Development studio Gaslamp Games (Dungeons of Dredmor) has released a gameplay teaser trailer of their next project, Clockwork Empires.

Currently slated for a release in the spring of 2014, Clockwork Empires aims to provide players with a Dwarf Fortress-like experience with a Victorian-steampunk flavor. As citizens of “The Empire,” your colonists will each have unique personal histories, leading them to interact with one another, form social class structures, and work various jobs within the colony. Thrown into the mix for good measure will be elements of Lovecraftian cosmic horror as fishmen may attack from the sea or your citizens may become cultists under the spell of eldritch gods. Gaslamp Games plans to incorporate native support for “successive multiplayer” and save-game sharing, hopefully offering plenty of opportunities for Boatmurdered-like stories to emerge.

    I Love the scope of the game that the Devs talk about, but I worry a little bit that maybe they’ve bitten off more than they can chew?

    Ha! Good luck doing Dwarf Fortress without ASCII

  • katamari damacy

    A dwarf fortress that doesn’t look like ASCII diarrhea in my eyes sounds like a grand idea! I’ll be looking forward to that spring 2014 release
