Mechanist Games is going full steam ahead (pun fully intended) with City of Steam, an MMO set in an industrial-like fantasy world created using Unity 3D. They completed a round of alpha testing in August and are now getting ready to hold beta tests before year end.
As of now, the beta is closed and will consist of a few 5-day test phases commencing on November 16th, 2012. The schedule is as follows:
Springtide: Nov. 16 – 20
Summercrest: Nov. 30 – Dec. 4
Autumnwane: Dec. 14 – 18
Winter Festival: Dec. 23 – 28
For those taking part in the beta, there are Collaborator Packs which you can pick up for in-game extras like character name reservation, guaranteed beta access, social currency, and more, including higher level packs which let you personally design items and named as a city founder in-game.
