Deepworld: a 2D steampunk crafting adventure MMOG [New gameplay video!]

Pre-orders now available!
Get early access and exclusive goodies by pre-ordering the game!

------------------------------------

Deepworld is an upcoming massively-multiplayer 2D steampunk crafting adventure, with a Mac release coming soon and iOS a couple of months after.

Join thousands of other players and explore, craft, and build your way through a persistent online universe of connected worlds! Visit your friends' creations and join them in expanding to new heights. Shield your own home from the denizens of the internet, or just let them in and see what happens!

The world is broken from an apocalypse of murky origin. The scientists of the past built complex machinery and dabbled in autonomous machines, but in doing so they unleashed a terror. Survivors have been recovering and finding their way in this new disturbed world, searching for raw materials and remnants of machines past in order to stay alive, but the origins of the apocalypse linger - and they won't stay quiet forever.

What kind of machines and steampunkalicious exploration would you like to see? Let us know!

Glad you guys like the art! We figured you don't see a lot of crosshatched hand-drawn artwork in games these days, so we might as well try it. Then we found out it's probably because crosshatching is really hard to tile (but we think it's worth it).
