During GDC, we had the opportunity to check out City of Steam, a steampunk based MMO on the rise in many folk's mind. We have a full report of our time with City of Steam that you won't want to miss. Read on before heading to the comments.
City of Steam offers ten races for players to choose from, everything from humans (with lots of factions), orcs, goblins, and even elves. There is a lot of customization in the character creation phase and players will enjoy some of the choices. We created a steamed out orc for the demo. Getting into the game and starting quickly is extremely important to Mechanist Games: we started up very quickly and were able to move around easily. The gameplay had flow to it and character movement was smooth.
