After what developers Mechanist Games are calling a successful alpha testing, they’ve announced a closed beta test for their upcoming game, City of Steam.
The alpha test ran over four weekends, finishing on August 20th, and 17,500 keys were activated. Four classes and 9 character options were provided with the game.
The devs have reportedly squashed out several bugs that were reported during the alpha test, including the movements and animations for characters being smoothed out. They’ve also taken several suggestions by the players into consideration and implemented some of them into the game.
The beta test will launch in November. It will have a higher level cap, more characters, more quests, and more races and classes. Further details will be announced soon.
This unique MMORPG browser-based game shows impressive graphics detailing an industrial age fantasy genre. The complex storyline is based on the table-top book series, The New Epoch, by David Lindsay. Players take on the role of refugees fleeing their troubled homelands to the once powerful, now declining metropolis of Nexus. Mechanical steam-work blurs with magic as players explore the rich world of a once great civilization. Hundreds of quests lead players through ancient ruins, searching for archaic spoils while trying to find a place, for themselves and their family, in their new home.
