Steam Hammer brings survival steampunk to early access this Friday

For those craving more Telsa coils and calculation engines than swords and spells, there’s the brand-new Steam Hammer that’s coming to Steam early access on Friday, May 12th.

Players begin by crash-landing their airship on an island in an industrial revolution-level world. Faced with rebuilding their society and technology, the community will craft their own weapons, buildings, and airships from materials around the island. It won’t be a cakewalk, due to the inherent conflict between the two factions vying for power.

Steam Hammer is a 64-player survival sandbox with lots of steampunk gadgets and weapons, including chain swords, airships, motorcycles, alchemistry, and Telsa generators. Also, there are turkey farms, because it isn’t just about nonstop killing.The game just had a wipe of its global servers two days ago to prepare for its big moment on Steam. In preparation for the early access release, you can check out the trailer after the break.

I thought I had never heard of this so I went to Steam just now & It’s on my “Following” list. I musta discovered it while inebriated one night and forgot about it, lol.

Genuinely curious when this “sandbox” thing will run out of gas from too many games, too much dilution.

One big reason why I think the “REAL” future is in virtual reality. There isn’t much left to do on a flat screen.

Putting you inside the game? That’s a genuinely new ball game, and there are a lot of brilliant people working out those problems amongst the biggest tech companies in the world.

Steam Hammer is a 64-player survival sandbox

I was mildly intrigued until this bit. Nope, I’ll pass.

Those guys are clearly overcompensating for something with those pistols.

Ahem…Tesla…

It’s PVP so thanks but hell naw, maybe they’ll add a PVE server if things go well.

I wish someone would make City of Steam in UE.

Copy paste Life is Feudal, add in steam punk. Supposedly a developer left from LiF left and moved from on to make this. Sadly this looks more finished than LiF is in their MMO. Let’s just hope there’s no pending lawsuits for stealing code…

Pity its PVP if it had a PVe server I would be all over this. :(

You know, Survival seems like such an oddly specific genre to have captured such a (relatively) large share of the gaming market right now, and the imaginations of so many developers.

I mean, RPGs, FPSs, RTSs, even things like racing games, the genre is either so broad and malleable or the concept is so basic and intuitive, it seems like it’s [conceptually] simple to make the game you want and slot it into the relevant category.

But the survival genre is predicated on such a specific and sort of arbitrary ruleset, it almost seems like you can’t just make a game that happens to be survival-based – but more like a lot of developers are filling up the survival genre with products.

It just seems a little curious. You know – is it all going to end up being a big fad that just blows over?

The reason is simple Minecraft is the second biggest selling computer game in history second only to Tetris.
