European Vehicle Pack Rolls Out For Cities In Motion 2
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Paradox Interactive has announced the release of the European Vehicle Pack, a new add-on for Cities in Motion 2, the transit-planning strategy game from Colossal Order. The addition includes five new vehicles inspired by large European cities.

Pack yourself in one of five new vehicles inspired by the efficiency of large European cities and designed to keep your cities in motion. These new vehicles are not only easy on the eye, but they ride like a seamless untroubled dream.

Jump on and experience the thrill of Jubilee GL and Roadmaster 2000. The Roadmaster is a modern classic and a very recognizable one with its two-storey build and red colour scheme. The GL might be slow on the turn, but makes up for that with fuel efficiency and low maintenance.

For those who like to stay the course whilst being partial to rails, there is the City 26 tram, with its very low fuel consumption. For larger masses, try out the Galaxie HK metro train, or when your system serves huge amounts of people, head straight for the Musketeur 01. The Musketeur 01 has a sophisticated, sturdy and steel design that offers much despite its large fuel consumption.

Become the conductor. Do the locomotion!

CiM 2: European Vehicle Pack is available now for $4.99 (USD).

Mac Users To Get Early Access To Clockwork Empires Soon
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Gaslamp Games has announced that the upcoming Clockwork Empires will hopefully be available on Steam Early Access to Mac and Linux users sometime after its debut there in early August. The game is currently in what the developer calls "Earliest Access" for Windows users. The new city building strategy title with a steampunk theme puts players in the role of a junior bureaucrat tasked with building successful colonies, and features both single and multiplayer action.

Q. “Is there OS X or Linux support?”
A. “Not for Earliest Access, no. We have unpolished, internal ports that are not ready for prime-time. We hope to have this up for the first or second incarnation of Steam Early Access in August.”

About the game:

The Clockwork Empire is expanding! Brave people, seeking glory and wealth, are setting forth for uncharted lands in search of fame and fortune. This is a new age of Science – fearless naturalists, clever tinkerers, and brilliant inventors hold sway over the imagination of the common folk, wielding voltaic energies and constructing chromed brass clockwork engines. It is an age of The Arts – poets lie expiring on every street corner, crying for Reform and more laudanum, while the Empire Times spews forth from the great presses of the Capitol, filled with stories of inspiring hubris and adventure from The Colonies. It is an age of Trade – the many arms of the Imperial Chartered Antipodean Trading Company lurch across the oceans like the limbs of a commodity-crazed octopus, dredging untapped markets for wealth and glory. It is an age of Politics – scheming agents of the Empire skulk through the slums and grottoes of the colonies, dodging anarchist schemes and cultists’ rituals, and fulfilling secretive missions on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen. Meanwhile, in the Capitol, favours are curried in the Houses of Parliament and the Panopticon between the artistocratic Lords and the rising classes of Industrial Barons.

Fly the Union Cog over all three identified corners of the world!

But not all is well in the Empire. Strangers gather under lampposts and in bars, telling stories of Those That Live Beyond The Stars, operating in invisible geometries from another dimension. The Queen, some whisper, has been locked away at the behest of her own Prime Minister… but to what end? The Church of the Holy Cog prays for the salvation of the Empire, yet everybody fears the indescribable colors that trace lines through the darkest woods and beyond the reassuring glow of the gas-lamps. The fortunes of the Clockwork Empire are watched, silently, by unseen eye-clusters and malevolent entities trying to breach the walls of reality into this world.

Take on the role of a Junior Bureaucrat (Colonial Grade), sent forth to seek fame, promotions, and natural resources to feed the ever-hungry maw of industry and commerce. Build mighty colonies, fill them with magnificent factories and tortured machinery, and harness the power of steam and energies brought forth by determined, unregulated men and women of Science!

Glory is yours to seize; the world is yours to do with as you please. For fame and fortune, for Science, and for the Queen and the glory of the Clockwork Empires!
