It looks like another steampunk game is on the horizon, this time from Russian publisher, GFI. The game is called “Steam Slug” and it looks like it will be a third person shooter set in the 14th century. The twist is that steam machines with living brains in jars have risen up and in the ensuing war for survival, the world is reduced to something of an apocalyptic wasteland.
I’ll give it marks for doing something completely out from left field with the story…most of the Russian games that I’ve played have whacked out sci-fi tales whether it’s S.T.A.L.K.E.R. or You Are Empty. Steam Slug sounds like it’s going to be following that tradition and looking at the first screens, it’s not going to disappoint in that department. It sounds like it could be interesting.
