Developer Mechanist Games is collaborating with publisher Reality Squared Games to release the English version of City of Steam, a browser-based industrial age fantasy 3D MMORPG developed utilizing the Unity 3D engine.  The game is projected for a Beta release later this year.

R2Games, which publishes free-to-play titles such as Crystal Saga and Wartune, aims to bring City of Steam to a large international audience.  This will be the company's first Unity 3D game. 

"It's going be a challenge, sure, but I see a lot of potential in City of Steam," says Jared Psigoda, CEO of Reality Squared Games.  "Mechanist Games' approach to making a game is something we're thrilled to be a part of.  We want to make sure City of Steam gets the recognition it deserves for being the innovative game that it is." 

In City of Steam, players explore the ancient city of Nexus.  It's a once great civilization where mechanical steamworks exist and magic is ever-present.  The story initially unfolds from a personal perspective, where players must find a new home for themselves and their families.  Quests unravel the boundless mysteries of not only Nexus, but the player-character's own shrouded past. 

"City of Steam is a game founded on community values, market-facing ears, player ideas and input.  This is where our development focus needs to be, especially as the momentum snowballs toward release," adds David Lindsay, CEO and Creative Lead of Mechanist Games.  "A partnership with R2Games gives us that extra boost needed to make City of Steam's great release, an amazing one.  We share a vision that this game can be the very best browser-based MMO out there." 

Mechanist Games is an international development team of members from a number of countries including China, New Zealand, the United States, and Canada.
