City of Steam Caps Off Closing with Farewell Trailer
The shutdown of Mechanist Games' free-to-play browser game City of Steam may have happened a few weeks back, but the official farewell to players came late yesterday in the form of a video from the development team. Capping off a wild ride through multiple publishing houses and a Steam campaign, City of Steam aimed to be one of the premier Steampunk inspired MMORPGs out there. While it may have missed the mark for many, there's no doubting that the journey was interesting to say the least.
That said, the team isn't ready to give up on the dream of a sequel or City of Steam "inspired" spin-off. As Mechanist Games states on the City of Steam website:
City of Steam certainly isn’t retired, but we'll needs time to reflect on these things. A sequel would have to do justice to the world in a way that honors the original, addresses as many critiques and quirks as possible, and improves or innovates at the same time. It would also have to be good enough to make up for the shortcomings of the original – stuff that no one was really happy with. Rushing into such a massive commitment would be foolish, and would risk destroying the goodwill that still exists for the game.
In the meantime, Mechanist Games moves on to their next project, the iOS/Android mobile RPG Heroes of Skyrealm, and while we won't be covering the game on MMOBomb, we did want to let City of Steam players know that if you copy your character name and server name here you can get some extra goodies in their next title should you choose to play.
