Explore space as you’ve never seen it before in a giant steam-powered locomotive engine. Use a bat to navigate. Survive celestial horrors and your Inconvenient Aunt.
A world where cricket, tea and London exist at the wild edges of Victorian space colonisation. Quail in the face of the Clockwork Sun. Master the blistering language of the stars. Lead a revolution, or uphold the edicts of Queen Victoria. Trade in barrels of time, violently fertile seeds, or human souls.
It is not safe in the skies. Defend yourself against pirates, scorn-flukes, the Cyst of Faces, and worse. Your every foray into space is as precarious as a Polar expedition. You’ll need to balance your resources carefully and keep an eye on your crew’s Terror to avoid an exciting array of deaths.
Bathe your eyes in lush 2D art: giant fungal consciousnesses, creaking steam-driven cities, icy wastes and dizzying starfields.
Build a lineage of space captains – roguish, honest, selfish, revolutionary, upstanding, cowardly – and let their actions shape the stories you discover. Die, and pass on some of your resources to your next captain.
Make terrible decisions. Live with their outcomes. Will you run guns for the Independents? Or spies for the Empire? Choose wisely – your decisions will affect the fate of the region; not just for yourself, but for your future captains as well.
Collect a crew of officers, each with their own stories, dreams and wants.
Choose your captain’s term of address and customise their appearance – your character’s gender is your business. Unlock mascots and scouts for your vessel: bats, birds, squid, owls.
Customisable settings enable you to tweak your locomotive’s movement and refine combat difficulty to find the level of challenge you require.
