Well, what can I say, the vibrations of the Ætherweb have carried news of an upcoming steampunk-themed game to me.
To quote the official press-release:
The game itself is presented in a fictional Imperial Victorian setting.
Just take a look at the screenshots (click to enlarge):
The game, scheduled for release Summer 2010, will be available via XBox Live Arcade and it will also feature a multi-player modus and the option to have additional friendly ships controlled by the AI.
Judging from the graphics I must say I am quite stunned, here are a few more screenshots to prove the point:
A few words concerning the people behind the game:
Games Distillery is a Bratislava-based development studio founded in 2008. The team of Games Distillery has a ton of experience, the best known projects members have previously been engaged in is probably Anno 1602 and Anno 1503.
Well, I shall keep this game on my radar and pass any additional information on to you. Now I just have to find out who in my inner circle of friends with an XBox can be talked into
a) getting this game and
b) lending me the XBox for a yet to be defined amount of time
Where did I put my hypno-ray projector? Damn, so many things in boxes here already…
