Although limited in duration, City of Steam's
alpha and closed beta sessions last year have helped build a following for Mechanist Games'
upcoming steampunk-flavored browser-based MMO. And now, thanks to a publishing partnership with Reality Squared Games
, the industrial age fantasy game will have access to a wider audience.
R2 Games already has other free-to-play titles in its portfolio, but City of Steam
will be the first using the Unity 3D engine. R2 Games CEO Jared Psigoda
stated, "I see a lot of potential in City of Steam
. 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."
