Dungeons of Dredmor developer Gaslamp Games has announced their next title, Clockwork Empires. Set for a spring 2014 release, the Linux, Mac, and Windows PC colony builder/management sim follows a Colonial Grade civil servant of the Empire sent to spread its reach and fortune in a new world. Players will have access to steam-powered machines, settlers with their own skills and ambitions, and the ability to go online and share powerful tech with other Imperial pioneers. Beware: progress too far and “Unthinkable Horrors” will arise to attack the colony (see: Cthulhu).
Gamers interested in enrolling in the Empire’s new colony program can head to the game’s official site and sign up to participate in upcoming alpha and beta tests. Clockwork Empires will include a narrative-drivin single-player campaign as well as multiplayer for up to four players online and round-robin multiplayer.
Clockwork Empires is scheduled to launch in spring 2014 for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC.
