Clockwork Empires first launched onto Steam Early Access a while back and quickly drew attention. It was pretty hard not to, given the Victorian colonist/steampunk/Cthulhu vibe going on.
Gameplay itself follows a simulator/strategy pattern where you must take care of your colonists and expand the empire. However, the dangers lurking throughout the land include the likes of cults, fishpeople, and other oddities.
The latest update finally brings Clockwork Empires to its official release version. If you’re interested, you can nab the game for a launch week discount of $26.99 on Steam.
