Clockwork Empires heading to Steam Early Access next month

Clockwork Empires (PC) Steam Early Access Announcement - Header

Colonial overlords Gaslamp Games has decided to send their steampunk-flavored survival-management sim Clockwork Empires to the wilds of the Internet, also known as Steam Early Access. The latest version will go live on August 15 for $29.99. In an alternate, dystopian past, players will serve as a Junior Bureaucrat of the Empire and lead a band of colonists as they attempt to survive against Cthulhu-esque cosmic horrors, murderers, and their own ambitions. Each colonist will have their own personality traits that might see them become a proper citizen of the Empire or turn against their neighbors in service to their own avarice (damnable mumpers and bludgers!). Players can attempt to follow assignments issued by the Empire or strike out on their own with a faction of their choosing.
