City of Steam : Diving into the Closed Beta

Posted Nov 16, 2012 by Suzie Ford

City of Steam is a clear entry into what we like to think of as a new sub-genre of MMOs, steampunk. We offer our readers a brand new hands on preview of City of Steam. Check it out and then leave your reactions in the comments.

Whenever I hear the phrase “web based MMO” I instantly think of either MMOs for kids such as Marvel’s Super Hero Squad Online and Wizard 101 or turn based “social games” which require you to save up turns or energy while offline so you can play in tiny chunks of time. Don’t get me wrong, me and my kids are big fans of MSHSO and the 101 games, but the phrase never makes me think of a “full-fledged” MMO experience. So naturally, when I got an invite to take a tour of City of Steam’s upcoming beta build, I wasn’t expecting much. But I was intrigued based primarily on the setting and the idea that there could be a solid MMO experience in a browser. It has been one of the promises of the Unity Engine for a while now; someone has to eventually knock one out of the park right?
