week, if everything goes according to plan.
Clockwork Empires is exclusive to PC and available on Steam for $29.99. Gaslamp has stated that the price will neither raise nor lower once the game is out of Early Access (not counting sales, of course).
